Happy Friday, everyone!
How did the Jays’ affiliates enjoy Canada Day and 4th of July? It’s the week of the biggest crowds of the year in baseball, all the while the Bluefield Blue Jays pile up runs, the Vancouver Canadians’ offense looks for a spark, Josh Winckowski posts zeroes, DJ Neal and LJ Talley come through in the clutch, Justin Shafer is named to the International League All-Star Team. and more from around the system!
Around The Nest is a weekly podcast about the Blue Jays’ minor league system hosted by the Voice of the Lugnuts Jesse Goldberg-Strassler and featuring the voices of each of the Jays’ active minor league affiliates. It usually goes live every Friday afternoon at 4:00 pm during the season.
As always, we welcome your questions in the comments below. Here are a few questions from the Around The Nest team:
- Does Sean Reid-Foley return to the Blue Jays immediately following the All-Star break? Was the incredibly small sample size enough to convince you that he deserves a spot on the roster?
- Will Aaron Sanchez be sent down ahead of this weekend’s deadline? Where do you see him finishing the season? Is he still in a Blue Jays uniform, or does he don the crest of another club?
