Player Notes
Brett Cecil made his spring debut with a perfect inning Thursday against the Phillies.

Advice: Cecil was already named Toronto's closer despite missing all month with a sore shoulder. The Jays never seemed all that concerned about the shoulder, but it does make him an even riskier fantasy pick than he'd already be as an unestablished closer on a team that has always been quick to make changes.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Sunday that Brett Cecil will be the team's closer to start the year.

Advice: It was the expected choice, but the confirmation gives fantasy owners some appreciated clarity. The decision also affects Aaron Sanchez, who will now certainly move forward as a starter. Cecil, a lefty, had a 2.70 ERA and 76/27 K/BB ratio over 53 1/3 innings for the Jays last season.

Brett Cecil (shoulder) is scheduled to pitch the first inning of a minor league game on Saturday.

Advice: If all goes well, he will repeat the process on Tuesday before hopefully returning to Grapefruit League action. The veteran left-hander is slated to open the season as the Blue Jays closer, making him relevant in all mixed leagues.
