Daniel Norris is about to enjoy Christmas in March. He's already happy with the way he has been able to use his gift.
Blue Jays manager plans to announce his starting rotation on Tuesday morning. It would be a shocker if Norris is not on the list

Your questions answered: Why Colt Hynes is named Colt and why he looks like a good bet to win a bullpen job with the Blue Jays.
He is named after a 1980s TV character. His spring ERA is 0.00. Except for a technicality, he would be a rookie — at age 29

You could forgive Marco Estrada if he felt rusty. But he did OK in his return from a minor ankle injury. For the first time this spring, however, two young pitching prospects took their lumps in a Blue Jays loss.
Estrada started for the first time in two weeks after twisting his ankle during a Blue Jays fielding drill

John Gibbons refuses to talk in specifics about last year's clubhouse mood, but he says he has seen a big change – for the better – this spring.
Invoking Mark McGwire’s visit to the U.S. Senate, Gibbons said he did not wish to revisit the past

Steve Delabar expected to be a key member of the Blue Jays' bullpen. Suddenly, he was told, he is redundant.
Steve Delabar is back in the minors because the Toronto Blue Jays apparently need him to be something he’s not

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons tossed out a few broad hints about the makeup of his opening-day roster.
Two catchers, not three. Eight relievers, not seven, to open the season. Justin Smoak as the backup first baseman

The Blue Jays are rolling the dice with a major youth movement. Their staff is focused on making sure the kids don't lose confidence when the inevitable adversity strikes.
Gibbons admits the club is rolling the dice with youth. He knows that decision could determine whether he keeps his job

Michael Saunders has been getting at-bats, but when he hits the ball, he doesn't run. That, he hopes, will start to change soon.
On Saturday he was scheduled to play in his fourth minor-league game. He takes his cuts but doesn’t run the bases

They came from humble beginnings in the Dominican Republic and Mexico. Miguel Castro and Roberto Osuna are only 20 years old, but look at them now. 
One used his bonus money to pay for surgeries his parents couldn’t afford. The other used his to buy a house for his mother

A Blue Jays' notebook, featuring Aaron Sanchez's 3-2 curveball, Steve Tolleson's homer binge and Brett Cecil's return. (And more stuff too.)
During 5 1/3 strong innings, Blue Jays right-hander Aaron Sanchez generated 10 ground-ball outs against the Phillies

Much is known about the lifestyle and pitching prowess of the Blue Jays' Daniel Norris. In a game against the Baltimore Orioles, he gave folks something new to talk about.
Blue Jays rookie Daniel Norris – van dweller, surfer dude, bearded wonder – is a legend before his time among many baseball fans
