GameThread Game #96: Orioles at Blue Jays

Baseball is back!

The Manny Machado-less Orioles are in town for a brief series. I am sure the morale in the visitor's clubhouse has to be pretty low today. The highest OPS on the Orioles now that Manny is gone is Trumbo's at .761. The next highest is Danny Valencia's at .727.

Blue Jays' Ace Sam Gaviglio will be handed the ball for the first game back. Let's kick off the second half with a win.

Here are the lineups for today. Richard Ureña has been recalled from Buffalo as the corresponding move to Chris Rowley's option down. Granderson is back in the lead off spot, and Russell Martin will catch for Gaviglio. The Blue Jays will have 10 relievers available in the bullpen.
