Game Threat: Jose At Third Alert! Blue Jays (19-26) @ Brewers (25-19)

Jose Bautista hasn’t started a game at third base since… 2013! Oh god, the parallels!

News and Scuttlebutt

Benny Fresh with the good and bad news! Aaron Sanchez is probably going to be out longer this time than his other two disabled list stints, which is, uh, probably necessary because this blister thing needs to go away once and for all. Francisco Liriano will make a rehab start on Sunday, and his return would obviously be a big boost for the rotation. Nothing on J.A. Happ as of right now. And finally, Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki are apparently both going to be back this weekend! Hopefully it actually happens this time!

And now, the lineups…

Blue Jays

Joe Biagini: 31 /23 IP, 3.41 ERA, 6.8 H9, 0.6 HR9, 1.4 BB9, 7.7 S09


Jimmy Nelson: 44 1/3 IP, 3.86 ERA, 9.1 H9, 1.0 HR9, 3.0 BB9, 8.3 SO9

So, yeah, Jose is starting at third base and Chris Coghlan is out in the field. I guess the Jays aren’t comfortable with Coghlan at third but want that lefty bat in the lineup, which makes some sense. Regardless, man, Donny and Tulo need to come back ASAP.
