The Jays are back to trying to avoid the sweep, but it’s a good day because it’s Ryan Borucki Day! It’s also J.A. Happ Day. Just ignore which team he is playing for.
Luis Santos has been optioned down to AAA, and Justin Shafer has been handed a big league promotion. As mentioned yesterday, Marcus Stroman has been placed on the DL, and Thomas Pannone has been recalled. Aaron Sanchez has been transferred to the 60 Day DL to make room on the 40-man for Shafer.
Here is today’s lineup. Martin is batting lead off, Morales is playing first, Teoscar is DHing and Billy McKinney gets another start.
