Blue Jays prospect Jordan Romano of Markham, Ont. watches with a bit of a grin as the Jays take on the Pirates in the first extended spring game of the year.  Romano, who had surgery on his left elbow exactly two weeks ago, is positive about his recovery.  “In 4 1/2 months I will be throwing soft toss and I will be ready to go next spring,” said Romano who was a 10th Round Pick in the 2014 June Draft.
