The end of Spring Training is nigh.
And Sunday features the Toronto Blue Jays being one game closer to opening day as they take on the Philadelphia Phillies in this spring’s penultimate Grapefruit League game. It’ll be big on big fo both teams, sending lineups that won’t be far from their opening day lineups.
Chris Bassitt takes the mound for the Jays, while the Phillies will send out Aaron Nola.
The Jays lineup once again sees George Springer in the leadoff spot, as Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette bat second and third, respectively, as Justin Turner hits cleanup. What’s good news for the Jays is that Kevin Kiermaier draws back into the lineup. He fouled a ball off his right knee Saturday, and was removed from the game.
