A quick turnaround after a very long day yesterday for the team. I hope everyone is well caffeinated. When I was pulling the lineups, I noticed this is the earliest MLB game today by 3 hours. Hopefully the thunderstorms hold off.
Gibbons said Stroman is headed to the DL and Thomas Pannone will likely come back up to take his next start at home against the Orioles.
Here are the lineups for today. McKinney leads off and plays left field in his Blue Jays debut, while Teoscar shifts to right field. Jansen is back in catching, and Diaz and Ureña play third and shortstop again.
|Billy McKinney - LF||Brett Gardner - LF|
|Devon Travis - 2B||Giancarlo Stanton - DH|
|Curtis Granderson - DH||Aaron Hicks - CF|
|Justin Smoak - 1B||Didi Gregorius - SS|
|Kevin Pillar - CF||Miguel Andujar - 3B|
|Teoscar Hernandez - RF||Gleyber Torres - 2B|
|Danny Jansen - C||Greg Bird - 1B|
|Aledmys Diaz - 3B||Neil Walker - RF|
|Richard Urena - SS||Austin Romine - C|
