Monday's Blue Jays Minor League Notebook spotlights, Casey Janssen, Jason Phillips, Kurt Isenberg, Ryan Patterson, Joey Metropoulos, Chris Gutierrez, Sean Shoffit, Chi-Hung Cheng, and much more.
The Toronto Blue Jays have outrighted catcher Jason Phillips to Triple-A Syracuse, and also on Wednesday RHP Vince Perkins was claimed by the Milwaukee Brewers off waivers.
Catcher Jason Phillips made his first start as a Blue Jay an impressive
one Thursday night, but the question left unanswered was whether it was also
his last start.
In today's spring training notes we focus in on Josh Towers' outstanding outing on Thursday. In other news Jason Phillips continues to swing a hot bat, Justin Speier was back on the mound, Reed Johnson took a step toward getting back on the field, and more players were reassigned to minor league camp.
Jason Phillips agreed on Tuesday to a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays and will be invited to Spring Training to compete for a catching spot on the club.
