|Bautista saying "howdy" to Odor after the Bat Flip|

Rogers Centre | Toronto, Ontario
Lance Lynn (14-7, 3.60, 1.19)
Wilmer Font (opener, 1-0, 2.51, 0.84) and Thomas Pannone (bulk, 2-5, 6.83, 1.41)
After a thorough beatdown in last night's opener, the Blue Jays look to carry over the momentum into tonight's second game against their not-so-beloved rivals, the Rangers. The Jays' youth movement is in full force with Freddy Galvis being scooped up on waivers, and last night's rout was a good start moving forward.
Wilmer Font will open the game for the Jays and then turn things over to Thomas Pannone when he's good'n'ready. They will matchup against Lance Lynn, who has been beaten around a little by the Jays in his career (1-2, 6.11 ERA in six outings). Pannone set fire to the mound in his one start against the Rangers earlier this season (7 runs in 2.1 innings).
A few roster moves to report. After initial reports coming in that Rowdy Tellez was in the Jays clubhouse and a move was afoot, we have this:
Brock Stewart is indeed the corresponding move, he’s optioned to Triple-A.— Scott Mitchell (@ScottyMitchTSN) August 13, 2019
Rowdy Tellez on the bench tonight.
Zack Godley will likely play a bigger role later this homestand with Stewart down.
Ken Giles is available tonight.#BlueJays
In last night's game, Rougned Odor did his usual fuck-knuckled (™ Tom Jackson) jackassery by totally pimping out his solo HR hit with the Rangers down 17-2 in the 7th.
Let's remind everyone of some good Jays-vs-Odor moments, shall we?
Happy birthday to Tina!
Shed a tear for MK - she's got most likely a broken toe. Wishing her a speedy recovery.
It's All Over! is still campaigning for Joe's banning. Crowd says no. (just kidding, guys)
This is your "Texas Beatdown II" game threat.
