Notes: Only the 12-2 Tigers have a better record than the Jays in Florida. … Bard allowed seven runs in 2.2 innings in his last appearance, causing much angst. … Toronto was off on Monday. … The Red Sox still have 53 players in camp, 51 with John Lackey and Bobby Jenks on the DL. Daisuke Matsuzaka, Rich Hill, Ryan Kalish and Carl Crawford are DL-bound, too. That still leaves 46, meaning plenty of cuts to be made.
