Blue Jays not rushing to return to seven-man bullpen
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters he would like to take a longer look at his relievers before returning to a seven-man bullpen. With Miguel Castro, Brett Cecil, Roberto Osuna, Aaron Loup and Marco Estrada likely safe, Todd Redmond, Liam Hendriks and Colt Hynes appear to be on the bubble, per MLB.com.
"Usually this time of the year, early on, you don't need to give guys days off, so you can play a little short," Gibbons said. "Being an American League team, there's not a whole lot going on anyways. We want to see the production out of the 'pen too, see how they pitch."

|(4/14/15) The Blue Jays are carrying an extra reliever and using a seven-man bullpen to start the season, allowing John Gibbons to postpone a cut.
"Usually this time of the year, early on, you don't need to give (position) guys days off, so you can play a little short," Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "Being an American League team, there's not a whole lot going on anyways. We want to see the production out of the 'pen too, see how they pitch."
The Jays will likely be able to get away with the extra arms until outfielder Michael Saunders is ready to return from the disabled list. At that point, Liam Hendriks, Colt Hynes and Todd Redmond will likely be battling for two bullpen spots.
Blue Jays' Liam Hendriks beats out Ryan Goins for final roster spot
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/4/15) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons told reporters that he'll be using an eight-man bullpen to start the season. He awarded reliever Liam Hendriks the final spot on the roster and sent Ryan Goins to Triple-A Buffalo to start the season, according to Sportsnet.ca.
The right-hander Hendriks allowed four earned runs over 8 2/3 innings of work this spring. The team will go with Steve Tolleson as their emergency shortstop while Goins is in the minors. Goins batted .308 (16 for 52) with two homers and seven RBI in 26 spring games.
Blue Jays considering eight-man bullpen to begin season
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/30/15) Blue Jays manager Jon Gibbons is putting the finishing touches on the team's roster for the beginning of the season. Gibbons is considering going with eight men in the bullpen, which would give pitchers Todd Redmond and Liam Hendriks spots on the rosters, reports MLB.com.
"We're looking at possibly going with eight guys in the 'pen to start the season, when your regulars don't need as much rest," Gibbons said. "Of course, we've got an off-day on the second day of the year. That's something we're debating now, too."
Redmond and Hendriks would have to clear waivers if they were sent down to the minors. Redmond has posted a 1.80 ERA in seven appearances this spring with five strikeouts in 10 innings. Hendriks has a 3.52 ERA with nine strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings pitched this spring.
