Blue Jays' Steve Pearce: Preferred to be every-day outfielder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pearce, who was previously presumed to be in line for a platoon role at first base, is the Jays' preferred every-day left fielder, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Pearce is slated to be ready for Opening Day after having elbow surgery in September, but whether he'll have the arm strength to play the outfield still remains uncertain. On Saturday, general manager Ross Atkins said Justin Smoak playing every day at first base with Pearce in left is the club's "best-case scenario," the first time in which Atkins has explicitly said such. The optimal situation would work out for Pearce from a fantasy standpoint, as he'd likely be in line for more at-bats without having to platoon with Smoak at first base.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Looking to become everyday first baseman
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Smoak, who was previously presumed to be in line for a platoon role, is the Jays' preferred every-day first baseman, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

On Saturday, after the Jays' first full-squad workout, general manager Ross Atkins called Smoak playing every day at first, with Steve Pearce the primary left fielder, as the club's "best-case scenario," the first time he's explicitly expressed that. Pearce (elbow) is supposed to be ready to play the outfield by Opening Day, but if he's not, then the newly-acquired Pearce will cut into Smoak's playing time at first base. However, if Pearce can play left as expected, then Smoak's fantasy value will get a huge boost with the prospect of an everyday role.

Blue Jays' Kendrys Morales: Works on defense during offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morales worked a lot of his defense during the offseason in preparation for a possible platoon role at first base, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Morales seems optimistic about playing a bit more on defense in 2017 than he has in recent seasons, but manager John Gibbons made clear Saturday that Morales playing the field is not part of the plan. "He came here to DH," Gibbons said. "Of course you play interleague games, he'll get those games at first, but that's not his job, that's not why he was brought here. We'll get him out there occasionally." The important note to take away from the coach's comments is that Morales won't lose at-bats during interleague play, putting the 33-year-old on track for a third-straight season of 550-plus at-bats.

Blue Jays' Devon Travis: Repaired knee nearing full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Travis says he's close to full health after having offseason surgery to remove a flap of cartilage from his right knee, Corey Long of MLB.com reports.

Manager John Gibbons said he expects Travis to be ready for full activity sooner rather than later. "We're going to see how he progresses," Gibbons said. "Hopefully it's not too much longer, but you also want to be smart with it, so he doesn't experience any setbacks." Travis said he's not feeling any pain, although he isn't certain the bone bruise is gone. The second baseman expects to increase his lateral movement over the next few days.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Expects to miss two to three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donaldson (calf) announced on Sunday that he expects to miss two or three weeks of spring training due to his recent calf strain, John Lott of The Athletic reports.

Donaldson tweaked his calf while running on Friday, but the general perception around camp was that the injury wasn't too serious. The Blue Jays will likely take a very cautious approach to the injury, and that could explain the two to three week timetable. It appears that Donaldson expects to be ready for Opening Day, but the situation is worth monitoring.
