GameThread Game #117: Rays at Blue Jays

Happy Danny Jansen Day!

MLB: All Star Game-Futures Game Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The rumors started swirling last night that top prospects Danny Jansen and Sean Reid-Foley had received big league call ups, and they were confirmed this morning. I am the most excited. I am essentially the heart eyed emoji.

This is exactly what us fans who tune in every day hope for in a lost season.

Here’s a short video of Danny sharing the story of how he found out about his call up:

Here are the lineups for today. Jansen will sit, and likely catch for Reid-Foley tomorrow. Granderson is back in the lead off spot and Pillar will get a day off after a rough day yesterday.
