The Blue Jays get a Brazilian

Baseball player that is. What they do with their bikini line is their own business.

The Blue Jays just announced that they have demoted the struggling Adam Lind to triple-A Las Vegas and have called up Yan Gomes to take his place. The Jays say that, once Gomes plays in the game, he’ll be the first Brazilian player to ever play in the majors, which is really cool.

Lind has been stinkin’ up the joint, batting .186/.273/.314.  Gomes, 24, is on his second go-around at triple-A. He’s been tearing up the pea patch, batting .359/.391/.565.  He’s mostly a catcher but has played a little first and third base and will likely DH a bit.
