DUNEDIN, FLA. - At the start of spring training, we posed 10 questions concerning the Blue Jays. Now, with just two weeks remaining until opening day on April 2, we look at what we know so far.

1. The Bullpen

On the plus side, the Jays look like they will open the season with a legit closer: Sergio Santos. Last season, he made just six appearances due to shoulder inflammation. Despite a minor setback that held him back for two weeks, Santos is back throwing in games and appears to be fine. The same cannot be said for Casey Janssen. He has yet to appear in a spring game and will likely remain in Dunedin at extended spring training for at least the first two series and then join the Jays in Detroit.The remainder of the bullpen should consist of LHP Darren Oliver, RHP Steve Delabar, RHP Esmil Rogers, LHP Aaron Loup, RHP Jeremy Jeffress and LHP Brett Cecil.
