We get a bunch of the regulars today. The game isn’t on TV.
Vlad Jr. and Bo go back to the minor league side today. I know it doesn’t seem fair, but there is no sense in keeping them around to get a couple of at bats at the end of a spring game. They should be getting their work in.
There isn’t much for news coming out of the Jays camp today. Marcus Stroman is throwing, but there is no timetable for him getting back into game action. I find it hard to believe he’ll be pitching opening day. Steve Pearce calf is ‘improving’ but again, no timetable. It sounds like they are leaning towards Teoscar Hernandez to take his spot if he can’t start the season.
Arden Zwelling has a nice profile of John Axford.
