Tonight Drew Hutchison makes his first MLB start since June 15, 2012. After a terrific spring training I'm pretty curious to see tonight's start.
Alex Cobb starts for the Rays. He had a good spring too, 15.2 innings, 13 hits, 4 earned, 2 walks and 18 strikeouts.
And there is this:
Mild inflammation for Reyes . Compared it to 2011 when he missed 29 games. #BlueJays— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) April 1, 2014
Oh, I sure hope he doesn't miss 29 games. 29 games with Diaz and Goins in the lineup...
Gibbons, on letting Reyes play in MTL: "We wouldn’t have put him out there if we didn’t feel confident" he was OK to play.— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) April 1, 2014
Gibbons on decision to call up Diaz: "best (available) shortstop we got," wants to put defence first.— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) April 1, 2014
Oh well. Offense is a secondary concern,
|TORONTO BLUE JAYS||TAMPA BAY RAYS|
|Cabrera, LF||Joyce, LF|
|Rasmus, CF||Myers, RF|
|Bautista, RF||Zobrist, 2B|
|Encarnacion, 1B||Longoria, 3B|
|Lind, DH||Loney, 1B|
|Navarro, C||Jennings, CF|
|Lawrie, 3B||Forsythe, DH|
|Goins, 2B||Hanigan, C|
|Diaz, SS||Escobar, SS|
Personally I'd have rather they moved Bautista and Encarnacion up a spot, but such is life.
Remember we have rules around here. Some reminders, don't talk about illegal streams, don't argue with the Mods and don't be terrible.
