TORONTO — I spoke with Vernon Wells earlier tonight about the Mitchell Report and he had this to say in regards to players being named, including Toronto’s Gregg Zaun and Troy Glaus:
"I’m in no place to judge what anybody else has done. They’re grown men and they make their own decisions. When you do things that are illegal, people are going to find out about it. Obviously, those guys have to deal with the repercussions of what happens after this report is out.
"People have probably done a lot worse things than doing steroids," he added. "I’m not going to view them any differently. [Zaun and Glaus] are both my teammates and we’re all playing for one common goal, to win. Whatever choices they made in the past, that’s on them."
Wells also talked some about his offseason rehab. I may write something up on that later. He’s scheduled to start swinging a bat at about 50-percent strength next week and expects to be ready to go this spring. So, good news on that front.
Looks like Zaun and Glaus are declining comment for now. Jays president and CEO Paul Godfrey has a conference call in a few minutes. Stay tuned for more…
