Drabek drew positive reviews after his first bullpen session of the spring on Monday, MLB.com reports. "He was one guy that stood out for me today," Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said Monday. "His delivery looked sound, I love where his hands are right now. He located the ball down in the zone, his changeup was outstanding. He looks very confident and poised. Really repeated his delivery well. If he's a guy that's going to pound the strike zone, he's definitely in the mix. There's no question that's a Major League-caliber arm."
Morrow gained approximately 20 pounds this offseason, a development that seems to be sitting well with Blue Jays manager John Gibbons, the National Post reports. "He's put on a lot of weight, muscle," manager John Gibbons said Monday morning. "He looks strong. He looks like he's supposed to look. Last year he didn't look like that. He looks like a good, strong, starting, durable pitcher."
Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said that Romero could be a candidate for the fifth spot in the rotation, the National Post's John Lott reports. "If I went through the entire list, obviously he’s on it," Walker said of Romero. "He’s a guy that could definitely step into that fifth spot."
