Thanks to the kindness of a friend, I was able to get my hands on a copy of the Blue Jays’ 2017 Minor League Spring Training roster. It’s interesting to note that as of today, it’s not divided into work groups as the Phillies do. I’ll just leave this here for you…
Yesterday, Spring Training was shortened by an afternoon golf outing that the Phillies were holding. Today, it has been raining off and on all day. So what to do? A preview of tomorrow’s game against the University of Tampa!
Baseball Ross and I put together a video of photos and commentary on the line up for tomorrow’s game. You can see the video HERE.
It was another day of drills and batting practice. It was also a day of a little bit of levity.
During the pop-up drill, Freddy Galvis came from third base all the way in to the first base line, just in front of the plate…but when he got there, he missed the ball. Not to let him off easy, Luis Garcia who had “pitched” and was backing up Galvis, threw his glove to the ground before throwing his hands in the air and kicking his glove across the grass. He did it with the over-dramatic flair, all the while, he was pretending to be angry. It was hilarious! (There’s photos of this in the vlog for today.)
There’s a ton of pictures including Odubel Hererra, Mickey Moniak, Aaron Brown, Andres Blanco, Nick Pavetta, Alberto Tirado, Elniery Garcia, Cole Stobbe, Jorge Alfaro, Roman Quinn, Ben Lively, Jeremy Hellickson and Dylan Cozens. You can see the video HERE.
This is where spring training gets hard to blog about. The intra-squad games have yet to start and basically, you’re watching the same players do the same drills as the last few days. There were a few highlights, however.
The best thing was Odubel Hererra motioning for me to take a picture then giving me the thumbs up sign…as seen above.
Baseball Ross and I have pictures and video of today’s activities and you can watch it HERE. If you like the video, be sure to click subscribe so you will be notified when we post new videos. We hope to post new video every day of spring training.
It’s day 3 of spring training and the last day of only pitchers and catchers. Tomorrow position players report.
Baseball Ross and I put together a video outlining today’s activities. We have pictures and video of Brad Lidge, Elniery Garcia, Alberto Tirado, Jerad Eickhoff, Tommy Joseph, Roman Quinn, Drew Anderson, Pedro Beato, Mark Appel, Victor Arano, Aaron Nola, Joely Rodriguez and more.
