Spring GameThread: Phillies @ Jays

The Jays last game at Dunedin this spring. It is on Sportsnet. And like so many of our spring games, it is against the Phillies. The Phillies and Jays play again tomorrow in Clearwater.

Spring training seems to last just a little bit too long. But then the idea is to get the starting pitchers built up to get to that 90-100 pitches.

Today’s the last spring start for Chris Bassitt. He hasn’t had a great spring, 13 innings, 7 earned, 9 strikeouts, 3 walks and 3 hit batters. He has most of our regulars playing behind him.

I plan to watch the first few innings and then get out to enjoy the day.
