25-year-old Chad Jenkins can say that he now has Major League experience under his belt. The Blue Jays called up the former first round pick (2009, 20th overall) last season and he made his debut on August 7th with 3 innings of scoreless relief against the Rays. Jenkins would finish the season with a 1-3 record over 13 games (3 starts), adding a 4.50 ERA and a 4.5 K/9 ratio. Jenkins will be headed for New Hampshire to start the season, where in 20 games with the Fisher Cats in 2012, he mustered a 5-9 record with a 4.96 ERA and a 4.5 K/9 ratio. It is possible that we could see Jenkins again in 2013, but he will have to improve on his middling strike-out numbers to be effective at the Major League level.
