Offseason addition Steve Pearce is set to make his spring training fielding debut for the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday at first base, manager John Gibbons said Friday.
Gibbons said it remains possible Pearce draws the opening day start for the team in left field.
Pearce has made 18 at-bats this spring as a designated hitter, registering five hits and two RBI.
He is rehabbing from forearm surgery on his right arm, which he underwent in September.
Pearce split most of his playing time between first base and left field with the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles last season.
