Sanchez happy to be back for Jays home opener

The outfielder hit a three-run homer and was involved in a scrum after a slide during the Rays' 7-2 victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Tulowitzki felt the slide was late.

"I'm not anxious about it", said Donaldson, who missed time during spring training with a strain in a different area of the calf. However, Baltimore hit two home runs, a two run shot by Adam Jones in the third and a solo shot by Chris Davis in the fourth.

Nelson was in attendance when the Jays won the World Series in 1992 and then again in '93 and has kept the hope alive ever since. He has faced Toronto once in his career, allowing four earned runs in six innings in a no-decision in 2014. The 27-year-old Peralta spends his winters in his native Dominican Republic, where, according to the Brewers' media guide, he plays slow-pitch softball alongside Bartolo Colon and Nelson Cruz, on a team stacked with big leaguers.

The Toronto Blue Jays will look to rebound from a horrific 1-5 start to the season after dropping the last 3 games of their series against Tampa Bay, including a 7-2 defeat in the series finale.

"We should feel good".

The team also said closer Roberto Osuna was activated off the 10-day disabled list and was available to play against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Rays: OF Colby Rasmus (hip surgery) missed a third straight game on his rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte due to knee soreness stemming from a collision in the outfield Thursday night.

The Toronto Blue Jays' home opener finally arrives tonight after winning just one game in six tries on the team's road trip to start the season. Though it was cold and snowing that day, Nelson took his wife and their three children, and started what has become a family tradition.

As for the Brewers they began their season at home with a 4 game series against the Colorado Rockies, they dropped 3 of 4 in that set.

Lawrence didn't exactly fare well with Toronto - he surrendered 3 runs to the tune of 3 hits and 5 walks over 2.0 innings pitched.
