    Birds Home Opener: Brewers @ Jays Game 1 of 2 7:07 PM EST

    Toronto Blue Jays Line-up...

    1. Devon Travis (R) 2B
    2. Jose Bautista (R) RF
    3. Kendrys Morales (S) DH
    4. Troy Tulowitzki (R) SS
    5. Russell Martin (R) C
    6. Justin Smoak (S) 1B
    7. Steve Pearce (R) LF
    8. Kevin Pillar (R) CF
    9. Ryan Goins (L) 3B

    SP J.A. Happ LHP...

    Happ tossed seven strong innings in his last start, allowing just three earned runs, but he was undone by a bloop and a blast vs. Baltimore. Adam Jones hit the decisive two-run homer, but it also went just 344 feet.

    Milwaukee Brewers Line-up...

    1. Jonathan Villar (S) 2B
    2. Keon Broxton (R) CF
    3. Ryan Braun (R) LF
    4. Travis Shaw (L) DH
    5. Domingo Santana (R) RF
    6. Jesus Aguilar (R) 1B
    7. Hernan Perez (R) 3B
    8. Manny Pina (R) C
    9. Orlando Arcia (R) SS

    SP Wily Peralta RHP...

    Peralta surged to the finish last season thanks in part to a few extra ticks on his fastball, which he attributed to improved mechanics. His second pitch of 2017 registered 98.8 mph, a good sign he carried those mechanics into this season.

    Game Notes...

    The Blue Jays expect to get closer Roberto Osuna back from the 10-day disabled list in time for their home opener on Tuesday, when the Brewers make a rare Interleague visit to Rogers Centre.

    Osuna has mostly been sidelined since returning from the World Baseball Classic with neck spasms. He threw a side session at Tropicana Field on Saturday and was declared good to go beginning on Tuesday, when Wily Peralta starts for Milwaukee opposite Toronto's J.A. Happ.

    "I feel bad to have let my teammates down for 10 days, but I think I'm going to come back stronger," Osuna said. "That's what I have on my mind, and obviously trying to be 100 percent and help the team to win games."

    Osuna picked a good time to make a comeback. Tuesday marks the Blue Jays' 41st home opener, and their 28th at Rogers Centre. The stadium, originally called SkyDome, hosted its first Major League game on June 5, 1989 -- a 5-3 Brewers win over the Blue Jays. Gary Sheffield's first-inning groundout scored Paul Molitor for SkyDome's first run before the Blue Jays' Fred McGriff hit the stadium's first homer in the fourth inning. Glenn Braggs also homered that day for Milwaukee.

    The Brewers were regular visitors until they moved to the National League in 1988. Since then, the teams' meetings have been more sporadic, with the Brewers visiting in 2005 and '14, and the Blue Jays going to Miller Park in '07 and '12.

    When the teams last met for two games at Rogers Centre in 2014, the Blue Jays swept the series.

    "It's going to be amazing. I really miss that place," Osuna said of his return to action. "I think it's going to be a good season. Gearing up for everybody, so I'm really excited about that."
    Things to know about this game

    The Brewers were back to full strength when outfielders Ryan Braun and Keon Broxton returned to the starting lineup on Sunday after injury scares. Their health will help cover Milwaukee's first two games of the season with the designated hitter rule in play.
    Braun was a late scratch on Saturday with a stiff lower back. Broxton was out of the lineup on Friday and Saturday, though he was able to come off the bench to play in both games, after being hit in the head by a pitch on Thursday.
    "We're very fortunate, and it's remarkable," manager Craig Counsell said of Broxton's quick return to action. "I'm glad it worked out that we were able to get him some at-bats but kind of keep him out of full-time action. Now he's back in there, ready to go."

    Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was off to a slow start this season, but he rakes against the Brewers. In 207 plate appearances, he owns a .407/.469/.720 slash line with 12 home runs. His 1.188 OPS is Tulowitzki's best mark against any team.

    Brewers starter Wily Peralta has not allowed a run in his last 14 regular-season innings dating to last year. As of Sunday, that was the sixth-longest scoreless streak for any Major League pitcher. In Peralta's first 13 starts of 2016, opponents had a 90.8 mph average exit velocity against him on batted balls, and he allowed 19 barrels. But in 11 starts since his August return from Triple-A, including a scoreless first outing of 2017, the hard-throwing righty has held hitters to an average exit velocity of 87.8 mph, with just nine barrels allowed.

    LETS GO BLUE JAYS *CLAP, CLAP* *CLAP, CLAP, CLAP*

    LETS GO BLUE JAYS *CLAP, CLAP* *CLAP, CLAP, CLAP*

    hope the Jays can put on a show for the sell crowd at the RC tonight.

    another night of Tablerisms.


    Tabler will get this in before first pitch "This is what they practiced for all spring"

    Peralta has been pretty good his past dozen starts. I'm kind of worried about this game.

    Available off the bench according to Hazel Mae, although Josh is talking now, it doesn't sound that way, he wants to play, but...

    Sportsnet is unironically airing a baseball panel of Arash Madani, Damien Cox and John Shannon.

    They need Barry Davis back asap. That's a sad panel.

    Too bad The Score isn't around. I think Barry would fit well with the hip dynamic they had going.

    Well I guess it's Sportsnet 360 or whatever. But they're broadcasting from the RC and it's awful!
