Upcoming Grapefruit League pitching schedule

The Blue Jays have released their pitching schedule for the first five games of the spring. It’s important to note that the amount of innings aren’t necessarily set in stone. It ultimately will come down to pitch count. If the starters have a long first inning then it’s less likely they’ll come back out for a second frame.

Is it early this season for the games or no ?

Yes, due to the World Baseball Classic, I imagine.

Correct. In terms of the workout days before games start it’s comparable. Camp, overall, is a little longer because of the WBC so therefore games start earlier as well.
