Game #103 GameThread: Jays @ Dodgers

Once again, I want to say, “Today’s game can’t be worse than yesterday’s,” but that seems like a dare to the baseball gods.

The Jays made a trade this afternoon. DFAed pitcher Trent Thornton is going to the Mariners for minor league infielder Mason McCoy. McCoy played SS, 2B and 3B in Triple-A Tacoma. He’s 29 and was hitting .234/.330/.407 with 11 home runs, 45 walks, 113 strikeouts with 20 steals (caught just once). He’s not a prospect, but more a depth player.

We have Yusei Kikuchi throwing for the Jays today. I’m hoping John gives him a bit more rope today. I understand that having a lot of faith in Yusei is hard, but John will have to find a way. Kikuchi is 7-3 with a 3.92 ERA. He’s only gone 6 innings or more five times. This really needs to be time number six.

Tony Gonsolin gets the start for the Dodgers. He is 5-3, with a 3.94 ERA. He has a 6.97 ERA in his last six starts and rarely pitches deep into games.
