3) Health!– As of right now, the Blue Jays are healthy. Casey Janssen has been placed on the 15day DL, but it doesn’t seem to be something that will be prolonged. Jose Reyes had his hamstring flair up, but it won’t put him on the DL…yet. Aside from those minor issues, the Blue Jays are healthy. Melky Cabrera is tumor free and able to run. And, he has been raking this spring! Brandon Morrow appears to be good to go looking terrific in his last spring start against the New York Mets. Jose Bautista looks like he’s back to his old ways hitting the ball hard. Brett Lawrie hasn’t taken a dive into any camera wells. Edwin Encarnacion‘s wrist is fine. He’s managed to escape a couple ugly hit by pitches this spring without inury. R. A. Dickey is over his neck/back issues. Mark Buehrle is…wait, he never gets hurt. It looks like fans will finally get the chance to see what this team, the team that was picked to win it all last season, can actually do.
