Of course, Drew Hutchison won’t start opening day this year, and should Edwin Encarnacion recover from his oblique issue in time for the Blue Jays’ first regular season game, the 33-year-old slugger would likely replace Justin Smoak.
Aside from those probable changes, the Blue Jays are fielding their most potent batting order of the spring, the same unit that led the American League in runs, home runs and RBIs in 2015.
The Blue Jays kick off the 2016 season against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg on April 3.
