Clearly it seems he won't be moved to SS with much regularity, and even if he does get enough starts at SS to get fantasy eligibility, it will take a while.

Yeah, he's not going to be starting at SS with the exception of a few Lilly starts. It's just a question of how many Lilly starts he'll get to play SS by the AS break (when Adams is set to return).

I seriously think McDonald can make a play to be a regular starter for a while if things continue like this, which there's no reason to think he can't do. McDonald's bat is really no worse than what Adams was providing all year (.230), and the Jays were winning plenty of games as it was with that performance and with all those errors.

McDonald got hurt in the 9th, and they brought in that journeyman SS Figeroa. He looked terrible. John better not be out for an extended period of time or else we could be in huge trouble. Glaus might actually have to play every game at SS if we don't have anybody else. :-o

Figueroa looked awful, I agree. He was involved in two defensive plays and one at-bat, and was terrible on all of them. I actually think I'd prefer seeing Glaus at short every day than taking a chance on this guy.. :-o

Not a good ideal...

Glaus will get hurt if he plays a lot of SS... I think people forget how fragile he is.

Just heard - McDonald on the DL with a pulled groin. Edgardo Alfonzo will be up and playing 2B tonight against the Red Sox.

Not good news at all. And even with his .100 average, I still think he will be better than Figueroa.. :-o :-o

Jun 13 Jordan Bastian, of Toronto.BlueJays.MLB.com, reports Toronto Blue Jays 3B Troy Glaus could start at short stop when interleague play begins again Saturday, June 17. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he would like to get more offense in the lineup and he might move Glaus over to short stop and put DH Shea Hillenbrand at third base. If that happens, Gibbons said 2B Russ Adams would start at second base when a right-handed pitcher is on the mound, while SS Aaron Hill would be in the lineup to face left-handers.


Just an update to this story. It looks like Glaus could very well become SS eligible in a few weeks.
