Game Thread: Gm 2: Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays


Mandatory Credit: Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the season opener didn’t go so well. After losing 9-2 last night in an ugly manner, The Blue Jays will try and shake it off and get their first win of the season against Alex Cobb and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Viewers will notice the absence of Jose Reyes. He’s been placed on the 15 day DL with hamstring inflammation. Jonathan Diaz gets the call up from AAA Buffalo to take his place. Melky Cabrera fills in at the leadoff spot. Drew Hutchison makes his first start in over a year and a half. That in and of itself is something for Jays fans to tune in for.
