Less than two innings into the team's first game of the season, Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia has already set the franchise's single-game passed-ball record with three.

General rule of thumb: If it's tough to hit, it's tough to catch. R.A. Dickey's knuckleball certainly qualifies as tough to hit. The passed balls contributed to two Indians runs.

Interestingly enough, Toronto sent catcher Josh Thole -- who caught Dickey during his Cy Young Award season with the Mets in 2012 -- to Triple-A at the end of spring training.
