The Blue Jays will welcome the Astros and one of their recently traded pitchers in Joe Biagini to the Rogers Center this weekend for the second to last series of the season that isn’t against an AL East team. It’s also Star Wars night, so May the Force Be With You, Blue Jays.

Here are today’s lineups. Smoak will DH, Drury will get a start at 1st, and Derek Fisher will have the opportunity to get revenge against the team that traded him with a start in left field.
