Consider this a friendly reminder that the 10th annual 25 Man Roster Challenge is about to pop off. We have a few ballots already in and Gregor has made it real easy for you by dropping this column yesterday. Some interesting nuggets in there.
We have also been collecting some relevant roster type info and will roll it out in the interest of fair play and sportsmanship.

Updated look at #BlueJays' projected position players to open season...— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) January 29, 2019
C - Jansen, Maile
1B - Smoak
2B - Travis
3B - Drury
SS - Galvis
IF - Gurriel Jr.
LF - Hernandez / McKinney
CF - Pillar
RF - Grichuk
DH - Morales
That would leave room for 5 starters & an 8-man bullpen.
