The Blue Jays are going for the sweep. It's been so long since I've been able to write that. It's nice.
We have some not so nice news:
#BlueJays say Vlad Guerrero Jr. underwent series of tests on knee, diagnosed with strain of left patella tendon. Will be "managed conservatively," including initial rest period. Will be re-evaluated in four weeks. Short version: He’ll be out for a month, maybe more,— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) June 10, 2018
Other injury updates:
In other injury updates, Marcus Stroman will pitch again on Wednesday. Pearce might see game action by the end of the week. Donaldson still needs to complete baserunning before returning. #BlueJays— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) June 10, 2018
