Spring training is upon us. Pitchers and catchers have reported for duty, and some regulars have gotten an early start to the season.
The boys of summer are back, and some of these Jays will look for bounce-back seasons, comeback seasons or to just plain continue hitting well and pitching well.
Generally, most positions have been set with the Jays prior to the start of the season.
Two of the three outfield spots have been locked up; meanwhile, the infield, catcher and designated hitter have all been accounted for. As for the pitching, the bullpen is revamped and looks to be set, minus maybe a battle for the last spot in the bullpen. The starters, well, at least by the looks of it, are set for the top four, with the last remaining spot likely to be decided upon in the last week or so of spring training.
In order to be a successful team, you need players to either come out of nowhere and be outstanding, or you need steady performances from your all-stars and regulars.
Here's a look at six Blue Jays who have often been forgotten about, but could have a say in whether the Jays make the playoffs this season.
