He is a 19 year old pitcher from Worceseter, MA and lived not far from our GM JP Ricardi. He comes in at 5'7'' 155 and has a low 90sfb.
So far this season Tim has kept up his torrent pace in A+ in Dunedin.
14ip, 26k, 1.29era, and batters hitting 0.085 off him.

So far this season our Top Pick in '08 David Cooper has been off to a slow start.
To date he has been hitting 231/310/385 with 1hr and 3rbis.
With him being from Cali, I think its safe to say this is his first time playing in the cold weather, and should begin to tear it up in May once it gets warmer in NH.

Due to injuries,suckage by other pitchers in spring training, Ricky Romero went from a 1-100000 shot at the beginning of spring to a 1-3 shot with a few days left for him to impress the Jays.
In all reality, from what we've seen from Ricky last few years in the minors, he will be nothing more then a 4th starter at best. But he has progressed alot in the last two years in the minors. About half way last year he suddenly clicked in AA New Hampshire, and did well in the last few weeks of the minor league season in Syracuse. He still has a big tag on his forehead since the Jays picked him 6th overall in 2005, hoping he would fast track through the minors in a year or two coming to Toronto.
He will get another start this weekend likely to impress the Jays. Also, if Scott Richmond sucks again like his last outing, he might be given the 5th spot pretty much by default.

I saw a picture from the first few days of spring training, and I saw the odd pitching motion of Brett.
You can see in this picture hes throwing his breaking ball(curve probably, but maybe slider, lol knuckle slider), and its pretty obvious. Most good hitters in the majors would pick up on this pitching motion and be aware of what pitch is coming.
My two cents is that Brett is Vegas to work on this motion and make it less revealing. Some point in May or June he should get a call up to the Jays.

Since the Jays worst position seems to be SS, I say we give Brad some repetition's at SS in NH to get him adjusted to that position. I asked Brad on facebook if he has played SS at all in college/minors, and he said no, that he has only played 2b/3b in the past few years.
This type of move could actually work, since Justin Jackson projects to be ready in 2-3 years, with average bat at best, with above average defense. I don't know too much about Brad's defense, but I'd think he has an above average bat for middle infielder.
If Brad defense is average or better, he could slip into the Jays SS some point mid this season due to our gaping hole in this spot.
