MLB: Minnesota Twins at Kansas City Royals Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are going for the series win. I much prefer this over trying to avoid the sweep. Sammy G is still looking for his first win since May.

This post is up early again for live Vlad Jr banter.

We have some injury updates:

Josh Donaldson: Will continue base running (subject to gravity and all)

Aaron Sanchez: No issues with his finger in start yesterday, will pitch again early next week

Yangervis Solarte: Out at least three weeks but will join the team in Toronto next week

Here are tonight’s lineups. Danny Jansen is back in and batting 7th, Travis is back at second, Diaz plays third, and Ureña gets another start, this time at shortstop.
