GameThread Game #8: Blue Jays at Cleveland

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Cleveland Indians Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Blue Jays are in Cleveland and set to play their first outdoor game of the season in balmy 5C weather.

Because it’s a day that ends in “y”, we have injury updates:

Pannone is presently set to start Saturday’s game as long as Friday night’s doesn’t get rained out.

It’s also MiLB Opening Day, and congratulations go out to the Bisons who have the first affiliate win of the season! They beat Gio Gonzalez and the Railriders 8-3

Here are tonight’s lineups. Smoak was scratched with a sore neck, so naturally Lourdes Gurriel Jr will be playing 1st base. Socrates Brito (who will be wearing number 19) and Alen Hanson will both debut tonight. The Jays will be taking on drone boy.


Should Brito be allowed to wear number 19?
