I thought I’d drop out a couple update bullets on how the Blue Jays are fairing in Florida:
- Josh Johnson pitched a perfect 3.2 innings yesterday, racking up 5 strikeouts before exiting the game due to his pitch count. A good sign.
- Anthony Gose looks much more discipline at the plate – he went 3 for 4 yesterday and also had his 4th and 5th stolen bases of the spring.
- Jose Bautista continued to show power and that his wrist is not a issue – he hit his third homer of the spring today.
- Colby Rasmus returned to the line up today after being delayed twice with a sore right shoulder. He went 0-2 with a walk and a strikeout. Good to see him back on the field.
- Ricky Romero struggle with command, walking 3 and giving up 3 hits over 2 innings. Nothing to worry about at the point in the spring, but worth keeping an eye on since Romero handed out a lot of free passes last season.
The count down is on until my trip to see the boys in Florida. March 21st can’t come soon enough!
