Blue Jays Still Mulling Over Stretching Biagini Out:

General Manager Ross Atkins chimed in on the Biagini dilemma and the discussions to stretch him out. ““There’s definitely that possibility, but I wouldn’t say we’re leaning that way by any means because he was so important to our bullpen a year ago,” general manager Ross Atkins said Monday. “We’ve talked about it. He really would like to be considered a starting alternative and he recognizes what that means. He recognizes that means he could potentially have to spend some time in triple-A.”

Biagini quipped on the topic as well “If somebody’s saying, ‘Hey, who wants an opportunity to start,’ I would raise my hand,” he added later. “But I’m not campaigning for it.”
