NOTES: Closer B.J. Ryan has been sitting out this week due to a sore lower back, but it’s not considered too serious, according to pitching coach Brad Arnsberg. … RHP Pete Walker is taking a few days off to consider his future with the Jays. Toronto informed the reliever that there wasn’t going to be room for him in the bullpen with the Jays or with Triple-A Syracuse to start the season, but that Walker could begin with Double-A New Hampshire or Class A Dunedin. Walker is coming back from surgery on his throwing shoulder. … Arnsberg said the Blue Jays are leaning toward having reliever Brandon League start the season on the 15-day DL.
