It's Stroman Shimmy Wobble Bobble Day under an open roof, so it has to be a good one, right? Sammy G is tasked once again with preventing a sweep against a heavy offense.
Couple of quotes re: Josh Donaldson:
Josh Donaldson says his "goal" is to play Friday against Baltimore and says there's a "chance" he does (left calf injury). Donaldson said today the sprinting part is coming along in his recovery -- the next test to pass is run longer distances and feel better about it— Arash Madani (@ArashMadani) June 6, 2018
Josh Donaldson was asked if the multiple DL stints this season have been particularly difficult on him, what with being a pending free agent.— Arash Madani (@ArashMadani) June 6, 2018
Donaldson's answer: "Whatever the future holds -- I'm not controlling that. I can only control what I do."
