OOTP Season Sim Game 54: Jays beat Rays (Bluebird Banter)

Yesterday was an off-day for the Blue Jays.

Before the game, the Jays made a roster move. Anthony Alford was designated for assignment and put on waivers. And Teoscar Hernandez was recalled from Buffalo.

Alford was hitting .191/.269/.277 with 1 home run, 1 steal and one caught stealing. He has a -0.1 WAR. He was mostly used as a defensive replacement, until Hernandez was sent down to Buffalo. After that he got more starts.

Hernandez wasn’t doing much better than Alford in Buffalo. He hit .196/.293/.275 with 1 home run in 13 games for the Bisons. The game does use ‘morale’ as a factor in the game, and I’d imagine Teoscar wouldn’t be happy in Buffalo. With the Jays, before the demotion, he was hitting .257/.329/.543 with 11 home runs in 38 games.

Blue Jays 7 Rays 2

The Jays get a win in Tropicana Field.

Shun Yamaguchi gave us a good start. 7 innings, just 4 hits, 2 earned, 4 walks and 6 strikeouts. He gave up a home run to Mike Zunino.

Jordan Romano pitched 1.2 innings, giving up a hit and 2 walks and Wilmer Font got the last out of the game.

On offense, we had 12 hits, including homers from Cavan Biggio and Travis Shaw. Randal Grichuk had 3 hits. Lourdes…
