Blue Jay Hunter Podcast Episode 5: The Biagini Starter/Reliever Struggle Begins

Pitchers and catchers have officially reported to Spring Training camp – batterymates get underway with their first official workout later today – and position players will be ready for action as of Friday.

We’ve officially made it over the hump, folks. Spring Training has finally arrived.

On this week’s edition of the Blue Jay Hunter podcast, I lead off with the Joe Biagini starter/reliever debate and how this is likely to be a prevailing storyline for the Blue Jays this Spring Training.


Other topics covered: Marcus Stroman’s arbitration case, the Blue Jays’ release of A.J. Jimenez and the surprising news about Russell Martin’s offseason knee surgery.
