It’s not often that I say this, but please don’t get swept.
We have some not so great news from Dunedin:
Confirming that @BringerOfRain20 will not be playing in Dunedin tonight due to leg soreness. @ShiDavidi first to report. The #BlueJays will likely have to pull him back off waivers because they can no longer certify he is healthy and able to play at accustomed level.— Steve Phillips (@StevePhillipsGM) August 29, 2018
What a nightmare scenario for the front office.
Marco Estrada sounds like he is good to go though:
Gibby: Expecting Estrada to be available for his next start (Saturday night in Miami), haven’t heard any different. He’s down there in Florida. #Bluejays— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness590) August 29, 2018
