Blue Jays Spring Training Recap – March 24, 2012

Another spring training day and another spring training route for the Toronto Blue Jays.  This afternoon they defeated the Atlanta Braves 9-0 behind a solid pitching effort from Henderson Alvarez.  Here is the boxscore.

Adam Lind homered and drove in four runs while Kelly Johnson added three RBIs of his own en route to Toronto’s 9-0 victory over the Braves on Saturday afternoon at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.

Right-hander Henderson Alvarez got the start for the Blue Jays and allowed just one hit through five innings. The 21-year-old also didn’t walk a batter while recording four strikeouts.

Alvarez needed just 61 pitches to get through his fourth official outing of the spring. He has allowed just two earned runs in 11 innings and appears set to begin the year as Toronto’s No. 4 pitcher.

Up next: Left-hander Aaron Laffey will get the start when the Blue Jays host the Red Sox on Sunday afternoon at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium. Laffey will be followed on the mound by Jason Frasor, Carlos Villanueva and Luis Perez. The game is also expected to mark the return of third baseman Brett Lawrie, who hasn’t played since injuring his left groin on March 16 against Tampa Bay.
