Roy Halladay was sitting at his locker at Safeco Field today, wearing a wrap on his elbow to help treat the joint after he got hit by a line drive on Sunday. Halladay said the swelling is down and he’ll try to play catch on Tuesday. If all goes well, he doesn’t see why he couldn’t start as scheduled on Friday in Toronto. So let out the sigh of relief Jays fans, Halladay is doing better.
Alex Rios is still out of the lineup with a bone bruise in his right hand and Jays manager John Gibbons wasn’t sure if he’d play during the series in Seattle. Today’s lineup against the M’s: Johnson, RF, Catalanotto, LF, Wells, CF, Glaus, 3B, Molina, C, Overbay, 1B, Hill, 2B, Lind, DH, McDonald, SS.
This is my first trip to Safeco Field and I’ve got to tell you, it’s quickly climbing up my personal rankings of the stadiums I’ve been to. It’s a beautiful facility in a beautiful city. I’ve only been here since this morning, but Im really enjoying Seattle so far.
That’s really all I’ve got for you at the moment. I just wanted to toss a quick Halladay update on here for you all. Ah, one more thing. In case you were curious which Toronto farmhands were playing in the Arizona Fall League, here is the list:
Pitchers: Jordan De Jong, Danny Hill, Tracy Thorpe, Kyle Yates
Catchers: Curtis Thigpen
Infielders: Chip Cannon, Ryan Klosterman
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more…
