Blue Jays' Steve Pearce: Should be available Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pearce (elbow) is progressing in his throwing program and should be available to play outfield Opening Day, if needed, John Lott of The Athletic reports.

Pearce is doing well in his rehab following September elbow surgery, and he should be ready to play the outfield on Opening Day if necessary. The elbow apparently doesn't inhibit his swing, and he is expected to take batting practice with the team Sunday. Although the Blue Jays seem optimistic now, the real challenge will be building his arm strength, which isn't supposed to be back to full strength until April. When he's back, he'll provide a nice boost at the plate against southpaws.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Diagnosed with strained calf
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Donaldson was diagnosed with a strained right calf Saturday.

He felt a small tweak in his calf earlier Saturday, and although the Blue Jays were never really worried, he was sent for a precautionary MRI. He dealt with a similar injury at the beginning of last year and didn't miss any time due to it, and it seems the same will be true this time around. He'll be treated and evaluated daily, but he's expected to be ready to start the season.

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Sent for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Donaldson was sent to have an MRI after he felt something in his calf Saturday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

He skipped his first workout Saturday after he felt "a small tweak" in his calf while running, prompting Toronto to send him for an MRI. We won't know how serious it is until the results are back, but general manager Ross Atkins felt positive about it. Donaldson strained his calf in the Blue Jays' fourth game last year, but didn't miss any games with the injury, playing in 155 total contests for the year.

Blue Jays' Francisco Liriano: Returning to successful form
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Liriano, under the guidance of Toronto pitching coach Pete Walker, has worked on adjusting his release point to match what he'd done during his most successful years in Pittsburgh, SB Nation reports.

Much of Liriano's late-season success last year in Toronto (after being acquired from Pittsburgh) was attributed to him reuniting with Russell Martin, but there may be a better explanation. After two strong seasons, the southpaw struggled early in 2016 before being traded north of the border. Liriano and Walker identified a mechanical flaw that had the veteran opening his front shoulder too much and leaving his throwing arm hanging out to dry. A correction was made to have Liriano keep his front side closed, and the 33-year-old ran off a stretch of four quality starts to end 2016. Liriano's 4.69 ERA and 8-13 record from 2016 may lead many owners to undervalue him in upcoming drafts, but there are indicators that would suggest he may be back to the dominant form he displayed in his first two seasons with Pittsburgh (2014-15).

Blue Jays' Josh Donaldson: Skips first workout
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Donaldson "felt something" in his calf and decided to skip the first workout of spring training Saturday, Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star reports.

Hopefully it's nothing too serious for Donaldson, but expect an update in due time. The three-time All-Star won the AL Silver Slugger for the second straight season in 2016 and should remain a top fantasy pick this year.
