#149 - New York Yankees (97-52) at Toronto Blue Jays (58-90)

Saturday, September 14, 2019 | 3:07 pm
Rogers Centre | Toronto, Ontario

James Paxton (13-6, 3.96, 1.31) vs. Jacob Waguespack (4-4, 4.55, 1.33)


After yesterday's marathon extra-innings thriller that had a little bit of everything from a Bo Bichette walk-off to a devastating injury to Tim Mayza, the Blue Jays look to take advantage of an overworked Yankees pitching staff (doubleheader on Thursday, extra innings on Friday, losing Happ to injury) and aim for a series win in this afternoon's second game.

Jacob Waguespack takes the ball for the Jays as he looks to bounce back from a rough outing against the Rays his last time out.  James Paxton is his counterpart on the mound for the Yankees; even with his no-hitter last year, Paxton is 3-3, 5.44 in eight starts against the Blue Jays for his career.


It's official, Mayza is out for the rest of this year and also likely all of 2020:

Other roster changes:  Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Luke Maile have been activated off the injury list.

Bo called his shot:

Alek Manoah is up visiting with the Jays this weekend:

In case you missed Billy McKinney's hot-shot that almost took off LeMahieu's head and ended up being a very unlucky DP last night:


This is your "welcome back, Lourdes" game threat.
