Wednesday Bantering: Roster Moves

There are are bits of Blue Jays news:

  • Julian Merryweather gets the start tonight. I’d be surprised if he can get through 3 innings, but I’ll be hopeful.
  • There are some roster moves. Sean Reid-Foley and Derek Fisher are added to the roster. Travis Bergen and Sam Gaviglio subtracted. Reid-Foley could pitch 2-3 innings if needed. And we needed a spare outfielder.
  • Trent Thornton has ‘loose bodies’ in his elbow.
  • Ken Giles is feeling good after throwing yesterday, sounds like just a matter of time before he’s activated.
  • Travis Shaw is in today’s lineup, so must be feeling ok.

There is rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for Buffalo tonight, they might have to play faster than yesterday’s marathon if they want to get it in.

And there are moves afoot to get the playoffs played in ‘controlled sites’:

Texas and California are two of hot spots for Covid.
