Toronto Blue Jays

You can breathe, Toronto Blue Jays fans. There was plenty of concern surrounding Ricky Tiedemann, who was supposed to pitch in the Blue Jays Spring Training opener today but was scratched due to hamstring discomfort. The 21-year-old pitcher is not only the Blue Jays' top prospect but also ranked the 29th prospect in all of baseball. Thankfully, Blue Jays manager John Schneider confirmed to reporters that an MRI done on Tiedemann showed no structural damage.

The Toronto Blue Jays hit the field tomorrow for their first game of spring training, looking to dust off the memories of a tough end to their 2023 season. While there are a few new faces on the roster, the team is largely similar to the one swept out of the postseason by the Minnesota Twins in last year's Wild Card round. One player who isn't back with the Jays — or anywhere, as of right now — is third baseman Matt Chapman. During his two seasons with Toronto, he had a .234 batting average with 245 hits, 44 homers, 130 RBIs and 149 runs scored.

Lefty relief pitcher Tim Mayza may be one of the longest-tenured members at any level of the Toronto Blue Jays organization, but that hasn't exempted the veteran from the odd silly punishment or two. Mayza has been with the Blue Jays organization since 2013, and is probably not too worried about carrying out duties often passed on to younger players. According to Scott Mitchell of TSN, the 32-year-old will be operating as the team's bat boy for three innings tomorrow in their spring training opener, in full uniform, as a result of placing last in the league.

As much as the highest-paid player on a team can find himself in such a place, it's almost as if George Springer has slipped under the radar in the early days of spring training. Oh, sure, the Blue Jays outfielder has been his usual gregarious self here — self-deprecating times, poking fun at his teammates at others and overall making his presence known during the vast array of drills.

Alek Manoah didn't look like himself when he arrived at spring training last year following a third-place finish in the AL Cy Young Award voting, according to teammate Kevin Gausman. “I think he tried to rush and get ready and never got into a good spot,” Gausman said Saturday. Manoah was optioned to the minors twice and finished 3-9 with a 5.87 ERA, down from a 16-7 record and 2.24 ERA in 2022 that earned him an All-Star selection.
