Jays could move Ryan Goins this spring. Out of options & doesn't seem to have a spot. Not an accident he's played all 3 IF positions today

Francisco Liriano done for the day. Whiffed 10 of the 18 he faced. Last 6 outs were Ks. So he has an 18/2 K-BB ratio thru 9.2 IP this spring. Has 3 swing-and-miss pitches locked in. A guy to watch!

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

Francisco Liriano still cruising thru a dominating spring. Up to 8 Ks thru 4 IP today. For the spring: 9 IP, 16 K, 4 H, 0 runs. That'll work
