The Toronto Blue Jays have formally announced that utility infielder Munenori Kawasaki was unsuccessful in making the Jays squad out of spring training and optioned to the minors. The demotion could be short-lived depending in the severity of the injury to Jose Reyes. Regardless here is some spring training video evidence of why Kawasaki should be the unanimous choice over veteran Maicer Izturis.

    I admire the way Kawasaki plays the game. Like it is still fun and all out.
    However, a .220 hitter is always borderline. I am still surprised the Jays didn’t pick up Stephen Drew to protect against Reyes’ fragility,the second base question marks regarding Goins ability to hit. He was good enough for the world series champs last year, surely he is good enough to be a back up on the Jays.
    Hope Morrow comes around. He also seems fragile and without him they are definitely thin on starting pitching.
