TORONTO — With star outfielder George Springer rehabbing from a Grade 2 strain to his left oblique, the Blue Jays have told Jonathan Davis he’s cracked the Opening Day roster.

For now, the Blue Jays haven’t made a final decision on whether Springer will open the season on the injured list, with manager Charlie Montoyo instead saying that Davis has earned this opportunity with a strong spring.

He’s right. Davis has hit .294 with an .841 OPS in the Grapefruit League and is one of the best defensive outfielders in the organization, with speed to burn, but with Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Teoscar Hernández and Randal Grichuk already on the roster, this clearly raises the question of whether Springer will be ready for Opening Day on April 1 against the Yankees in New York.

“We’re still going day to day,” Montoyo said of Springer. “He hit off the tee today, but again, we have to see how he feels tomorrow. It’s still day to day with him.”

Following the theme of the past week for the Blue Jays, the injury news doesn’t stop there. Left-hander Robbie Ray, who bruised his left elbow earlier in the week after falling down some stairs, will miss at least his first start of the regular season. The early diagnosis was simply a “bruise,” so while this shouldn’t be a long-term issue, it further stretches Toronto’s pitching depth.

“There are still guys competing for those spots,” Montoyo said. “We’ve still got Trent Thornton, we’ve still got T.J. Zeuch, we’ve still got Anthony Kay. We’ve got guys competing now that we know Robbie’s not going to make that start.”
