We have another rubber match today as the Jays look to take their second straight series from the Yankees.

Unfortunately, the injuries keep piling on as Julian Merryweather is now on the IL with an oblique strain (Anthony Castro is up in his place), and TJ Zeuch is now starting today in place of Ross Stripling who couldn’t get his arm loose.

Here are today’s lineups. No Stanton or Lemahieu for the Yankees, Vladdy gets a DH day, and Kirk will catch for Zeuch.

Today's Lineups

Aaron Hicks - CF Marcus Semien - 2B
Aaron Judge - RF Bo Bichette - SS
Brett Gardner - LF Vladimir Guerrero - DH
Gary Sanchez - DH Randal Grichuk - CF
Gleyber Torres - SS Cavan Biggio - 3B
Jay Bruce - 1B Lourdes Gurriel - LF
Gio Urshela - 3B Rowdy Tellez - 1B
Rougned Odor - 2B Alejandro Kirk - C
Kyle Higashioka - C Josh Palacios - RF
Corey Kluber - RHP T.J. Zeuch - RHP
