Jays eke out win over Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.—Even though he didn't get the win, Joe Biagini set one up for the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday.

Biagini and four relievers combined on a three-hitter, and Darwin Barney hit a tie-breaking homer in the eighth inning, as Toronto edged the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1.

The Jays took two-of-three from the Rays to win a road series for the first time this season (1-4-1).

Bautista is over his lower back stiffness

DUNEDIN, Fla.—Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista says the lower back stiffness that prevented him from playing for the Dominican Republic at the World Baseball Classic last weekend no longer is an issue.

Bautista was in the original lineup for yesterday's spring training game against Detroit. But with an off-day today, it was determined to have him play tomorrow instead.

Donaldson makes spring debut for Jays

DUNEDIN, Fla.—Toronto Blue Jays' star Josh Donaldson made his spring training debut yesterday, going 0-for-2 with a walk in his first game since injuring his right calf more than a month ago.

The 2015 AL MVP hurt himself Feb. 17 while running sprints.

He was the designated hitter in an 8-2 loss to Minnesota but is scheduled to play at his normal third base spot tomorrow.
