MLB: Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

I am happy to report I survived four days backpacking in the Sierras, and am only slightly worse for the wear. Thanks to Tom for filling in for me while I was gone.

The Jays have added Kirby Snead to the active roster, with Jacob Barnes getting the DFA:

The Jays also announced they hope Corey Dickerson will start a rehab assignment this week.

Here are tonight’s lineups. The Jays are still going with their reshuffle that has Springer on top and Vladdy batting 2nd. McGuire will catch for Thomas Hatch.

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “don’t be terrible,” but these days it’s also, “please debate about baseball and not the coronavirus or vaccines.” If a moderator asks you to stop doing something, please stop. If you want to discuss the rules, don’t do it in the thread. Email Tom instead. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here. You can Adopt-a-Jay here, and here’s a helpful tutorial on how to post images in the comments.
