We’ve made it to the end of the Florida spring training schedule for the Jays. Two games this weekend in Montreal (I’m wishing I planned to go) and then REAL BASEBALL.
I figured today’s game would be on MLB.TV but I’m wrong. I thought the YES network would be broadcasting it.
There are a couple of bits of Jays news this morning.
- Darrell Ceciliani was cut. Early in camp he was hitting well, but lately he’s been striking out a ton. He may be next in line for an outfield job, at least until Dalton Pompey recovers.
- And it looks like Aaron Sanchez will skip his last spring start, because of the blister on his pitching hand.
J.A. Happ gets his last tuneup before the season. I think the idea is to drop him back to about 60 pitches.
Upton is leading off, mostly to get some swings in against the lefty starter for the Yankees.
