Someone explain what Tyler Wilson is doing here? "Tyler you have to face Bautista and Donaldson" "Not if I fly away I don't"

A three game win streak has us over .500. It would be nice to be a couple of games over .500.

Jesse Chavez is out tonight, back tightness or something of that sort, but Gibby is says Osuna would be available. Gibby has also told reporters that the Jays will spot in a 6th starter occasionally. It sounds like it would be Drew Hutchison, as they seem to have decided Gavin Floyd is a short man.

Of course, for Osuna to be needed, Dickey will have to have a good start. I think it is about time he has one.

Colabello is back in the lineup. I'd really like them to go with Smoak for a week and see what happens, but Chris has got to come out of his slump at some point, right? Beyond that, Thole bats ninth, in search of his second hit of the season, bumping Pillar back to 8th.
