Vladimir Guerrero Jr chats with Mike Trout and Albert Pujols before the start of Game 1 in Anaheim, CA

I see the Blue Jays are trying that thing they did last year for a bit, where they would only sweep or get swept. With that said, it would be great not to get swept today.

The team will have to try to do that without Vlad Jr in the line-up, as Charlie Montoyo is giving him a day off:

Here is tonight’s Vladito-less lineup. Sogard is back in the lead off spot, Hanson gets the start in right, and Jansen will catch for Aaron Sanchez.

Today's Lineups

BLUE JAYS ANGELS
Eric Sogard - 2B Tommy La Stella - 3B
Freddy Galvis - SS Mike Trout - CF
Randal Grichuk - CF Brian Goodwin - LF
Justin Smoak - 1B Andrelton Simmons - SS
Brandon Drury - 3B Albert Pujols - DH
Rowdy Tellez - DH Kole Calhoun - RF
Teoscar Hernandez - LF Kevan Smith - C
