Scott Richmond has not pitched this spring and has been limited in his workouts due to a sore shoulder. There has been no official news about his condition but it must be now diagnosed as the Jays have put him on the 60 day DL. Look for an update later today or tomorrow.
The Jays claimed right handed pitcher Casey Fein from the Red Sox to fill the roster spot. Fein was in the Tigers organization last season at Toledo in AAA. He pitched in 42 games for the Mudhens, and he finished 26 of them with 14 saves. Fein had a 3.41 ERA and had 66 strikeouts in 58 innings. Fein also pitched 11 major league innings and had a 7.94 ERA. Fein did have 9 strikeouts in his 11 innings but he walked too many hitters and gave up two home runs.
Meanwhile in todays action Kyle Drabek and Brett Wallace have made their Blue Jay debuts. Drabek pitched two innings and gave up 2 runs. Wallace singled in his first at-bat but popped up in his second. Marc Rzepczynski has been the best pitcher of the day so far for the Jays, two shutout innings.
Edit (3:50pm): JP Arencibia just belted a monster two run home run, his first of the spring. I would expect JPA to hit well early in the spring when pitchers are trying to get the ball over the plate in those smaller ballparks.
