And we have another *major league debut* alert

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays Mary Holt-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are going for the series win for the first Sunday game of the season.

The bad news is the Jays are going up against one of the toughest pitchers in Blake Snell. The good news is he is only slated to pitch 2-3 innings.

Here are today’s lineups. Gurriel gets a day off, Brandon Drury will be making his season debut at 3rd, and Thomas Hatch will be making his major league debut.
