There is a little bit of Jays news.
The team activated Julian Merryweather from the IL. Sadly, to me, Bryan Baker was sent back to Buffalo to make room on the roster.
Merryweather has thrown 4.1 innings for us this season. Only allowed 1 hit and 1 walk with 7 strikeouts.
And Anthony Kay has been placed on the Covid IL. I hope he’s ok.
No Springer again, so we have the lineup as yesterday with Jansen standing in for McGuire.

Little makes me happier than seeing Larry Walker inducted into the Hall of Fame. A very deserving player. One of the best in my memory.
