Congratulations to Daniel Hudson who misses game one for paternity reasons. Reportedly this is the third child for Daniel and his wife.
Ex-Jay content includes JA Happ, Hudson, Osuna, Jake Marisnick, Joe Smith, Aledmys Diaz, Yan Gomes and Edwin. Did I miss any? The Cardinals might be the only remaining team without an ex-Jay.
