It was a bit of an old boys reunion Tuesday as the Blue Jays arrived at the clubhouse for the series opener against Tampa Bay. Jesse Carlson, Dustin McGowan and Aaron Hill all made the short trip from Dunedin to visit.

Only Hill is expected to be seen in a Jays uniform soon. "Unless there's any setbacks I'll fly in (to Toronto) Sunday and be ready," said Hill, who will play in three games with class-A Dunedin, plus an extended spring training game.

Hill led the club with six stolen bases when he went down with a hamstring injury. He said he's not going to change his aggressive play. But manager John Farrell notes they may have to temper that enthusiasm to keep him off the disabled list.
