The Jays are giving Bo a day off, easing him into regular play. I’m good with the idea, but I’d guess he will pinch-hit if needed. And no Brandon Belt. They were hoping he could be ready today. Maybe he’ll be available to pinch-hit.
Here is today’s lineup:
|Maikel Garcia - 3B||George Springer - RF|
|Bobby Witt - SS||Spencer Horwitz - DH|
|Salvador Perez - C||Vladimir Guerrero - 1B|
|MJ Melendez - LF||Davis Schneider - 2B|
|Nelson Velazquez - RF||Cavan Biggio - 3B|
|Michael Massey - 2B||Alejandro Kirk - C|
|Edward Olivares - DH||Daulton Varsho - LF|
|Drew Waters - CF||Ernie Clement - SS|
|Nick Pratto - 1B||Kevin Kiermaier - CF|
|Zack Greinke - RHP||Kevin Gausman - RHP|
I think I need one of these:

Since we often complain about a plate umpire doing a bad job, let’s congratulate one doing a good job. He wasn’t 100%, but he was close.
