... Podsednik will have a pretty good shot at winning a spot on the roster. The Jays could use a leadoff man and Podsednik fits the offensive criteria a bit better than Rajai Davis. They also could be looking at a time share at the designated hitter position where Podsednik could split duties with Travis Snider and Juan Rivera as the Jays look to avoid too much of a defensive disaster in left field. There's also the possibility that the Jays will be forced to use Jose Bautista at third base, although that seems like a last resort.
So there's room for Podsednik to earn a job. Assuming he can repeat last year's production, he could even play quite a bit, although one imagines they'd rather see Rivera and Snider win regular roles with Podsednik and Davis splitting time and providing doses of speed to a lineup that's short on it.
