Marco Estrada

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

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.

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

SP Edinson Volquez

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