The Toronto Blue Jays begin their 2017 home schedule with their first interleague opponent of the season. Might as well, they've had little success against the American League so far.
Former Blue Jay Eric Thames returns to Toronto where he began his major league career in 2011.
Series Schedule/Probable Starters
Tuesday at 7:07 pm ET - Wily Peralta (1-0, 0.00) vs. J.A. Happ (0-1, 3.86)
Wednesday at 7:07 pm ET - Chase Anderson (0-0, 1.50) vs. Marcus Stroman (1-0, 1.42)
It's a real clash of the titans as the 1-5 Blue Jays take on the 2-5 Milwaukee Brewers. Former Jay Eric Thames is off to a nice start with a slash line of .333/.429/.611 with two doubles, a home run and three runs batted in.
Burning Questions - Will Josh Donaldson be back in the lineup after injuring his calf in Sunday's loss in Tampa? Will Roberto Osuna return with his usual effectiveness? Will the Jays actually win a home opener for the first time since the great uniform change of 2012?
Hot Takes - Is it too early to start thinking about the 2018 draft?
Fun/Not So Fun Fact - The Jays have played the Brewers twice in home openers back at Exhibition Stadium. The 1980 game went well but the 1982 game as the Brew Crew bombed Mark Bomback.
Up next - Baltimore is in town April 13-16.
