Monday's Royals game in doubt due to Toronto ice

Compared to his total season slash line of.217/.322/.496, Duda thrived hitting against left-handed pitchers on the road a year ago, putting up a slash line of.271/.357/.625 across 56 such plate appearances.

Right-hander Aaron Sanchez will get the start for Toronto on Wednesday.

"Perhaps this potential postponement is karma, because the Blue Jays have done a lot of bragging about having a roof, particularly after having games postponed in Cleveland", Grathoff wrote a couple of hours before the team confirmed that Monday's game was a no-go.

It was a rare doubleheader Tuesday in Toronto, as the Blue Jays swept the Kansas City Royals. The Royals have been outscored 29-13 during their five-game skid. Moustakas is slashing.327/.352/.596 with 17 hits, nine RBIs and nine runs scored, while Duda is slashing.282/.349/.436 with 11 hits, two homers, eight RBIs and four runs scored. I think the biggest thing is I'm just swinging at strikes.

Coli outbreak across 7 states
Health officials are investigating a Panera Bread in Phillipsburg, New Jersey after a cluster of E. coli illnesses were reported. Consumers who have store-bought chopped romaine lettuce should not eat it and throw it away immediately, the CDC said .

The Blue Jays had a game postponed on April 12, 2001 when a mechanical test caused damage to one of the roof panels. The teams have not announced when they'll make a decision.

The weather has been wreaking havoc with MLB's schedule during the early going of the 2018 season.

Factoring in the team's scheduled off day last Thursday, the Blue Jays have played exactly one game in the last five days. The since-deleted tweet, which included a winking emoji, read: "Weather update: Due to our stadium having a roof, today's game will be ..."

Abraham Almonte homered in the sixth, the first home run this season from a Royals player other than Moustakas or Duda.

Super Eagles of Nigeria up 5 places in new FIFA Ranking
Qatar is ready to host the World in 2022, setting the record of the first nation to stage the tournament in the Middle East. The FIFA World Cup defending champions, Germany held on to the top spot on the log, despite a draw and defeat in March.

Blue Jays: C Russell Martin and 2B Devon Travis started the opener but sat out the nightcap, the only two changes Toronto made to its lineup. The Jays will play at 3:07 p.m. ET and then against at 7:07 ET. The biggest hole, over right field, was roughly 3 feet by 5 feet.

Hold: Oh (1). Inherited runners-scored: Smith 3-3.

I do not see this as being a good series for the Kansas City Royals. There will be a doubleheader on Tuesday.
