GameThread Game #60: Yankees at Blue Jays

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

We take a break from your 2018 MLB draft coverage to bring you our regularly scheduled game.

The Evil Empire is in town for a two game series, fresh off a double header yesterday they ended up splitting in Detroit.

We get this piece of breaking news from Jon Morosi:

In other news, water is wet.

The Jays also lost their Sunday Night Baseball game, as it has been shifted back to the afternoon to better accommodate the Yankees who are playing a doubleheader the next day, and ESPN will instead broadcast the Dodgers/Angels game.

For tonight, Vladito will be back in the Fisher Cats lineup. A good sign after leaving a game early over the weekend with an injury.

Here's our lineups for tonight. Tesocar Hernandez is also back after fouling a ball off his foot. On the other side, Aaron Judge broke a record for the most strikeouts in a double header yesterday (he struck out eight times) so he gets to sit today.
