Nothing that happens or is said in spring training is cemented in concrete.

All clubs reserve the right to flip the switch, change their minds at the drop of a hat. It’s a fluid and muddled situation at the best of times.

Take who will be the fifth starter on the Blue Jays for example. Nobody has made the big step forward and pushed himself to the front of the line in a bid for the job.

If only the Jays had been able to land Ervin Santana, there would be no balls in the air right now, no muddied rotation picture.

So, one day Dustin McGowan is being sent to the bullpen by manager John Gibbons.
