Monday Bantering: Kirk out for 6 weeks

New, 45 comments

And Jays opening minor league rosters

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Toronto Blue Jays Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

I’m away for a couple of days, and we get all sorts of news.

  • Alejandro Kirk is going to miss ‘significant time’ with a hip flexor strain. We won’t see him again until mid-June at the very best. I’m very sad about this one. I was hoping Kirk would get in 100ish games this year.
  • No George Springer tonight.
  • Tonight’s lineup. Biggio back to the top of the order and playing RF. Teoscar moves over to left and Gurriel to DH.

Start time is 9:30 Eastern.

And we have the opening rosters for the minor league teams.

Buffalo:

Their rotation will be Nate Pearson (he’ll start tomorrow night), Alek Manoah, TJ Zeuch, Jacob Waguespack and Nick Allgeyer.

New Hampshire:

Vancouver:

Dunedin:
