Spring Threat: Wild Card Game References, Blue Jays @ Orioles

Ubaldo Jimenez starting the game? Why not Zach Britton?! Heeeyyyyy00000!!! (How long can I keep using awful jokes like this? Please can the season just start already so there can be new things to talk about?)

Yesterday, Arden Zwelling told us that both Josh Donaldson and Devon Travis were progressing nicely with their injuries, and are on track to be ready to play for the Blue Jays on opening day. And today, Arden is here with more good news, saying that Jose Bautista’s still back/neck sort of injury that kept him out of the Dominican’s last game of the World Baseball Classic isn’t serious, and that he’ll be back with the Jays tomorrow. Great!
