3B Josh Donaldson

DH Edwin Encarnacion
1B Chris Colabello

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.

SS Alcides Escobar
2B Ben Zobrist
CF Lorenzo Cain
1B Eric Hosmer
DH Kendrys Morales
3B Mike Moustakas

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

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
