It is nice to see the Blue Jays win a few finally. The Jays are now above .500, something that I thought was very unlikely with the way they had been playing.
They made a roster move before today’s game:
Sam Gaviglio was recalled. Jacob Waguespack (thanks for the relief work yesterday) was optioned to the taxi squad.
Sam allowed 3 runs in 2 appearances, adding up to 1 inning earlier in the season.
Also added to the taxi squad:
- LHP Travis Bergen
- OF Billy McKinney
- INF Ruben Tejada.
Caleb Joseph is also on the taxi squad.
I was sad to see the Jays DFAed Anthony Alford. I don’t understand why they would want Billy McKinney over him, but I’m hoping someone who will give him a good opportunity will pick him up.
Today’s lineup is different. I don’t understand Cavan in the seventh spot. He gets on base against lefties just fine. And Danny Jansen batting third is interesting.
|Lourdes Gurriel - LF||Austin Meadows - LF|
|Randal Grichuk - CF||Brandon Lowe - 2B|
|Danny Jansen - C||Yandy Diaz - 3B|
|Teoscar Hernandez - DH||Ji-Man Choi - 1B|
|Vladimir Guerrero - 1B||Joey Wendle - SS|
|Travis Shaw - 3B||Yoshi Tsutsugo - DH|
|Brandon Drury - 2B||Hunter Renfroe - RF|
|Cavan Biggio - RF||Kevin Kiermaier - CF|
|Santiago Espinal - SS||Michael Perez - C|
|Matt Shoemaker - RHP||Ryan Yarbrough - LHP|
I’m officially worried:
