It looks like there has been a change in starting pitcher for tonight. I thought Matt Shoemaker was to start, but now the Blue Jays are saying T.J. Zeuch gets the start.
I hope there isn’t a injury reason for the switch. Charlie Montoyo is to talk to the media soon so we’ll hear why the change was made.
Bo Bichette and Randal Grichuk both sit today. Joe Panik plays short and Jonathan Davis is in center.

No injury to Shoemaker:
All's well with Matt Shoemaker, per Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo. Club held him out of today's start to preserve rotation options for wild card series. He threw a side session instead.— Arden Zwelling (@ArdenZwelling) September 26, 2020
