Coming off a last-place finish, Morrow and Blue Jays hoping to bounce back this year

  • Print

DUNEDIN, Fla. - The Toronto Blue Jays fell far short of expectations last season, and starter Brandon Morrow blames himself and the rotation for many of the problems.

At the Blue Jays' first spring training workout on Monday, Morrow didn't mince words in describing the rotation's performance. Morrow says "we pitched like garbage."

Morrow went 2-3 in just 10 starts before a forearm injury in May forced him to miss the rest of the season.

Picked by many to be a World Series contender, Toronto stumbled to a 74-88 record and finished last in the AL East for the first time since 2004.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons says he expects former All-Star outfielders Jose Bautista and Melky Cabrera and third baseman Brett Lawrie to bounce back this year after missing significant time with injuries.
