In Blue Jays land, nothing is simple.

Take the rotation, please.

It seems there has been a shuffling of the deck, one that has bumped Brandon Morrow down to No. 5

Coming into spring training the rotation, thanks in part to GM Alex Anthopoulos’ broken promise of beefing it up in the off-season, was perceived to have one spot open, possibly two.

There was R.A. Dickey, lefty Mark Buehrle and Morrow followed by two members of Question Mark and the Mysterians.

Lefty J.A. Happ was thought to be the starter behind door No. 4, but then had some back issues to momentarily make it two open spots at the rotation’s end.

Happ went three innings this week in a minor-league game and his back was fine, which puts him atop the list for No. 4.
