The Jays are back home and playing the Orioles again under an open roof. Life is good.
We have some injury updates:
#bluejays updates - Sanchez will start tonight at AA, Gurriel starting rehab games at AAA, and Drury got his cast off, now in a splint, reexamined in a week. If all goes well for Sanchez tonight, he is a possibility for Saturday vs the Phillies.— Dan Shulman (@DShulman_ESPN) August 20, 2018
Sean Reid-Foley has been sent back down, but it sounds like he will be up again very soon:
Gibby: I think it’s been a good experience for SRF. Didn’t necessarily get the results he wanted, but I saw some good things. He’ll go down, catch his breath and after 10 days he can come back up. Got hit around a time or two but he also had success against certain guys #Bluejays— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness590) August 20, 2018
Here are the lineups for tonight. Kevin Pillar has not been benched after yesterday, in fact, he gets to bat second. Danny Jansen will catch for Marco Estrada, which will be a good test for a pitcher who doesn’t shake off his catcher. Luke Maile is back from the paternity list but sitting this one out. Richard Ureña gets another start in place of Devon Travis, who is out recovering from a root canal.
