Yesterday was Charlie Monotoyo’s first game as a major league manager, and tonight we may be treated to his first ejection because Angel Hernandez will be the home plate umpire.

Hopefully the Jays will score their first run of the season, then a bunch more after that.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Smoak and Hernandez have swapped spots in the order, Grichuk will DH and McKinney will get his first start of the season. Maile will catch for Matt Shoemaker, who will be making his Blue Jays debut.

Today's Lineups
