News
Blue Jays starting pitcher Daniel Norris strengthened his case for a spot in the team's rotation with another strong outing during Thursday's 5-2 win against the Orioles. Norris (2-0) allowed one run on three hits and no walks, while striking out seven in six innings.

Norris lowered his spring ERA to 2.41 in five starts. He has 21 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings.

The left-hander debuted a new changeup Wednesday, per MLB.com. He has been working with pitching coach Pete Walker on a new twist to an pitch that has been in his repertoire.

"My whole career, I've thrown a cut change and it's played really well," Norris said. "But we sat down and talked this week and they were like, 'There's nothing wrong with it. It's just that you've got to have something that kind of goes the other way.'

"So we kind of messed around with something. They said, 'It's up to you if you want to try it.' I was like, 'Yeah. If it's going to make me better, I'll do it, sure.' And it worked today."

Norris said he will continue to throw both changeups, but the new version will be used more against right-handed batters. Norris struck out Adam Jones twice Wednesday with his new changeup.

"You really don't want that one cutting into those righties," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of using a different changeup. "That can be dangerous. If you get it to fade away like it did today, that's huge."

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Monday trading for Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro is not a possibility because the team can't afford to add Navarro's salary to the payroll, per MLB.com. Navarro, who has asked to be traded, is set to make $5 million in 2015.

Sanchez, who struck out two, didn't allow a hit until there was one out in the fourth inning. He retired 10 of the first 11 batters he faced, allowing just a walk in that span.

Sanchez lowered his ERA to 3.93. He has nine strikeouts through five starts (18 1/3 innings).

While the Blue Jays have yet to make an announcement, Devon Travis will win the starting job at second base over Ryan Goins and Steve Tolleson, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

He is considered Toronto's fifth-best prospect by Baseball America. Travis has a career .323/.388/.487/.876 slash line over three seasons in the minors.

News
The Blue Jays announced Tuesday they optioned reliever Steve Delabar to minor-league camp. Delabar -- who had a 3.86 ERA, one save, nine strikeouts and one walk in seven spring innings -- said he was shocked by the move, per the National Post.

"They told me that some other guys have stepped up. I’m assuming it’s some of the younger guys," he said.

Manager John Gibbons didn't hold back in his assessment of Delabar's spring performance.

"I’m glad he’s pissed off," Gibbons said. "He should be pissed off. Why wouldn’t he be? We’re all pissed off. We wanted him on the team.

"We need a multiple-inning guy. He’s basically right now a one-inning pitcher. That’s what it came down to."

Delabar's demotion could pave the way for Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro to make the Opening Day roster. Both players have been impressive in camp. Castro has tossed nine scoreless innings, while striking out eight and not issuing a walk. Osuna also hasn't allowed a run in 9 2/3 innings, while striking out eight and walking two.

Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada had his scheduled start pushed back for a second time Tuesday due to an ankle injury, MLB.com reports.

Estrada was initially scheduled to pitch Sunday but was scratched due to a sore ankle he tweaked earlier in the week. He is now expected to start Saturday's game and could also be used in relief Thursday after the ankle has had more time to heal.

"It's still barking a bit," manager John Gibbons said.

Estrada is in the mix for a rotation spot this spring but will likely begin the season in the bullpen. He's given up eight earned runs on 7 2/3 innings this spring.
