Blue Jays 3B Donaldson departs with calf injury

Small New Brunswick community 'in shock' after fire kills 4

Also, Jesús Aguilar starts at first base, meaning former Blue Jays draftee Eric Thames opens the game on the bench.

They hope to turn things around at the Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons isn't swinging the bat these days, but he fills out the lineup card and sets the batting order for every game. "Maybe that's the energy and spark we need".

The Blue Jays' bullpen will see its share of turnover this year, especially considering that the group includes an assortment of relievers with options.

But this year, in the Jays' 40th year, the home opener falls on the Jewish holiday of Passover and, as Nelson says with a smile: "God told us not to go". "Then we ran into a good offense in the Cubs the last two games". It is his eighth stint with Milwaukee since his big-league debut May 26, 2015.

'Bomb' found in city raid
St Petersburg is still reeling after a bomb ripped through the city's metro on Monday, killing 14 people and injuring 50. The suspected bomber was identified as Kyrgyz-born Akbarjon Djalilov, a Russian citizen who was born in 1995.

The biggest issue for the Blue Jays was their inability to hit with runners on base.

Now in addition to the quiet bats, there is some concern with Donaldson who pulled up with a sore calf on Sunday in Tampa. He said his favourite part about going to the games is being in the atmosphere with family and friends.

"They wanted to take a little bit more of a cautious route than I wanted to take", Donaldson said. With Wily Peralta set to face J.A. Happ in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 9 runs. Marco Estrada took his first loss of the season giving up 5 earned runs on 7 hits while striking out 5 over 5 innings.

Peralta's well-connected: Brewers starter Wily Peralta went 17-11 in 2014, but logged only 12 wins against 21 losses in the two following seasons. Toronto comes into this series at 1-5, but again like the Brewers, have been competitive just about every night. He pitched five scoreless innings on April 5 in a 6-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies. "Geno was in that Triple-A league [the NL] when I had my best years so he doesn't really know what I can do". There's a lot of guys with tremendous upside. The Jays couldn't manage to push across many runs, getting just 3 in the two game series. And there's no panic in here.
