A look at some of the news and notes surrounding the Toronto Blue Jays including updates on Chase Anderson, Russell Martin and more.
One More Year For Martin
Former Blue Jays backstop Russell Martin has indicated that he would like to play for one more season. The 36-year old is a free agent after spending last season with the Los Angeles Dodgers where he hit .220 with six homers in 83 games.
Martin just concluded his 14th season in the majors and has been to the postseason ten times during that tenure. Even with all that postseason experience, the Canadian has yet to play for a World Series winner.
Anderson Updated His Social Media Following Trade
Newly acquired pitcher Chase Anderson wasted no time updating his Twitter profile following the trade that sent him to Toronto in exchange for Chad Spanberger two days ago. Anderson inserted “Go Jays” with a Canadian flag into his profile along with updating his location to Celina, TX/ Toronto, CA.
Anderson also took to Instagram to express his excitement for the next chapter of his career north of the border.

Vladdy Getting At It Early
There was much discussion last season about the physical condition of rookie Vladimir Guerrero Jr. moving forward. Vladdy seems to be taking his offseason training seriously as Hazel Mae tweeted this video of the Guerrero Jr.
It will be interesting to see what kind of shape Vladdy is in when spring training kicks off if he is already hitting the gym.
