Drew Hutchison vs Felix Hernandez tonight, J.A. Happ vs Chris Young on Tuesday, and R.A. Dickey, vs Hisashi Iwakuma on Wednesday before the Jays get Thursday off. All RHP vs the Jays.
Brett Lawrie - celebrating a home run with Anthony Gose against the New York Yankees September 30, 2012 - returns to the lineup after breaking his right index finger June 22.
I fear the Yankees.
The Jays have designated Sergio Santos for assigment. Rob Rassmussen has been recalled. Santos has an ERA of close to eight this season and a WHIP over two. Santos has only four, three up, three down innings this year and only one of them has come after April.
I guess if you don't have money to sign players, the release of a non-performer "sends a message" to the team to win now. This maybe explains why AA was looking at Aaron Sanchez as an option for the major league bullpen, he is a Santos replacement.
Brad Mills is back with the Blue Jays. He will be wearing #38, a decrease of 21 after wearing #59 in his first stint.
R.A. Dickey gets the call for tonight's game at O.co Coliseum.
Anthony Gose will look to improve on his batting line of .233/.347/.291 in 34 games with Toronto this season. He is 3-for-6 in the stolen base department.
Munenori Kawasaki is back from Buffalo after hitting .276 with nine runs batted in. The 33 year-old lefthanded hitter was batting .378 in his past 10 contests with the Bisons. He was 3-for-12 in three games with the Jays earlier this season.
Adron Chambers is now a member of the Blue Jays organization. Going to the other way to Houston are lefthander Alejandro Solarte and second baseman Will Dupont. Solarte posted a 2.98 earned run average and Dupont batted .262 for the Gulf Coast Blue Jays last season.
