The Toronto Blue Jays will take on the Baltimore Orioles today at 1:05 PM from Sarasota, Florida. As far as I know, the game will not be shown on TV an is only available through MLB.TV.

Mike Wilner of The Fan 590 posted a picture on Twitter of the players the Blue Jays have sent to Sarasota and also provides us with today’s lineups.

Drew Hutchison is slated to start and should pitch one-to-two innings while Ricky Romero and Marcus Stroman are also expected to get work.

Gregor Chisholm of tweeted that Casey Janssen, Brett Lawrie and Edwin Encarnacion will get the day off, which are more quasi-injuries than actual ones. He goes on to clarify through his Twitter account.

Props to Chisholm for putting in work today on the Twitter machine.

And in other news and notes from around the league, New York Yankees’ pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will make his North American debut today and according to is scheduled to pitch in the fifth inning.

I’ll try to provide a recap and thoughts of the Jays’ game later today (if I end up being able to watch it in peace).
