Another day, another roster move:

Heading into a national league park, it makes sense the Jays would opt for an extra position player to pinch hit. Since being optioned down last time, Pompey has collected 6 hits in 6 games including 3 homers, a double and a walk. He has an .810 OPS in AAA.

Jaime Garcia will also need a roster spot tomorrow. I expect this will largely be dependent on how well Sam Gaviglio does tonight. If he does well, they can either move Biagini to the pen and option down Jake Petricka, or option down Biagini. If he struggles, maybe he goes down and Biagini slots into Stroman’s spot. We shall see.

We have a couple minor league roster moves as well:

Some other notes:

  • Roberto Osuna’s administrative leave has been extended to June 4th
  • Old friend alert - Adam Lind has been released by the Yankees again
  • Hanley Ramirez has also been DFA’d by the Red Sox as they needed a roster spot for Dustin Pedroia. I imagine if the Jays were to DFA Morales, it would come in a similar scenario, like when they need to reinstate Steve Pearce
