Ailing Josh Donaldson not starting in Blue Jays' home opener

Posted April 12, 2017

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.

Happ is 3-4 with a 6.13 ERA in 11 career games (10 starts) against the Brewers. Donaldson was slow coming off the field and was pulled from the lineup, with Ryan Goins replacing him the next half-inning.

After attending all 39 of the Toronto Blue Jays' home openers, one super fan will be watching at home with his family this year due to the Jewish holiday of Passover.

American Soldier Killed in Afghanistan in Anti-ISIS Operation: US Military
USA officials have said they believe the movement has only 700 fighters but Afghan officials estimate it has about 1,500. A USA soldier was killed during the counter-terrorism operations in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan.

The Brewers will counter with Wily Peralta, who won his first start of the season, against the Colorado Rockies.

Manager John Gibbons said: "It's still hanging around".

"I'm not anxious about it", said Donaldson, who missed time during spring training with a strain in a different area of the calf.

Another positive for Monday's first of two against the Brewers is that closer Roberto Osuna is expected to be activated off the disabled list, a welcome relief for the heavily taxed bullpen. The three-time All-Star and 2015 American League MVP is the key cog for Toronto, and when he isn't on the field, the Blue Jays are a far less risky team. We'll see where he's at tomorrow.

The 2015 AL MVP didn't play his first big league spring training game this year until March 20 because of a strained right calf. In our abbreviated four-game schedule Josh paced the squad with a pair of extra base hits, including a massive solo shot in the eighth inning of Friday's game to bring the Jays within one.

Donaldson, who is batting.348 with two homers and three RBIs, said he was disappointed not to start the home opener but understood the team's decision. "I don't think I'm locating my fastball, but I'm really happy I don't have any pain anymore".
