Happy first day of Spring! This is a signal to us that real baseball is only days away. Until then, we are blessed with another broadcast as the Jays take on the Phillies and the Phanatic in Clearwater.
Steven Matz will aim to continue his excellent Spring performance and inch out Robbie Ray for the lead in exceeding expectations.
Here is today’s lineup - very closely resembling opening day minus Vladdy. Springer will DH, Biggio gets a start at 3rd, and Grichuk will play center.
Probable pitchers out of the bullpen are: RHP’s Tyler Chatwood, Kirby Yates and Joel Payamps https://t.co/g3peL6zAcd— Hazel Mae (@thehazelmae) March 20, 2021
We also have an update that’s not really an update on Thomas Hatch:
RHP Thomas Hatch has mild right elbow inflammation and the team is still gathering information, per #BlueJays— Hazel Mae (@thehazelmae) March 20, 2021
Is a return to play in Toronto sooner than we think?
This should be more of a headline: President of @BlueJays tells @TheAthletic he has “fairly good information” that MLB players will be vaccinated within the next month: https://t.co/sk6NYKYMdv pic.twitter.com/pRqMVA5dBC— Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) March 20, 2021
