GameThread Game #54: Marlins at Blue Jays

MLB: Miami Marlins at Toronto Blue Jays Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are going for the (short) sweep. We will take it.

It’s a happy day, as it’s Alek Manoah day. Let’s hope his second start is as good as his first.

AJ Cole has been placed on the injured list with a sore neck, and Jeremy Beasley has been recalled to take his spot. That leaves a very interesting set of relievers in the ‘pen outside of Dolis, Romano and Chatwood.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Reese McGuire starts on back-to-back days, Panik bats 6th, and Rowdy will play 1st.

Today's Lineups

Jazz Chisholm - SS Marcus Semien - 2B
Starling Marte - CF Bo Bichette - SS
Jesus Aguilar - 1B Vladimir Guerrero - DH
Garrett Cooper - DH Teoscar Hernandez - RF
Corey Dickerson - LF Randal Grichuk - CF

Jorge Alfaro - C Rowdy Tellez - 1B
