The Jays are going for the 4 game sweep, which would be their first at Yankee Stadium since 2003. I hope everyone is doing exactly the same thing as they’ve been doing for the last three games.

We have a couple small updates:

George Springer feeling better today per manager Charlie Montoyo. Taking BP now. “There’s a chance he could play tomorrow.”

Charlie Montoyo said Nate Pearson and Julian Merryweather could see high leverage today with Romano down. Sounds like Richards & Cimber may be down too. Tim Mayza lined up for high leverage as well of course. “He might close today,” Montoyo said.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Kevin Smith gets a start at 3rd, Grichuk will play center, and Kirk will DH.
