Rzep was a late addition to the roster. At 25 years of age, he really is to old for this league. It was reported that the extra work "will assist in preparing him for a six-month season in 2011, whether he is starting or pitching in relief".

In the same report it mentions Hech has a tight hamstring and will miss a few games. He has yet to play.

Consequently Jose Iglesias, the Red Sox Cuban born prospect and childhood buddy/teammate of Hechavarria, has been taking a lot of reps at SS.

Mariner 2B prospect and number 2 overall pick in the 2009 Amateur draft, Dustin Ackley, has suffered a sprained left ring finger and will be back soon or in the next couple of weeks depending on who you ask.

Canadian born Jays prospect Adam Loewen has been a busy guy this offseason already. He played for Team Canada in the Pan Am qualifier in Puerto Rico. Finding boxscores for the tournament are pretty much impossible but I was able to dig this up.

From the looks of it Eric Thames and Mike McDade are hitting 4 and 5 in the order. That's good news.


Hech has been shut down after only 2 games and 4 at bats. Hammy issue. They scare me.

But wait, there's more.

  1. good stuff. Baseball doesn't rest.

  2. What are the Jays going to do with Loewen? He improved a lot in 2009 from his 2008 season and he is only 26 so he still has some time.

  3. @Anon,
    I was gonna save this for the round up but since you asked:


    He's back for 2011. You gotta figure if he doesn't start the year in Vegas, then he should get there at some point.
