The Jays are welcoming their close neighbors the Rays for the last home series in Dunedin. The Rays are red-hot, so here’s hoping the Jays can cool ‘em down.

We have Anthony Kay going against Tyler Glasnow.

A couple of bits of injury news:

  • Cavan Biggio is day-to-day with a sore neck. Hoping that he doesn’t need an IL stint.
  • Lourdes Gurriel took batting practice today, he could pinch-hit tonight.

The Rays made a trade today:

Trevor Richards is going with Adams to the Brewers.

And Brandon Drury has been called up to the New York Mets, with Pete Alonso going on the IL. The Mets have six former Blue Jays on their active roster.
