Ailing Josh Donaldson not starting in Blue Jays' home opener

Share

The Blue Jays expect to add to their bullpen by reinstating closer Roberto Osuna from the disabled list. Donaldson also missed a large portion of spring training with a calf injury.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons looks on during the game against the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. This won't always be the best hitter, but it will always be someone who did something notable that we can break down further. No punches were thrown. "I think he could be playing as early as tomorrow".

Baseball is more than just a sport to the Nelson family. "Hopefully we just move on". "I don't think he would want to injure me". With an exit velocity of 103 miles per hour, Donaldson launched a 2-2 fastball a whopping 414 feet to dead center field, which Platinum Glove defender Kevin Kiermaier somehow, incredibly, nearly pulled back into play.

Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun, who hit a three-run homer Sunday, was not ready to make any conclusions from the first week of the season. The Jays are paper thin at several positions. The slugger has gone deep four times in 20 at-bats against Odorizzi. The Blue Jays went on to win their second World Series. Toronto has matched its worst start after six games, which came in 2014.

The price tag for buying the Marlins could be anywhere from $800,000 to $1.6 billion, according to the bidders. If Derek Jeter has his way, the Marlins will be talked about in the same breath as the Yankees for years.

Things are not exactly hopping for the Milwaukee Brewers, either, as they start their first road trip of the season with a two-game set against the Blue Jays. "The optimism that everybody's feeling good, the energy..."

But this year, in the Jays' 40th year, the home opener falls on the Jewish holiday of Passover and, as Nelson says with a smile: "God told us not to go". Tulowitzki and Morales lead the team with six RBIs each, however Tulo is hitting.125 and Morales is hitting.208.

Josh Donaldson will not start for the Blue Jays as they take on the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday in the home opener. Toronto had a home attendance of 3,392,099 last season, its most since 1993 (4,057,947). Marco Estrada took his first loss of the season giving up 5 earned runs on 7 hits while striking out 5 over 5 innings.
