This should be a fun series. The Yankees will get an up and close look at Vlad Jr., Cavan Biggio and the Toronto Blue Jays. The 2019 schedule is a little quirky in that this will be the first time the Bombers will be facing Toronto this season. The Jays have struggled as Steven describes in detail here. Hopefully, the Yankees will take advantage and get this road trip off to a good start. Here are the lineups.

Blue Jays

  1. Eric Sogard, 2B
  2. Vladimir Guerrero JR., 3B
  3. Justin Smoak, 1B
  4. Rowdy Tellez, DH
  5. Randall Grichuk, CF
  6. Cavan Biggio, RF
  7. Lourdes Gurriel JR., LF
  8. Freddy Galvis, SS
  9. Danny Jansen, C

LHP Clayton Richard


  1. DJ LeMahieu, 2B

  7. Gio Urshela, 3B
  8. Cameron Maybin, RF
  9. Brett Gardner, LF

The big news from today is the Clint Frazier pre-game interview. Clint doesn’t regret avoiding the media Sunday night after that brutal game and went on the offensive (or defensive depending on your perspective) by pointing out the multiple negative stories written about him since his debut a few years ago. This is turning into a much larger story than it needs to be. You can read updates here, here and here…Luis Severino made 50 throws from 60 feet today. The next target is throwing on back to back days and he believes he will be back shortly after the All Star Break…Giancarlo Stanton had nine plate appearances in a simulated game in Tampa today. In addition, Stanton participated in running and agility drills. Danny Farqhar pitched to Giancarlo…Aaron Judge was “feeling really good” before leaving for Tampa on Sunday according to Aaron Boone. Judge played catch and fielded grounders in right today. Enjoy the game everyone!

    So, uh…
    This David Wells in the booth experiment… this can’t happen again.

    Only tuned for 2 innings so far but my initial takeaway is that this is a rough broadcast crew! Is it these guys the whole road trip??
