Going into this season, no position on the Toronto Blue Jays depth chart has been questioned more than the starting rotation.
The team wasn’t able to secure any of the big-name free agent starters putting pressure on the team to figure out other methods to bolster the rotation. They made it a priority to bring back Robbie Ray on a one-year deal, and hoping for bounce-back performances from Steven Matz (acquired from the Mets) and Tanner Roark.
The remainder of the rotation remains a mystery, however, and with the opportunity comes a chance for younger arms to showcase their potential. This has been especially true for some of the players the Blue Jays added the past few years.
With two weeks until the season begins, Toronto will need to decide the best course of action with the starting five. Nate Pearson’s groin injury will open up a spot for a player that might not have been on the radar to get a shot on the big league roster.
Here is a look at the ones who have impressed so far in Spring Training.
