Tuesday is a day as good as any for a bounce back. This will largely depend on how Marco Estrada does, I suppose.
Grichuk has been moved up to AAA where ˙I am sure he will stay until he starts hitting well. Aledmys Diaz is starting in a AA game today.
Here are the lineups for tonight. Donaldson is out, as expected, so Kevin Pillar is naturally batting second.
Gibby: We’re experimenting with Pillar in the 2 spot, with Donaldson out. Try to get a spark up there. I see a totally different guy. Sometimes it takes a few years to figure it out. #Bluejays— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness590) May 29, 2018
It sounds like they will rest Josh today and likely tomorrow, then have him benefit from the off day and start him Friday. Not as bad as it could be, for sure.
Today's answer to #WhereIsRussellMartin looks like 3rd base.
