Monday GameThread: Donaldson Plays

Today’s lineup and bits of Blue Jays new.

MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at Philadelphia Phillies Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Donaldson gets into a major league spring game for the first time since hurting his calf.

The bad news is: The game isn’t on TV or radio today.

Francisco Liriano gets the start. He hasn’t given up a spring run yet, 5 innings, 2 hits, 1 walk and 8 strikeouts.

The other good news is that Devon Travis will be playing second base in a minor league game today. The plan is for him to play in a minor league game again Wednesday and, all being well, his next start should be with the major league team, by the weekend. YAY.

And Kevin Pillar worked on bunting for a base hit in a minor league spring game yesterday. Not a bad idea.
