A tiny bit of Blue Jays news:
The Marlins claimed Brian Moran from the Jays off waivers.
Moran got into a couple of games with the Jays, pitching an inning, allowing a hit and getting a strikeout. The Marlins are grabbing up every warm body they can, especially guys who can throw a ball.
Bye Brian. Be careful out there.
Sam Gaviglio has been optioned and added to the taxi squad.
Jonathan Davis has been reinstated from the injured list and optioned to the club’s alternate training site.
And this is kind of funny:
When Yoenis Cespedes didn't show up today, the Mets sent security to his room. They found it empty. He had taken his belongings, just up and left, and through his agent informed the team mid-game that he was opting out, according to Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) August 2, 2020
I’d get away from the games as quick as I could too.
The Mets traded for Billy Hamilton just yesterday.
