Let’s take the series.
Ryu has been placed on the IL with a neck strain. Ross Stripling is an option to make up his next start. The Jays need to figure out whatever it is that’s been causing him to struggle so much lately.
Here are today’s lineups. Jansen catches, Valera gets the start at 3rd, and Dickerson will start in center.
|Luis Arraez – 3B||George Springer – DH|
|Byron Buxton – CF||Marcus Semien – 2B|
|Jorge Polanco – 2B||Vladimir Guerrero – 1B|
|Josh Donaldson – DH||Bo Bichette – SS|
|Max Kepler – RF||Teoscar Hernandez – RF|
|Miguel Sano – 1B||Corey Dickerson – CF|
|Nick Gordon – SS||Lourdes Gurriel – LF|
|Jake Cave – LF||Breyvic Valera – 3B|
|Ben Rortvedt – C||Danny Jansen – C|
|Juan Minaya – RHP||Jose Berrios – RHP|
We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “don’t be terrible,” but these days, it’s also, “please debate about baseball and not the coronavirus or vaccines.” If a moderator asks you to stop doing something, please stop. If you want to discuss the rules, don’t do it in the thread. Email Tom instead. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here. You can Adopt-a-Jay here, and here’s a helpful tutorial on how to post images in the comments.
