Ailing Josh Donaldson not starting in Blue Jays' home opener

He has averaged over a strikeout an inning in his two campaigns, and his 36 saves in 2016 were sixth most in the American League. "That being said they want to take a little more cautious route than I would want to take", Donaldson said wistfully of the team medical staff.

"He's crushing the ball", Rays centre fielder Kevin Kiermaier said.

Donaldson had eights hits, including two home runs and a double, in 23 at-bats prior to Tuesday. He retired 16 of his last 17 batters. Ryan Braun led the Brewers with a 1 for 4 night with a 3-run home run. After a 2015 campaign in which he compiled a 1-6 record and a 2.58 ERA over 69 appearances, he appeared in 72 games last season and drummed up a 4-3 record and 2.68 ERA.

Five Toronto regulars, Bautista (.136), Tulowitzki (.125), Morales (.208), Devon Travis (.130) and Russell Martin (.000), are hitting.208 or worse. Catch every Blue Jays game, marquee Major League Baseball matchups, the 2017 Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, the playoffs and entire World Series. He struggled at times in his first season back from the injury, putting up a 4.37 ERA, but his FIP (3.71) and Deserved Run Average (3.87) showed he may have been a bit unlucky previous year.

Aaron Sanchez gave up one run on four hits in seven innings in his first start of the season for Toronto. Barring an unexpected development, the 22-year-old closer will be available to make his season debut out of the bullpen against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday.
