The Blue Jays are in Baltimore to play our old friends the Orioles, and I’m doing my best to resist making the easy joke about playing with no fans being not all that different to the past couple years.

In Bo Bichette’s absense, Charlie Montoyo explained his plan to fill that role:

Here are today’s lineups. Grichuk stays in the number two slot, Vlad gets a DH day and Panik will start at shortstop.

Today's Lineups

Cavan Biggio - 2B Hanser Alberto - 2B
Randal Grichuk - CF Anthony Santander - RF
Travis Shaw - 3B Renato Nunez - 1B
Teoscar Hernandez - RF Pedro Severino - DH
Rowdy Tellez - 1B Pat Valaika - LF
Vladimir Guerrero - DH Rio Ruiz - 3B
Lourdes Gurriel - LF Bryan Holaday - C
Joe Panik - SS Andrew Velazquez - SS
Danny Jansen - C Cedric Mullins - CF
Hyun-Jin Ryu - LHP Alex Cobb - RHP
