There is much to be learned this spring about the complexion of the Blue Jays bullpen. It goes well beyond the 12-15 candidates general manager Alex Anthopoulos has assembled to compete for seven relief roles.

See, for all the many and varied improvements the GM has made to the team, there remains that sliver of doubt at the back-end of the bullpen. Casey Janssen did an outstanding job in 2012, coming late to the role after Sergio Santos’ shoulder went bad coming out of spring training and after Francisco Cordero was all kinds of awful as Santos’ replacement.
