After today, the Jays will be halfway done the season. But first, they have an early chance to take a series from a division rival we would just love to beat.

Danny Jansen is back from the injured list, and Riley Adams has been optioned down.

Here are today’s lineups. Springer stays in the no 4 spot, Bichette gets a DH day, and Espinal gets a start at 3rd.

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.
