Three wins? In a row?! It almost feels like it isn’t 2017! April showers bring May flowers, I’ll tell you what.
News and Scuttlebutt
Donaldson/Tulo are currently rehabbing in Florida. #BlueJays will see them this weekend, should have better idea of return date then.

The sooner these two guys get back the better, obviously. But as I’ve said before, I really hope they don’t rush it, because this season is a marathon, and the last thing we need is for injuries to come back up in June because a guy was thrown back too early. I don’t assume that’s going to happen or anything, but, ya know.
And now, the lineups…
— Blue Jays (@BlueJays) May 2, 2017
Mat Latos: 11.0 IP, 3.27 ERA, 7.4 H9, 0.8 HR9, 5.7 BB9, 4.1 SO9
— New York Yankees (@Yankees) May 2, 2017
Masahiro Tanaka: 30.0 IP, 4.20 ERA, 8.4 H9, 0.9 HR9, 3.0 BB9, 6.6 SO9
The Jays are walking a tightrope with Mat Latos. We all know the wheels are going to fall off eventually, but hopefully he can continue his success tonight in New York, as the team seems to be finding its groove. Going for the Yankees will be Masahiro Tanaka, who’s settled in after a poor start to the season. He hasn’t been striking as many guys out because he isn’t using his slider, probably because he’s pitching with an arm that’s about to fall off.
