Every day that the Blue Jays are at home, early arrivals to the Rogers Centre can see second baseman Devon Travis out on the field mid-afternoon, taking groundballs, taking batting practice, testing his wounded knee - in, out, stops, starts - in an attempt to get back on the diamond as soon as possible. The 26-year-old future star has been on the disabled list since June 6 with yet another injury that has frustrated him and stunted his career.
CHICAGO—The results of this weekend’s three-game series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field will not make or break the Blue Jays’ chances of remaining a peripheral wild-card hopeful into September. However in facing the World Series champs, the results — good or bad — will surely have an effect on the Jays’ collective psyche. The Cubs are reigning champions and though they are struggling to repeat, there is a certain aura about meeting the champs in their own building.
The Blue Jays can't be exactly sure whether they are in or out of the wild-card race but one thing of which they seem certain is that right-hander Marco Estrada will be part of their rotation as long as they have a playoff pulse. A report in the hours leading up to Estrada's start against the Rays on Tuesday declared that the back-and-forth veteran right-hander had been claimed on revocable waivers from the Jays by an unidentified team.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
