The Jays are looking to take the series early from a division foe, which is no easy task considering the foe, the location, and the starting pitchers the Jays are up against.

We have some roster moves ahead of today’s game:

  • Jordan Romano has been reinstated from the 10-day IL
  • Ty Tice has been recalled from Alternate Training Site
  • Josh Palacios and Travis Bergen have been optioned to Alternate Training Site

We also have some injury updates. It doesn’t sound like we will see Springer this weekend:

The Jays also signed a couple players to minor league deals:
