Blue Jays: Kevin Pillar could get pushed out of the outfield picture

As Anthony Alford and Dalton Pompey continue to impress this spring, one has to wonder if Kevin Pillar is suddenly feeling the pinch of job security. Like every MLB team this spring, the Blue Jays are going to have some tough decisions to make before Opening Day.

Quick Spring Recap: Alford Homers Again

Quick Spring Recap: Alford Homers Again

Blue Jays 8 Phillies 7 Another game where we got some runs, and another 5 run inning. We seemed to have great luck on balls in play in the 5 run third inning. And then Anthony Alford hit his third home run in two days and his fourth of the spring. He’s looking great at the plate. Shoemaker had a mixed outing. Well not so much mixed, more a bad outing. He pitched 3 innings, and had 4 strikeouts. But he walked 4 and gave up 2 home runs. That gives him 4 home runs allowed on the spring. I’ll give him a bit of a break, thinking that he’s working on pitches, but I’d love him to have a...

Happy Sunday. I missed the big news, Bryce Harper is playing for the Phillies today, and apparently we’ll see a four man outfield against him. The Blue Jays aren’t sharing much news with us today. No word on Pompey’s knee. The one bit of news is that Cavan Biggio was in a ‘minor car accident’ on Wednesday. They said he’s been cleared to play tomorrow. Cavan said that Anthony Alford stopped at the crash to offer to help and was surprised to see his teammate involve. Biggio said it was good to see a friend’s face. Today’s game is on TV. YAY. And the team has been...
