Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there - we appreciate everything you do for us!

Thank you to everyone for all the birthday wishes yesterday. You all know how to make a gal feel loved.

The Jays are looking to prevent the sweep behind Trent Thornton, who was of course drafted and traded by the Astros.

Here are today’s lineups for Father’s Day. Vlad Jr is back in at DH after sitting yesterday with a bruised hand, Smoak is still out with a hamstring injury, and Jansen will catch for Thornton.

Today's Lineups

Eric Sogard - 3B Alex Bregman - 3B
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - DH Michael Brantley - LF
Lourdes Gurriel - LF Yordan Alvarez - DH
Rowdy Tellez - 1B Josh Reddick - RF
Teoscar Hernandez - CF Robinson Chirinos - C
Cavan Biggio - 2B Tyler White - 1B
Randal Grichuk - RF Tony Kemp - 2B
Freddy Galvis - SS Jack Mayfield - SS
Danny Jansen - C Myles Straw - CF


Will any of the sons of famous fathers (Guerrero, Gurriel or Biggio) homer today?
