Last night the Jays continued their romping of the Phillies by storming back late to pick up the series win. Matt W has your recap here. Despite the rough outing where Sanchez allowed 10 hits, tying his career high, he said he felt encouraged.
Speaking of injuries to our starting pitchers, check out this neat graph that shows a spread of all the starts our pitchers made this season. WOOF.

Folks in Dunedin should grab their umbrellas, because it appears as if the Bringer of Rain may be back in action there early this week. Behold:
My sources indicate that Josh Donaldson is likely to start a rehab assignment in Dunedin on Monday which explains the empty locker in Toronto. GM Ross Atkins has said previously he didn’t expect Donaldson to need a lengthy rehab assignment. #BlueJays https://t.co/LlDT8wcLxc— Steve Phillips (@StevePhillipsGM) August 26, 2018

Working our way up the farm system ladder, we will take brief stop at AA with some very good news. In addition to having six Full Season All Stars, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats have secured a playoff berth. I do wonder if the team will send down Vladito to help them out. Seems like the most logical thing to do if they aren’t going to #callhimup.

Over here on the West Coast, Dodger Stadium continues to have issues with their power. We thank Dave today for recording his video at exactly the right time.
