We always come to expect the unexpected at the House of Horrors, so naturally today is no different as Brandon Drury will be playing shortstop for the third time in his major league career. Cool cool.

In today’s reliever shuffle, Justin Shafer has been added to the major league roster, and Zac Rosscup has been DFA’d.

Here are today’s lineups. Galvis gets a day off, home run hero of yesterday Jonathan Davis gets another start in CF, and Danny Jansen will catch for Clayton Richard. Cavan Biggio has been sent home with the flu.

Today's Lineups

Eric Sogard - 2B Avisail Garcia - DH
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B Tommy Pham - LF
Justin Smoak - 1B Austin Meadows - RF
Rowdy Tellez - DH Willy Adames - SS
Randal Grichuk - RF Travis d'Arnaud - C
Lourdes Gurriel - LF Daniel Robertson - 3B
Brandon Drury - SS Ji-Man Choi - 1B
