Blue Jays Spring Training Recap – March 17, 2012

The Blue Jays split the squads on Saturday and played two games, one versus the Philadelphia Phillies where the Jays lost a 10-inning contest 4-3, read the recap here.

A few highlites:

Most of the action occurred late in the Phillies’ 4-3, 10-inning victory over the Blue Jays Saturday at Bright House Field. But the key takeaway for the Jays came at the beginning.

Blue Jays right-hander Brandon Morrow allowed five hits, one run and one walk and struck out four in 3 1/3 innings. Morrow now has a 1.08 ERA in three spring starts.

“Unfortunately I didn’t get all the way through the four innings,” Morrow said. “I didn’t have particularly good fastball command today, especially out of the wind-up but that kind of gave me an opportunity to use all of my other pitches in situations that I’m looking to use them in. Behind in the count, 2-1, those counts where I’ve been hit hard before, when I’ve had to stay hard with the fastball.

The other squad played against the Atlanta Braves and again the Jays lost a close one 5-3, read the full recap here.

Up next for the Blue Jays: Left-hander Brett Cecil will make his fourth start of the spring when the Blue Jays host the Phillies on Sunday afternoon at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. Cecil has yet to surrender an earned run in six innings this spring while striking out four and walking three. He will be followed on the mound by Francisco Cordero, Jason Frasor, Casey Janssen and Carlos Villanueva.
