MLB Injury News:
The Toronto Blue Jays look poised to compete in the American League East in 2013. Part of their plans involve the return of Jose Bautista, and the good news he appears to be right on schedule. In fact, Bautista says his wrist is healed.
According to Chris Toman of MLB.com, Bautista has said his surgically-repaired left wrist is completely healed. Bautista injured the wrist during an at-bat in the second half of last season. He had to undergo surgery in September and missed the rest of the season. The Blue Jays faltered and finished second-to-last in the American League East while Bautista was helplessly watching from the dugout. This season should be different.
With the offseason moves the Blue Jays have made, they look like the early favorite to make the World Series out of the American League. Bautista, if he can return to form, can help them attain that goal. His performances over the last few seasons have made him one of the best hitters in the league.

New Toronto ace R.A. Dickey says he's thrilled to join a team that's ''all in'' to win the World Series and thankful the New York Mets did not meet his contract demands.
The Blue Jays formally introduced Dickey on Tuesday at Rogers Centre after acquiring the National League Cy Young Award winner from the Mets last month.
Dickey says the Mets helped him cultivate...
I’m not sure who we saw last year, but it sure-as-shootin’ wasn’t Brandon Morrow. Just 7.80 K/9 with a 2.96 BB/9? No, that’s not Morrow. That’s Ryan Dempster!
So what the heck happened? Well, he completely changed the way he approached batters. Prior to last year, Morrow pretty much did one of two things against opponents: rear back and try to throw his 94-mph four-seamer...
