LAKELAND, FLA. (AP) - Nate Robertson knows he’s at a career crossroads.

The left-hander was told by Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland that he would start the season in the bullpen, but before an 8-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday, Robertson said he’s ready for anything, even if that means leaving Detroit.

Robertson knows he could be the odd man out when Jeremy Bonderman and Joel Zumaya come off the disabled list in less than two weeks.

Scott Richmond, who has struggled for Toronto all spring, saw his ERA soar to 6.63 after allowing six earned runs in six innings.

Aaron Hill and Alex Rios homered for the Blue Jays and Travis Snider lifted his spring batting average to .421 with three hits.
