The scene: bottom of the sixth inning, Blue Jays up 2-1 over the Cardinals. The Jays loaded the bases on back-to-back singles by Anthony Gose and Jose Reyes, and Melky Cabrera reaching on a fielding error by Matt Carpenter. With a 1-2 count against Seth Maness, Jose Bautista ripped a line drive to second baseman Daniel Descalso. Descalso flipped to shortstop Jhonny Peralta at the second base bag for the second out, and Peralta fired the ball to first baseman Allen Craig to complete the triple play.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
