The Jays have decided to put Santiago Espinal on the IL and callup Otto Lopez.
Lopez hasn’t had the best time of it in Buffalo. He’s hitting .213/.273/.260 with the Bisons (so he’ll fit well with our Jays). He’s played SS, 2B, LF and CF with the Bisons.
I can’t imagine that Espinal will be out more than the minimum ten days.
And Hyun-Jin Ryu and Chad Green are going to throw bullpens in Tampa. They aren’t going to to be pitching for the Jays anytime soon, but this is a step towards it.
And Adam Cimber isn’t going to be activated today. I figured it was likely to happen today.
Here is today’s lineup. Let’s hope the runs they have been saving up show up tonight.
|George Springer - RF||Yandy Diaz - 1B|
|Bo Bichette - SS||Wander Franco - SS|
|Vladimir Guerrero - 1B||Brandon Lowe - 2B|
|Matt Chapman - 3B||Randy Arozarena - LF|
|Daulton Varsho - LF||Isaac Paredes - 3B|
|Alejandro Kirk - C||Josh Lowe - DH|
|Whit Merrifield - 2B||Christian Bethancourt - C|
|Danny Jansen - DH||Jose Siri - CF|
|Kevin Kiermaier - CF||Luke Raley - RF|
|Chris Bassitt - RHP||Josh Fleming - LHP|
