Nathan Lukes is in the lineup for his first MLB start.
With a few guys not hitting, if Lukes has a good day with the bat, he might be in line for more playing time. Merrifield plays second and Kiermaier bats eighth, instead of ninth. Kirk catches Berrios.

Max Scherzer was ejected from his start this afternoon. He took it well....

The Mets won, despite Max being tossed in the third inning. I’d suggest the Jays get a long man in case a starter gets tossed early at some point.
