The Minnesota Twins, who were recently swept by the Royals, are in town for a three game series as the Blue Jays go for their fourth straight win.
At the start of the season, many were predicting the 2nd wild card spot would likely to go to one of these two teams (or the Angels). My how things have changed.
The Jays are starting Luis Santos, which says a lot about their evaluation of Jaime Garcia.
Here are the lineups for tonight. Grichuk and Gurriel will form our one two punch again, and Luke Maile will catch this bullpen game.
|MINNESOTA TWINS||TORONTO BLUE JAYS|
|Joe Mauer - 1B||Randal Grichuk - CF|
|Eddie Rosario - LF||Lourdes Gurriel - SS|
|Eduardo Escobar - 3B||Justin Smoak - 1B|
|Brian Dozier - 2B||Teoscar Hernandez - LF|
|Logan Morrison - DH||Yangervis Solarte - 3B|
|Jorge Polanco - SS||Kendrys Morales - DH|
|Max Kepler - CF||Devon Travis - 2B|
|Mitch Garver - C||Dwight Smith - RF|
|Robbie Grossman - RF||Luke Maile - C|
|Adalberto Mejia - LHP||Luis Santos - RHP|
GO JAYS GO!
