Blue Jays' Joe Biagini: Spot in rotation in doubt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biagini could wind up heading back to the bullpen in 2018 following the team's acquisition of southpaw Jaime Garcia on Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Biagini was expected to have the inside track on the final spot in the Blue Jays' rotation heading into spring camp but now he is likely the odd man out as Garcia is set to grab that spot. In addition, manager John Gibbons has always preferred Biagini in the bullpen, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com which may wind up tipped the scales in an unfavorable direction for the 27-year-old. Expect this to be a fluid situation throughout camp, but due to Biagini's lack of success in the rotation during his brief opportunities last year, it would appear as though he will be utilized as a middle-relief man in 2018.

Blue Jays' Jaime Garcia: Signs with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garcia signed a one-year, $8 million contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday.

The deal also includes a club option for 2019. Garcia is expected to slot in as the team's No. 5 starter, leaving Joe Biagini -- who was projected to fill out Toronto's final rotation spot -- in a bit of a limbo. The 31-year-old Garcia split time between the Braves, Twins and Yankees last season, compiling a serviceable 4.41 ERA across 27 starts (157 innings).

Blue Jays' Marcus Stroman: Loses arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman announced on his personal Twitter account that he lost his arbitration hearing.

As a result of this decision, the right-hander will make $6.5 million rather than the $6.9 million figure that he requested. Ultimately, it doesn't make much of a difference from a fantasy perspective, but it could "fuel the fire" as Stroman put it in his Tweet. He'll look to build off a stellar 2017 campaign in which he posted a 3.09 ERA and a 164:62 K:BB in 33 starts.

Blue Jays' Devon Travis: Will be eased into spring camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Travis will take it easy at the beginning of spring camp after undergoing knee surgery last June, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

According to manager John Gibbons, Travis has been moving around pretty well but the team will still elect to ease him into spring training rather than cause any sort of setback. Gibbons also stated that the club will "keep an eye on him" and could potentially "get him on a program where he plays X number of days per week just to get him rested" once the regular season begins. Due to his injury history, it would be best to monitor Travis throughout the spring.

Blue Jays' Troy Tulowitzki: Heel surgery not deemed necessary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tulowitzki won't require surgery on his right heel after the Blue Jays shut him down Wednesday when he aggravated a chronic bone spur, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The veteran shortstop experienced discomfort in his heel after doing conditioning work to strengthen the sprained ankle on the same foot, an injury that had resulted in him missing the final two months of last season. Rather than having Tulowitzki go under the knife and embark on another arduous rehab, the Blue Jays will instead act conservatively with the 33-year-old's workload throughout the spring with the goal of getting him back to full health for Opening Day. In recognition of Tulowitzki's poor durability and the likelihood that he'll miss time due to injury at some point this season, the Blue Jays acquired Aledmys Diaz from the Cardinals and Yangervis Solarte from the Padres over the winter to provide insurance up the middle.
