    Its a weird concept but only makes sense if 1. the batter protecting can actually hit/legit threat and 2. the batter being protected has good plate discipline.
    In this case, I am not really sure either is in play lol; Bo is hitting though, so who knows.

    As seen in other lineups though (Trout and Judge), they are doing demonic things because of two players behind them that are threats. So hopefully (aside from getting more ABs), this also gives Vladdy more pitches to hit. He has to be willing to take a walk though and not trying to carry the team by himself every AB.

    All things considered, I wonder if its beneficial for Jays/Springer long term to move him off CF to LF/RF or DH, even. Protect his injury-prone body as much as possible so his bat stays in the lineup.

    Jesus, NOBODY mentioned that Thornton was sent down? I figured that would have been celebrated.

    Anyway, Thornton and Heineman to AAA, Jansen and Ryu activated.

    I saw that earlier and danced a little jig.

    Wtf is this lineup? Chapman leading off, he literally has one of the worst OBPs on the team.

    I wouldn’t mind seeing him in RF soon.

    Surprised he didn't put Tapia leading off but instead put Chapman instead.

    Wouldn't Espinal make more sense batting lead off rather than Chapman? Maybe Chapman has good career numbers vs Yarborough.

    That seems to be the logic behind it.

    Chapman has a 10.5% career walk rate, this is fine.

    Can't overstate what a big deal it would be if Ryu is actually somehow OK again.

    I'm pretty excited to have Jansen back. Takes the pressure off Kirk so maybe he can focus on his hitting. Should help some of the pitchers a lot as Jansen just outclasses Kirk and Collins on D. And Jansen's bat looks interesting this year.

    Collins filled in admirably and as long as he's on the roster having a left handed pinch hit option with pop is nice

    So there are some downstream effects. Having him back and productive could help in a couple other ways
