      Blue Jays' Maicer Izturis: Will become free agent after club option declined Tuesday

      Izturis's $3 million club option for 2016 was declined, making the 35-year-old a free agent, John Lott of the National Post reports. Izturis missed the 2015 season with injuries to his groin and shoulder and he's played in just 11 major league games since 2014. He could very well catch on with another team in 2016, but he likely won't provide much fantasy production unless he can win a starting job in spring training.

      Blue Jays' Maicer Izturis won't play until end of April at earliest

      Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Sunday that infielder Maicer Izturis won't play before the end of April at the earliest, Sportsnet reports. Izturis is still recovering from a groin strain. His absence allowed the team to carry infield prospect Devon Travis on the initial roster, as Travis has been able to get regular time at second base. Izturis will likely need to prove he can be a backup option at shortstop in order to be added to the 25-man roster when healthy, reports. "We barely saw him; that's going to be a big part of it too," Anthopoulos said of backing up shortstop. "Between now and then ... things change so fast. If we had to make a move tomorrow, it would be a certain move, but you know things change so fast you don't even worry about it until you start getting close."
