Ranked 6th among 78 catchers in pitch framing last year, based on ESPN metrics, but hasn't thrown out more than 22 percent of base-stealers the last three years.

When he was Tampa Bay's bench coach, Charlie Montoyo organized and called the Rays' various defensive shifts. He's bringing some of them — and the "opener" — to Toronto. "I've seen it work, so we're going to use all this stuff." We'll see how much. Oh, and as a shift proponent, he's all about keeping the defensive rules the way they are. "They're big-league players. They should make an adjustment; and I think they will."

Blue Jays first-year manager Charlie Montoyo on the biggest difference he's had since taking over in Toronto: "I had a lot of friends before. I have even more now." That quip brought a lot of laughter from reporters. One of his newest friends is Jays CF Kevin Pillar, who Montoyo called just after he took the job. Pillar was on his way to Japan at the time. Said Pillar during the brief mid-air phone conversation: "I can't wait to throw champagne on your head."
