Blue Jays still looking for lefty for bullpen
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Blue Jays are looking for another lefthander for their bullpen, as Marcus Stroman's season-ending injury has created a ripple effect throughout the pitching staff.

Stroman's vacancy in the starting rotation will be filled by Aaron Sanchez, who was expected to share closing duties with Brett Cecil

That means Cecil can't help with relief in the middle innings, as was the original plan when he was slated as a co-closer. Manager John Gibbons told MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm that it would be "ideal" to find another southpaw to help with the mid-innings.

Jeff Francis , signed by the team during the offseason, is a candidate. The 33-year-old posted a 5.85 ERA over 20 innings with three teams last year.

"He's a different type pitcher now, but I could see a place on this team for him. ... He's going to come out and throw strikes, and that's so valuable coming out of the bullpen," Gibbons said. "You don't want to bring in guys trying to find the strike zone. He can be tough on lefties, but he can also get righties out. I think, too, coming out of the bullpen in that role, that can extend his career another four or five years. He's a great competitor."

Colt Hynes, who went 1-4 with a 3.67 for two Triple-A teams last year, is also a candidate for the spot.

Blue Jays' Marcus Stroman out for season with torn ACL
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Blue Jays announced Tuesday that pitcher Marcus Stroman will miss the entire 2015 season after suffering a torn ACL.

Stroman suffered the knee injury during a bunt drill Tuesday, Sportsnet reports. General manager Alex Anthopoulos said that the pitcher was "crushed" by the diagnosis. Anthopoulos also indicated that the team is expected to fill the vacant rotation spot internally. Aaron Sanchez, Daniel Norris and Marco Estrada, who were battling for the final spot in the team's rotation, will likely have the chance to win two spots. It's possible Johan Santana could factor into the team's rotation plans once he's ready for regular-season action.

Stroman will seek a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, MLB.com reports.

Blue Jays' Stroman hasn't allowed an earned run in two spring starts
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays starting pitcher Marcus Stroman was on the hill for the second time this spring Monday against the Astros. He threw 2 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing two hits and two walks.

Stroman hit one batter and struck out three. He has allowed one unearned run in 4 1/3 innings, while striking out four.

Monday marked the first time this spring Stroman worked with catcher Russell Martin in a game.

"I'm trying to get to learn him as much as possible and he's trying to learn me," Stroman said, per MLB.com. "It's not an easy process, I throw a pretty good amount of pitches, so getting on the same page is going to take a bit of time.

"It was pretty good for the first time, him catching me in a game. We were pretty much on the same page and just looking forward to developing that relationship and getting to the point where we're in sync with each other."

Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman developing sinker this spring
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman is hoping to have a better spring this year after struggling in 2014, reports MLB.com.

"I struggled all last spring, I wanted to make the team so bad," Stroman said following his debut during the Blue Jays' 4-1 win over the Pirates on Wednesday. "I feel a lot different. I feel much more relaxed, I'm focused. I know what I have to do rather than doing everything in my power to go out there and try to make the team, doing more than I had to. So I'm relaxed, I'm motivated, I'm ready to go. I'm excited for this year."

Stroman heads into the 2015 campaign looking to add another pitch, a sinker.

"I've always wanted a sinker," Stroman said. "If you can have a sinker, all hitters say that's one of the hardest pitches to hit when it's located. So it was not that I needed another pitch to make an adjustment, it was more so that I saw it as a weapon I never had that I wanted to add to my arsenal."
