Blue Jays: Resist the temptation to make Trent Thornton a reliever

A few days ago it looked like the Blue Jays had the bullpen more or less figured out, with the exception of the last spot, and whether or not they keep Elvis Luciano as a potential 8th receiver as well. Now that the injury bug has bitten the bullpen in a big way, things are a lot less clear.

On Thursday the Blue Jays announced that both John Axford and Ryan Tepera are dealing with elbow issues, and neither will be ready to begin the season with the big league club.
