The Miami Marlins are heading into Labor Day with a series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
This weekend, WIOD will host aand broadcast Saturday night baseball. The first pitch will be thrown at 7:10 p.m., but live, pregame coverage begins at 6:40 p.m. on WIOD!
The Jays have lost seven straight road games coming into this series; the Marlins are on a three-game losing streak.
Marco Estrada has been dealing with back soreness for the past couple of weeks but is expected to pitch on Saturday, provided he is still with the team.
Estrada, Curtis Granderson, Tyler Clippard, Kendrys Morales and Josh Donaldson have all been rumoured as possible trade chips ahead of Friday’s waiver deadline. These two teams last went head-to-head in June 2015, with Toronto sweeping the three-game series at Rogers Centre.
