We have two games today, Jays are playing the Pirates in Dunedin and the Tigers in Lakeland. Both games have some of our regulars. It surprises me that Donaldson, Solarte, Smoak and Pillar are making the trip to Lakeland.
But first there are bits of Jays news:
- Marcus Stroman will play catch tomorrow for the first time since the shoulder inflammation came up.
- Carlos Ramirez will also be back on the mound soon, he’s had a sore shoulder as well.
- You might note that, in the lineups below, Russel Martin will play third. Morales plays first base.
- And there is this:
On @FAN590 today, Mark Shapiro told @SNJeffBlair he’s ‘relatively confident’ #BlueJays can soon get go-ahead to start work on modernized Dunedin facility. “We’re about on the 1-yard line.” Apr 10 a key date. Hopeful construction by end of '18. Next spring, a ‘paradigm shift’— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) March 7, 2018
