The Jays did just that on Monday night at the Rogers Centre, mixing a solid outing from starting pitcher Marcus Stroman with some timely run production and outstanding defence in a 4-2 win. He's everything we (expected). Martin had rested four times over the last 10 games, so his shoulder ailment likely explains that.

And Pillar didn't even need to look in his glove after hitting the dirt, tumbling and getting back on his feet in seconds.

The Blue Jays have had their share of injuries, with the left side of their infield on the disabled list - third baseman Josh Donaldson (calf) and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring). "You go out and try to win today". Francisco Lindor earned his 19 RBI of the season for Cleveland. "They pitched better than us, they hit better than us, and they played defense better than us".

The Blue Jays made it 4-0 on Justin Smoak's two-run single in the third.

Cleveland has scored three runs or fewer in seven straight games. The Preds and Leafs tied with 94 points in the regular season, but because Nashville advanced, they will select at the bottom of the first round.

Mae closed the interview by asking the 34-year-old if he had a message for the fans who were with him through the highs and lows of his time in a Blue Jays uniform. To be fair, they made him a very reasonable deal to start the offseason, but when he declined they quickly replaced him with Kendrys Morales. Toronto RHP Mat Latos was assigned outright to Buffalo after being designated for assignment. He has never faced Cleveland before.

Le Pen speech plagiarism 'a wink to former candidate Fillon'
The moderate CFDT union marked the May Day holiday with a small Paris rally against Le Pen, leader of the National Front party. Then-party leader Jean-Marie Le Pen sought to distance himself from the attackers, but the death drew national outrage.

Prior to spending the last two seasons with the Dodgers, Bolsinger originally broke into the big leagues back in 2014 with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The game tips off at 7:00 PM EST in Rogers Centre, Toronto and can be watched online on FuboTV. Bauer is 1-1 with a 6.27 ERA in three career starts against Toronto.

Bolsinger, 29, had a 1.46 ERA with an 18-to-3 K/BB ratio in 12 1/3 Triple-A innings thus far in 2017.

Carrasco will be making his seventh start of the season.

The problem with the veteran Jays catcher first cropped up during spring training but continued to get worse at the season went along and has hindered his movement in his catching arm and hand.

Biagini allowed an unearned run, two hits and struck out four over four innings in his first major league start. He struck out five Detroit Tigers batters his last time out, holding the Motor City Kitties to two runs over six innings. Diaz provides insurance while OF Michael Brantley recovers from a sprained right ankle sustained Sunday.

Yandy Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Monday and started in left field for Cleveland, going 0-for-3 with a walk.
