After an off-day yesterday, we have Jays and Red Sox tonight.
Rafael Dolis is back tonight from the IL. Nick Allgeyer was sent out yesterday, so there was an open spot.
Rowdy Tellez hasn’t been put on the IL, I’m hoping that is good news for Rowdy. I really thought he would be out for a bit. He won’t be in the lineup tonight.
And Joe Panik is just about ready to return.
In a season of Tony La Russa things, this is the most Tony La Russa:
Tony La Russa was 'upset' that Yermin Mercedes hit a home run on a 3-0 count last night in a blowout win.— Jesse Rogers (@JesseRogersESPN) May 18, 2021
"He made a mistake. There will be a consequence he has to endure here within our family."
“There will be a consequence”. Yes Tony, let’s punish the guy for hitting a home run. As Daffy Duck says:
It sounds like Kevin Pillar is as well as could be hoped after yesterday's pitch to the nose. Multiple nasal fractures don't sound fun but it could have been much much worse. The Mets picked up Cameron Maybin today.
Tonight’s lineup. Espinal in at third, which has happened a few times with Ryu pitching:
Already a lineup change. Biggio will DH, not play right, Gurriel will go to left, Hernandez to right.
Cavan Biggio, in #Bluejays original lineup in RF, will DH instead, with Gurriel playing LF and Hernandez moving to RF.— Mike Wilner (@Wilnerness) May 18, 2021
Biggio has a sore neck that affects his throwing, but he can still swing the bat.
Charlie Montoyo says Rowdy Tellez is fine and can be used if needed.
