Toronto returns Guerrero to first base…Heinemann to catcher


The Toronto Blue Jays have announced their starting lineup.

The Toronto Blue Jays have announced their starting lineup for today’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

They announced the following lineup: George Springer (designated hitter), Bo Bissett (shortstop), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (first base), Cavan Biggio (right field), Matt Chapman (third base), Dalton Bashaw (left field), Davis Schneider (second base), Kevin Kiermaier (center field), and Tyler Heinemann (catcher). The starting pitcher will be Hyun-jin Ryu.

Guerrero Jr. returns to the starting lineup after shaking off a knee injury the day before, this time at first base.

Manager John Schneider said in his pregame interview the day before that he expected Guerrero Jr. to see first base a day later, and that’s exactly what happened.온라인바카라

Springer will hang up his glove for the day and play designated hitter. Biggio, who made a diving catch to save Ryu in his last outing, is in right field.

Outfielder Kiermaier, who came off the bench the day before, will start in center field against his hometown team, Tampa Bay.

Heinemann, who was benched the day before, will wear the catcher’s mask.

Heinemann has been filling in for Ryu since Danny Jansen went down with an injury. The team has been pleased with their chemistry.

In his three starts with Heinemann, Ryu has a 2.87 ERA (5 earned runs in 15 2/3 innings).
