Today is February 28th and it is also the first day for spring training games. The Jays take on the Yankees at 1pm in a 7 inning game. This year MLB allows shorter games in the first half of spring training. MLB will also allow a team to declare an inning over if the pitcher has throws 20 pitches, irrespective of the number of outs. You can see today's Yankee game on Sportsnet, or on the MLB Network. On Monday and Tuesday the Jays face the Pirates and Phillies.
Todays lineup is as follows:
The scheduled pitchers are:
Anthony Kay, TJ Zeuch, Jacob Waguespack, Bryan Baker, Joey Murray.
The roster is pretty much set but it will be interesting to see which of the younger players show well in spring. We haven't seen some of these players for over a year so getting to see them now will be good.
Robbie Ray starts Monday with Nate Pearson and Yosver Zulueta following. Steven Matz starts on Tuesday.
