The plan is to play a doubleheader today. We will see what the weather has to say about that. At the moment, we are in a rain delay.

There were plenty of roster moves this morning - Tom recapped them here and here.
Our lineup for the first game has Smith Jr, Maile and Diaz on the bench. Gurriel gets the start at shortstop, and the Bringer of Rain is back (evidently).
Donaldson just did a scrum. In summary, he said he feels as though he can perform up to his capabilities, needed no more minor-league reps. Didn’t want to wait for Tampa b/c this is an important series. Had hoped to play in Minnesota.— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) May 3, 2018
