The Jays are looking to bounce back from a rough one yesterday and even up the series. Thankfully, Bo Bichette is back, which will go a long way to making that happen. Jacob has been sent waguespacking once again after valiantly eating some innings yesterday.

Since it’s a day that ends in y, we have some injury updates:

Here are today’s lineups. Bichette is back at shortstop and batting second, Alejandro Kirk will make his major league debut as catcher, batting 8th, and Cavan Biggio gets another start in right.

Today's Lineups

Jeff McNeil - LF Cavan Biggio - RF
J.D. Davis - 3B Bo Bichette - SS
