SAN DIEGO, California - Edwin Encarnacion was at third base on Friday night as the Blue Jays opened a three-game series against the Padres. With the absence of Brett Lawrie, on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle, and with the designated hitter spot out of play under National League rules, Encarnacions move to third opens up first base for Adam Lind. Look for a similar lineup on Sunday against the Padres and on Tuesday in San Francisco, when the Jays are scheduled to face right-handed starters. The Giants have yet to determine who will pitch on Wednesday. "I think its going to be fine," said third base coach Luis Rivera, who doubles as the clubs infield instructor. "He takes ground balls at first base every day. Its a different angle but hes taking ground balls is the thing. He took ground balls (Thursday,) he took about 30 ground balls, maybe a little bit more than that. He threw to first base, he felt comfortable, he was moving his feet well like hes doing at first base and he made all good throws to first. So thats a good thing." Encarnacion was a third baseman when he began his major league career with the Cincinnati Reds. Since his trade to Toronto, for Scott Rolen on July 31, 2009, Encarnacion has been the Jays third baseman in 174 games. It was a struggle, both with the glove and the throw across the diamond. Encarnacions made 34 errors playing third in Toronto. At his low point, in 2010, Encarnacion was designated for assignment with the prevailing belief that his struggles in the field were affecting his hitting. It was a perfect storm. These are different times. "Hes way more confident now than he used to be," said Rivera. "He doesnt have to worry about being sent down or anything else that was going on at that time. He is very comfortable now, hes doing a great job, hes swinging the bat, hes catching the ball at first base so his confidence is high and he knows hes not going to be staying there. Its just going to be a few days and hes comfortable with that, hes fine with that, whatever the team needs hes going to do it for us." The early returns on Friday night were positive. With one out in the first, Padres right fielder Chris Denorfia laid a down a bunt toward third. Encarnacion charged, barehanded the ball and made the off-balance throw to first. In the fourth, Encarnacion hit his club-leading 15th home run. MORROW UNCERTAIN FOR SUNDAY Brandon Morrows forearm strain is threatening to keep him out of his next scheduled start, Sunday against the Padres. "Morrow is up in the air for Sunday," said manager John Gibbons. "Hes feeling a little bit better but, two days away, I dont know. I havent had a chance to talk to the trainers and the pitching coach just yet but its dicey." Morrow went out to play long toss on Friday afternoon but shut down the session early. The 28-year-old removed himself from Tuesdays game against the Braves after only two innings, complaining of soreness in his forearm. On Wednesday, Morrow told TSN.ca he would argue his case to make Sundays start.

While New Zealand have spent the last two weeks practising patience in anticipation of slow, low conditions in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe cannot wait to get started. They have waited 20 months to play a Test match since visiting Bangladesh at the end of 2014. They have not hosted a Test in almost two years and have not held one in Bulawayo in five. To say they are eager would be an understatement.My boys are ready, Makhaya Ntini, Zimbabwes interim head coach said. I say that because they have been waiting for too long to play Test cricket. This country is a Test country and we dont have enough of those. They have been waiting for too long to show how hungry they are.In preparation, Zimbabwes A side had two matches against South Africa A, the hosts lost the second one, and one against the touring New Zealanders, who also defeated them. Their on-field losses were magnified by the personnel problems due to injuries, which have effectively left an inexperienced attack.Tinashe Panyangara and Tendai Chataras injuries have left Zimbabwes squad with four other quicks who have two Tests between them. Njabulo Ncubes came five years ago, against New Zealand, and Donald Tiripanos against South Africa in August 2014. Taurai Muzarabani and Michael Chinouya are uncapped but have played 61 and 65 first-class matches respectively.Despite the new faces in his pace pack, Ntini insisted he was not nervous about how they will fare against batsmen like Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor. Me? No, I am not nervous. Its them that are going on the field. For me, its just to motivate them, to show them the way and make them believe. If they get selected, it is a very good chance to show what they are capable of, Ntini said. We are bringing new things in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe has been one of the countries that has been neglected for quite some time. If they get an opportunity, they will utilise it to their full potential.Among the new things is the freedom to express themselves, something Zimbabwean players have previously steered away from as former coach Alan Butcher wrote in his book The Good Murungu, an account of his time in charge. Ntinis boisterous personality, and famously booming voice, has encouraged everyone around him to follow suit, tell some jokes and just generally have a little more fun.Its been good for us to have Makhaya. We were set in our ways for a long time where we didnt express ourselves. Makhaya, with the way he is, has brought out a few characters in the team which can only be good for us, Graeme Cremer, Zimbabwes newly appointed captain said.Cremer is hopeful that new attitudes will mean his team can make the mental shifts they nneed to compete in the longest format on a surface that will test the batsmen initially.dddddddddddd Were a bit short on game time and we need to make a mindset change, from the white ball to the red ball, he said. Bulawayo will be a good batting wicket. Once you get in, you can score a lot of runs but it also a wicket where sometimes it is hard to get in. That first 18 balls youre not sure on the wicket, because it is probably a bit slower than normal.Cremers opposite number Williamson will also lead his team out for the first time but has not thought a huge amount about the feelings that may stir up. Instead, Williamson has been consumed by tactical preparation for unfamiliar conditions. conditions. His focus has been on finding different ways to be aggressive on a surface that could lend itself to letting the game drift.There may not be a huge amount of pace and bounce, so the word attacking [could mean something different]. We would like to attack and well certainly try to with bat and ball but at the same time, patience, and how you look to skin it, is the challenge, Williamson said. How attacking looks on some of these surfaces, it may not be four slips and two gullies because there might be no point in doing that. It might be looking at how you want to target different areas, where you want to limit scoring. And then if you have an opportunity and you take that wicket, certainly you go all out and try and get another couple. But we know it doesnt happen too quickly on these sorts of surfaces.For Zimbabwe, nothing has happened too quickly in Test-cricket terms for several years. They have long periods of inaction between short series and there is not much they can do to change that although Ntini does have a vision for how they can ensure higher-profile games in other formats. Every player hates being part of a country that needs to qualify for a bigger stage. My vision is that between now and 2019, Zimbabwe are not in a position to play qualifiers before they play in the bigger set-up, he said.Ntini was referring to Zimbabwes failure to quality for the main draw of the last World T20 tournaments, and their low ODI ranking which ruled them out of the Champions Trophy. However, should a two-division Test league come to pass, they will also find themselves in the bottom tier and Ntini wants to put them in a position to challenge that, something he knows will take more time than a two-match series against New Zealand. So for now, he just wants them to enjoy something they have waited a long time for.
