Jose Bautista is back in the Blue Jays’ lineup

9 Comments

After missing the past three games with an ankle injury Jose Bautista is back in Toronto’s lineup at designated hitter for today’s game against the Tigers.

Bautista tweaked his ankle sliding into second base Thursday and Rajai Davis filled in for him in right field during the three-game weekend series versus Boston.

Adam Lind is the odd man out this afternoon, moving to the bench to make room for Bautista at DH. Lind is off to a 1-for-16 start despite striking out just once so far.

The Yankees have announced an investment partnership with Vision Esports. Vision Esports is the largest single shareholder of three esports-related companies, which includes Echo Fox, Twin Galaxies, and Vision Entertainment. The size of the investment was not disclosed.

Echo Fox was founded by former NBA player Rick Fox. The team has players from some of the most popular titles, including League of Legends, Call of Duty, Street Fighter, and Super Smash Bros.

Twin Galaxies tracks retro video game world records. Vision Entertainment creates esports content across various platforms.

This is not the first intersection of baseball and esports. Earlier this year, pitcher Trevor May joined esports team Luminosity. Other teams, particularly in the NBA, have gotten involved in esports. Last year, the Philadelphia 76ers acquired esports teams Dignitas and Apex.
