The Jays make the bus ride to Lakeland Flordia to play the Tigers. Google says it is an hour and a half drive. Likely it will be on the way there, but it will be rush hour on the way back. I have never seen traffic as bad as rush hour in Florida. We quickly found that the trick was the find a nice spot to wait it out, preferably with good food and make the drive after rush hour ended.
A number of the regulars made the trip. And Alek Manoah gets the start. Nate Pearson is to pitch as well.

The team says Cavan Biggio suffered a left elbow strain this winter, but he’ll be ready to play soon. I’ve been dealing with a right elbow strain.
