Little bits of Blue Jays news.
- Brett Lawrie is starting a rehab assignment in Dunedin tomorrow. If I was a betting man I'd bet he'll be back right after the All-Star break, all going well.
- Sergio Santos is starting rehab right away too. He'll pitch in Dunedin, July 1st, 4th and 7th, then pitch in Buffalo. He's hoping to return soon after the All-Star break too. Santos is also doing the weighted ball thing.
And John Gibbons has been dropping hints about who will or will not be dropped to make room for Reyes:
Gibbons says Jays have "pretty good idea" who will be dropped to make room for Reyes. Wagner? "He's got nothing to worry about."— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) June 25, 2013
Gibbons confirmed Lawrie starting rehab assigment, could be ready to rejoin #Bluejays in 2 wks. Also thinks Kawasaki would be fine at 2B.— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness590) June 25, 2013
Gibbons says move will come after tonight's game. Also said he likes four LHPs in the pen. Refuses to say more.— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) June 25, 2013
I don't know what it all means, other than Gibby likes playing with the press.
I'm tired of guessing. We'll find out tonight.
