The word ‘MOM’ written into the batters box dirt by Rowdy Tellez after his MLB debut game against Tampa Bay Rays

Greetings from London, where I am writing this GameThread at 9:30pm instead of 1:30pm like I normally do. It’s weird.

Since it’s a new day, we have some new Donaldson drama.

Here is Lozano’s statement in full:

Steve Phillips is backing Lozano’s claim:

Jon Heyman is also reporting that the Blue Jays and Gibbons are 99.9% likely to part ways after this season. Didn’t we find this out a while ago?

And then there’s this.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Donaldson is back on the DL so he won’t be playing, but EE is batting fourth. On the Jays side, Reese McGuire is making his MLB debut at catcher, batting 8th and Rowdy Tellez will get his first MLB start at 1st base.

Today's Lineups

Francisco Lindor - SS Billy McKinney - RF
Jason Kipnis - 2B Devon Travis - 2B
Jose Ramirez - 3B Lourdes Gurriel - SS
Edwin Encarnacion - DH Kendrys Morales - DH
Yonder Alonso - 1B Kevin Pillar - CF
Melky Cabrera - RF Rowdy Tellez - 1B
Yan Gomes - C Teoscar Hernandez - LF
Greg Allen - CF Reese McGuire - C
Brandon Guyer - LF Aledmys Diaz - 3B
