Blue Jays set pitching schedule
The Blue Jays announced their pitching schedule for the next few days on Thursday afternoon. Pitching coach Bruce Walton posted the schedule through Tuesday in advance of tomorrow’s intrasquad game at the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.
More information on the intrasquad game — which is open to the public — can be found in today’s notebook along with items on the potential for an extra Wild Card team and John Farrell‘s reunion with Terry Francona. Also on the main site, you can find my feature on veteran left-hander Darren Oliver who was run out of the game in 2005 but came back one year later and has since recorded the best five seasons of his career.
Don’t forget you can follow me on Twitter @gregorMLB where I’m posting daily pictures and various tidbits from around Spring Training.
March 2 — Intrasquad game
March 3 vs Pittsburgh:
March 4 @ Pittsburgh:
Henderson Alvarez (Two innings)
March 5 @ Detroit:
Drew Hutchison (Two innings)
March 6 vs Phillies:
Ricky Romero (Two innings)
Chad Jenkins (Two innings)
Luis Perez (Two innings)
Worth noting: RHP Dustin McGowan is not included on this list because he is being skipped first time through the rotation in Spring Training. This doesn’t have anything to do with a recent injury — the club is just being cautious and bringing him along more slowly because of his previous shoulder surgeries. He will eventually take Hutchison’s starting spot in Spring.
