So that wasn’t a fun debut for a couple of new Blue Jays Sams.
Sam Gaviglio pitched an inning, gave up 3 hits, 2 earned, 1 walk and 2 strikeout, in his first appearance after being picked up in trade.
Sam Moll was only able to get one out (though there was an error and a ball lost in the sun that cost him), giving up 4 hits, 6 runs, 5 earned, 2 walks, with 1 home run.
I don’t think we’ll be seeing either in Toronto unless things go really bad this season.
- Aaron Loup: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 earned, 1 walk, 1 k. 2.70 ERA. Gave up an RBI double to a RHB who he would have, likely, pitched around during the season to face the LHB coming up next.
- Chris Rowley: 3 innings, 1 hit (a Didi Gregorius homer), 2 earned, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts. Ignoring the homer, it was a very good appearance.
- Carlos Ramirez: 1 inning, 2 hits, 2 earned, 1 home run (Giancarlo Stanton took him very deep). It was his first appearance in a long while, but looks like he is healthy again.
- Ty Tice: 0.2, 1 walk, 1 k. First Jay pitcher not to give up a run.
- Murphy Smith: 1 inning, 1 hit, 2 strikeouts.
Offensively, it was the Yangervis Solarte show, he went 4 for 4, with a double. He’s hitting .208 now.
- Curtis Granderson: 1 for 4, double, 2 k. .300.
- Teoscar Hernandez: 0 for 1. .327.
- Justin Smoak: 0 for 4, k. .200.
- Randal Grichuk: 1 for 3, homer, walk. .286.
- Kendrys Morales: 2 for 4. .231.
- Kevin Pillar: 2 for 4, homer. .432. He also lost a fly in the sun.
- Danny Espinosa: 1 for 4, k. .239.
- Aledmys Diaz: 1 for 3. .234.
- Gift Ngoepe: 0 for 1. .175.
- Reese McGuire: 1 for 4. .250.
Jays are now 13-16.
Tomorrow the Jays host the Pirates. The game isn’t on MLB.TV. After that, two games in Montreal, then a day off and then REAL BASEBALL.
