Sorry about the lack of content today. I’ve been out of the house all day. One of the things I did was hit a bucket of balls for the first time this year, and it went a lot better than I expected.

And I met the newborn baby of friends. She’s just five days old and perfect, and they are thrilled.

The Jays say the Cimber will be activated Monday unless something unforeseen happens. Also, Mitch White’s rehab has slowed down because of shoulder soreness. Zack Pop threw off a mound, working his way toward a rehab assignment.

The big news is that Vlad is back in the lineup, DHing. And Kevin Kiermaier is also back. Beyond that, it is pretty much our regular batting order. It would be nice to score some runs, finally.
