The Jays are going for the series win behind JA Happ in what could be his last start as a Blue Jay.
He will ironically be pitching against a team who could be the most likely to land him.
Clint Frazier has been called up by the Yankees, I suppose in an effort to make the journey to the Blue Jays an easier one for him :)
Here are today's lineups. Gurriel takes up residence in the number 2 slot, and Tesocar Hernandez gets a day off. All Star candidate Luke Maile will catch for JA Happ.
