For the third series in a row, the Jays will have an opportunity to bring out the brooms. Today, the out of options Mike Bolsinger will make perhaps his last start as a Blue Jay against Reds depth starter Tim Adleman.
Guess who’s back in action tonight? Jays Ace Happ, that’s who. The team getting back to full health! It’s Happ-ening!
According to their official PR Twitter Account (and then literally everyone on Twitter immediately after) the Blue Jays have activated J.A. Happ from the 10-day disabled list. In a corresponding roster move to make room on the 25-man, righty Dominic Leone has been optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.
Joe Votto hasn’t played a game in Toronto against the Blue Jays since 2009. That was so long ago that Brett Cecil was starting for the Blue Jays and Russ Adams was the designated hitter. *whistles* Finally, Votto will get a chance to play in front of his future hometown team.
Joey Votto in Toronto! Maybe during this series Votto will realize that he’s always belonged with the Blue Jays and he’ll demand a trade specifically to Toronto? Hell yeah. If that fantasy isn’t going to become reality, the Jays could at least kick the crap out of Cincinnati’s scrapheap rotation.
This is a weekly Monday feature where I’ll look at things that are happening around the AL East, and baseball in general. The Jays didn’t make up much ground in the AL East last week, but the Wild Card is certainly in sight.
It’s always a good time when the Texas Rangers come into town. This is an exciting, heated rivalry, and it’s also hilariously one-sided. The last time we saw the Rangers, the Jays swept them in the ALDS, and it seems these two teams picked up right where they left off.
The Texas Rangers have become the Blue Jays’ biggest, most hated rivals over the last couple years. We all hate the Yankees, Red Sox, and those damn Trash Birds from Baltimore, but after everything that’s gone down between the Jays and Rangers, Texas is the team you see on the calendar and get amped up to…
After making their big return last night, Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki will be on the bench today’s pitchers’ duel between Marco Estrada and Yu Darvish. Thankfully, the roof will be open, according to the Jays Twitter account! Just kidding, it won’t be.
The boys! They’re back! Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki were both activated from the disabled list today, giving the Blue Jays a massive boost that they badly need. And just in time! Because the other boys, the ones from Texas who tend to lose in the ALDS and get all pissy about it months later, are…
Hey, look, it’s our good pals from Texas, the Rangers! This should be a good time.
