Andy Pettitte vs. JA Happ.
After winning with the Toronto Blue Bisons last night, the Jays are back to a more normal line-up. Rajai Davis and JP Arencibia are back to face the lefty. That leaves just three Bisons in the line-up, Moises Sierra, still looking for his first major league hit of 2013, Ryan Goins and Kevin Pillar.
AA met with the media today, there will be comments to discuss but off the top Gibby will be back. Did you ever doubt it, he was AA's guy and that means he gets more than one year.
There were 35,000 in attendance last night, that is a great crowd for a bad team, although some percentage would be Yankee fans. Some news from yesterday is that Esmil Rogers will be passed over this time through the rotation, Thursday's off day allows the team to do that. They will need a fifth starter next week, it could be Rogers or a call-up. If Buffalo and New Hampshire do not make the playoffs their seasons will end on Monday.
The AFL rosters were announced today. Marcus Stroman and Sean Nolin are going. Based on that I think it is unlikely that either will be called up for September.
