The Blue Jays made a handful of roster moves before tonight’s game:
- Teoscar Hernandez has been activated from the IL.
- Ken Giles has been put back on the IL, he felt something in his elbow last night. His season is done. We likely won’t see him in a Jays uniform again..
- Derek Fisher goes on the IL, he got hit with a Matt Shoemaker pitch in batting practice (Taijuan Walker was seen giving Matt a wad of cash just afterwards).
- Anthony Kay got optioned out. We figured that was coming, I thought Shun might too, but with Giles going on the IL, we didn’t need to send him out.
- Jacob Waguespack and Hector Perez get called up.
I was really hoping for Patrick Murphy.
Apparently it is a knee injury for Fisher.
Teoscar isn’t expected to play today and likely not tomorrow, maybe a pinch hit role, but it will be a couple of days before he plays a game.
