The Toronto Blue Jays have now played 10 games in their 2020 Spring Training circuit and have pulled off a 6-2-2 record. Plenty of players have been performing well in the early stages of camp, including several pitchers looking to make a good impression. Let’s have a look at some of the arms that are throwing well already.
While in my opinion the win-loss records in Spring Training don’t mean much at all, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at who has turned heads in Florida during the first 10 games of the Spring Training schedule. With the Blue Jays being 6-2-2, things have gone fairly well overall on both sides of the ball. In the field, Kevin Smith leads the club in games appeared in with eight, while six other players have played in seven, and just two of those look to crack the active roster (Cavan Biggio and Vladimir Guerrero Jr).
On the mound, the Blue Jays have had nine different pitchers throw in at least three games with Trent Thornton leading the club with five innings pitched, trailed closely behind by Anthony Kay. This early stage of camp is all about evaluating as many arms as possible, with most of the appearances being no more than an inning or two.
While this is basically a small sample size as you can get, here are the top five pitchers that have turned heads so far in camp.
