Mychal Givens trailed starter Tom Eshelman in Wednesday's exhibition against the Blue Jays, serving up a two-run homer to Randal Grichuk. He also walked one and struck out one in the outing.
Givens continues his rough spring, now sporting a 10.38 ERA. Manager Brandon Hyde believes that there is competition for the closer's job, and Givens is not helping matters. For what it is worth, Hunter Harvey also had a poor outing Wednesday, giving up a two-run homer as well. Continue to monitor this fluid situation, but it would be wise to look for saves elsewhere.
