Goins to get me some

Nice game today. A bit of everything. Estrada was awesome and finished out 8 shutout innings. Pillar hits a double. Ryan executes a perfect bunt to advance him to 3rd, but neither Bautista nor Donaldson could drive him in. That was kind of disappointing. Then in the 9th, Aaron Loup who was great yesterday struckout one, but then hits the batter and then gives up a homer. He’s replaced with Drew Storen and everyone was nervous. He promptly gave up a double. So Jesse Chavez and Chad Girodo both madly start warming up. But fortunately he got his 2 outs without any further damage and the Jays win!

PLAYER OF THE GAME

I definitely have to give that to Marco Estrada. He went 8 innings and only gave up 3 hits shutting out the Yanks.

HITTER OF THE GAME

Ryan Goins who went 2 for 2 against Ivan Nova with an RBI and 2 runs scored. A double and an opposite field home run! He also executed a perfect sac bunt to advance Kevin Pillar.

PLAY OF THE GAME

I have to say the 3-6-3 double play (Smoak 1B-Barney 2B-Smoak 1B). Love those!

DESIGNATED FOR ASSIGNMENT (DFA)

After 7 games, Jimmy Paredes has been designated for assignment. What does that mean?

Accoring to Wikipedia, a player who is DFA is immediately removed from the team’s 40-man roster, after which the team must either:

  • return the player to the 40-man roster within 10 days from the date of designation, or
  • make one of the following moves:
    1. Place the player on waivers
    2. Trade the player
    3. Release the player
    4. Outright the player from the 40-man roster into the Minor Leagues

So we’ll see what happens. They did it to bring Ryan Tepera back up from the Minors (I’m surprised they haven’t yet given up on Tepera). I expect a reversal or another roster move within the week. Tepera has struggled to stay on the roster and Brett Cecil may be back by then.
