Game 36, Mariners at Blue Jays

Christian Bergman vs. Joe Biagini, 4:00

I’m off in Eastern Washington this weekend, so we’re going to be light on details. That’s probably ok for a match up featuring a minor league signing in Bergman and a 2015 Rule 5 reliever in Biagini.

Biagini, whom the Jays plucked from the Giants org, was fantastic last year out of the pen, finishing with a sub-3.00. He’s been great this year too, but the Jays rotation is as best up as the M’s, and Biagini has three/four pitches, so they’re giving a chance to start. This’ll be his second big league start. The first lasted ~50 pitches, and this one’s scheduled for about 70.

Biagini throws in the low 90s, and has a real over the top delivery, though he gets a bit more run than you’d think, given his release point. Whether it’s the armside run or the vaunted ‘downward plane,’ Biagini is a real ground ball maven, despite above average ‘rise.’

    So I take it the offense was stopped at the border as well.

    No roster moves today. I presume that Dipoto took today off to travel to his mother’s house for Mothers’ Day.
