DUNEDIN, Fla. – The Toronto Blue Jays are being cautious with Ryan Borucki to start spring training after the left-hander complained of elbow tightness in his throwing arm earlier this week.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Friday at camp that Borucki experienced the tightness after throwing off a mound a couple days ago.

“Well he’s got a history of course of problems so you always get concerned a little bit,” Montoyo said. “But from what I hear, we’re just going to be cautious right now.

“He’s been working hard and if he feels like he’s tight. Right now we’re just going to be cautious, that’s all.”

General manager Ross Atkins said Borucki underwent an MRI that revealed “it’s just tightness.”

Borucki dealt with elbow problems all of last year, beginning at spring training, and made just two starts in the majors in 2019.
