Toronto Blue Jays reliever Frank Francisco has been scratched from a minor-league appearance on Sunday because of ongoing discomfort in his right pectoral muscle.

Toronto manager John Farrell said Saturday that the right-hander still felt some felt discomfort during a bullpen session. Farrell is hopeful that Francisco will be ready for opening day.

Octavio Dotel, who was out with a hamstring injury, had a mound session. His status will be re-evaluated on Sunday.
