Happy Saturday! Five days to go until Opening Day.
Hyun-Jin Ryu will officially be the Jays opening day starter (to no one’s surprise):
Hyun-Jin Ryu said he was more nervous about last yr’s opening day start than any other postseason starts (incld WS starts) he has made in his career. Super excited to see how handles 2nd opening day start w/ #BlueJays. #MLB https://t.co/m11Dp7G8QC— Daniel Kim 대니얼 김 (@DanielKimW) March 27, 2021
We have some injury updates:
- Robbie Ray did plyometric work today, will start a throwing progression tomorrow if he feels good. Not ruled out for start of season yet— Kaitlyn McGrath (@kaitlyncmcgrath) March 27, 2021
- George Springer is going to hit off a tee tomorrow. Team still hoping he can go Opening Day
- Nate Pearson will play long toss tomorrow.
The good news is that we have another broadcast today. The bad news is that the broadcast is put on by the Yankees.
Here is today’s lineup. Jonathan Davis starts in right, Teoscar will DH and Espinal gets aq start at 3rd.
A.J. Cole, Anthony Castro, Travis Bergen and Joel Payamps are expected to follow.
