The last time -- and only time this season -- that the Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays faced, the sky fell. Literally.
In mid-April, chunks of the Rogers Centre roof fell on the field, postponing one game. The Blue Jays also swept the Royals, something that seems far more notable now that Kansas City has a record nearing some of the worst of all time.
But tonight, to be cliche, is about nothing but new beginnings and the beginning of an era for Toronto. Danny Jansen, one of Toronto's top prospects and within the top 80 prospects in all of baseball, and Sean Reid-Foley, a pitcher at the top of the Blue Jays' charts, are set to make their major league debuts tonight.
The pair is the first battery to be making their debuts together in over 50 years, with the last being on April 14, 1967. After much delay this season, Jansen and Reid-Foley mark the first pair of top prospects to breach the majors, and may not be the last in 2018.
Reid-Foley, currently ranked as number 10 in the Blue Jays' organizational rankings, has been nothing but phenomenal through 2018 to-date. After posting a 2.03 ERA with the double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats over eight starts, Reid-Foley was promoted to triple-A, where he's put up a 3.50 ERA over 82.1 innings. He has a season SO/9 of 10.4.
