Quick Recap: Jays lose to Rays

MLB: Spring Training-Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue Jays Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Rays 5 Blue Jays 3

Lots of good pitching, from the Jays. And some of the regulars had good days with the bats.


  • Marcus Stroman: Pitched 2.2. Allowed 4 hits (3 singles and a double), no walks, with 3 strikeouts. I think the strike zone looked pretty small early in the game. Marcus looked pretty good.
  • Aaron Loup: Got the last out of the 3rd inning.
  • Marco Estrada: 2 innings, 1 hit, 1 strikeout. Looked great.
  • Roberto Osuna: 1 inning, 2 k. Also looked great.
  • Joe Smith: 1 inning, 2 strikeouts and a hit batter.
  • Bo Schultz: Had a rough time of it. Gave up back-to-back singles to start the inning. Got a strikeouts, but the ball got away to move up the runners. Another single plus a Darrell Ceciliani error, scored 2 runs. He got a pop up, then was replaced. In all 2 outs, 4 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), and a strikeout. It is the type of appearance that makes you doubt he could make the team.
  • Matt Dermody got the last out of the inning.
  • Ryan Tepera: Gave up single, in between a couple of ground outs. The runner would score on a Yeltsin Gudino error.


  • Kevin Pillar: 2 for 3, double. Hitting .400.
  • Russell Martin: 0 for 1, k. Also threw out a base stealer. .250.
  • Troy Tulowitzki: 0 for 2, k. His first game action of the season.
  • Jose Bautista: 2 for 3, double. And he stole 3rd after his double. His ground out was hit hard. He looked really good, and made a nice catch in the field. .563.
  • Steve Pearce: 1 for 2. 2 RBI. .250.
  • Rowdy Tellez: 0 for 3, 2 k. He didn’t have a good day at the plate. Had a nice play with the glove. .188.
  • Melvin Upton: 0 for 2. Really hasn’t impressed me at all, but it is early. .111.
  • Darwin Barney: 1 for 3. .273.
  • Jake Elmore: 2 for 3. Also an error. .313.
  • Reese McGuire: 0 for 2.
