It's Pride Night at the park under an open roof, so it's the perfect night for another win.
Josh Donaldson is eligible to be reinstated from the disabled list today, but we won't see him for a bit still:
Josh Donaldson on when he might return to lineup from left calf issue: "Today I did some nice work running-wise and I was able to get it to a certain point but it’s not not quite there yet. It’s a day-to-day thing. I don’t really know how long or what it’s going to be."#BlueJays— Scott Mitchell (@ScottyMitchTSN) June 8, 2018
We have some other injury updates too:
- Pearce is expected to get into some rehab games next week
- Stroman threw 3 innings today, and it went well. Will continue throwing progression next week.
-Vladdy Jr has gone down to Dunedin to meet with doctors there regarding his left knee.
Here are tonight's lineups. Granderson will DH instead of Morales, and Martin is back in at catcher. Happ will be going for his 100th career win.
