The long weekend is officially underway, but it is currently 33C here and I’m melting.

The Jays have another opportunity to pull ahead in the second place race with the Yankees. After a double header yesterday, a couple regulars are sitting out today but hopefully they can still pull out a win.

Caleb Joseph has been added to the roster and Reese McGuire has been optioned down.

Here are today’s lineups. With Biggio out, Villar is leading off, Vlad plays first and Derek Fisher gets another start.

Today's Lineups

BLUE JAYS RED SOX
Jonathan Villar - SS Alex Verdugo - RF
Randal Grichuk - CF Rafael Devers - 3B
Rowdy Tellez - DH Xander Bogaerts - SS
