The Jays made a back-end of the bullpen move:

  • Trent Thornton goes down to Buffalo. He pitches 1.1 innings yesterday, 37 pitches. So he wouldn’t be available today.
  • Thomas Hatch is up in his place. Hatch has thrown 3.2 innings for the Jays, and hasn’t allowed a run, on 3 hits, 3 walks and 8 strikeouts. 8 strikeouts on 11 outs is pretty good.

In Buffalo Hatch has a 4.08 ERA in 35.1 innings, with 39 strikeouts.

Today’s lineup. Kiermaier is back.
