The Blue Jays start the spring with a loss to the Tigers 4-0.

One of those games where the pitchers are ahead of the batters, the only pitcher to give up runs, on either team, was Thomas Pannone. He gave up 4 runs on 5 hits (2 doubles and a home run) while getting 2 outs. Not a good showing.

Ryan Borucki started, pitched 2 innings. Allowed 2 singles and a walk, but no runs. Had a strikeout.

Other Jays pitchers:

  • Conor Fisk: got the third out for Pannone, a grounder that went off his bare hand. But we weren’t told of an injury.
  • Sam Gaviglio: 2 innings, 1 single, 1 walk, 2 k.
  • Elvis Luciano: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 walk. He got a pop out and 2 ground outs.
  • Tim Mayza: 1 inning, 2 singles, k.
  • Jacob Waguespack: 1 inning, 2 k.
  • Jackson McClelland: 1 inning, k. Ben and Mike said he hit 98 with his fastball.

Hitters:

  • Devon Travis: 0 for 2.
  • Eric Sogard: 0 for 2
  • Brandon Drury: 0 for 2, 2 k. Wilner talked about him having prism lens glasses.
  • Santiago Espinal: 1 for 2 with a triple in the 9th.
  • Teoscar Hernandez: 2 for 2, double and single. Ben said he took a bad route to a fly ball (but he made the catch).
  • Dwight Smith: 0 for 2.
  • Justin Smoak: 0 for 2.
  • Rowdy Tellez: 0 for 1, walk. Ben said he made a very nice play at first base.
  • Kevin Pillar: 0 for 1, walk. Walked in his first at bat. Expect to see many stories of his improved plate discipline.
  • Jonathan Davis: 1 for 2, single.
  • Danny Jansen: 0 for 2.
  • Reese McGuire: 0 for 1.
  • Freddy Galvis: 0 for 2, turned a nice DP.

  • Dalton Pompey: 0 for 2, k.
