6 Comments

Here are the Blue Jays and Royals lineups for Game 1 of the ALCS in Kansas City:

BLUE JAYS:
LF Ben Revere
3B Josh Donaldson
RF Jose Bautista
DH Edwin Encarnacion
1B Chris Colabello
SS Troy Tulowitzki
C Dioner Navarro
CF Kevin Pillar
2B Ryan Goins

SP Marco Estrada

Normally the Blue Jays use Justin Smoak at first base against right-handers, but Chris Colabello is getting the start there in Game 1 after a strong ALDS performance. Marco Estrada’s personal catcher Dioner Navarro is behind the plate instead of Russell Martin.

ROYALS:
SS Alcides Escobar
2B Ben Zobrist
CF Lorenzo Cain
1B Eric Hosmer
DH Kendrys Morales
3B Mike Moustakas
C Salvador Perez
LF Alex Gordon
RF Alex Rios

SP Edinson Volquez

Like last postseason, Royals manager Ned Yost has decided on a playoff lineup and is sticking with it every game.
