The younger remaining hander informed us at the time that he did not assume to have a place in the starting up rotation handed to him.

“I’m just heading to go out there and do what I can do,” Borucki said. “Whatever takes place, takes place. That’s for them to make a decision and for me to make the decision as tricky as attainable.
“Just preserve pitching my video game and heading out there and just pitching effectively.”
Borucki authorized two hits in his most recent effort, the to start with Jays starter to go three innings this spring training. Offensively, the Jays were led by a three-operate homer from Justin Smoak in the to start with inning and a solo shot from Lourdes Gurriel Jr. in the fourth.
