Toronto Blue Jays
Probable Lineup
No. Player Pos.
1. Yunel Escobar SS
2. Kelly Johnson 2B
3. Jose Bautista RF
4. Adam Lind 1B
5. Edwin Encarnacion DH
6. Colby Rasmus CF
7. Brett Lawrie 3B
8. Eric Thames LF
9. J.P. Arencibia C


Looks like Rasmus will be batting 9th today and everyone else will be bumped up in the order. So Lawrie is hitting 6th.

Rotoworld says he's batting 3rd.

Brett Lawrie is batting third for the Blue Jays on Opening Day against the Indians.
And Jose Bautista is batting fourth. It's an aggressive setup, but one that the Jays are probably hoping can stick for a long, long time. Lawrie, 22, batted .293/.373/.580 with nine homers, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 43 games last season.

Conflicting reports according to https://twitter.com/#!/ShiDavidi

ays lineup in pressbox has Lawrie 3rd. Jays tweet this order: Escobar 6 Johnson 4 Bautista 9 Lind 3 EE 0 Lawrie 5 Thames 7 JPA 2 Rasmus 9


I'm guessing @BlueJays twitter feed is right, unless there was a late change they didn't get. Clubhouse opens in 30 mins or so. We'll see.


Only on opening day am I this excited about lineups! :-D

Either way, he'll be batting 3rd in no time. B-)

I agree, I have never been so exited over starting lineups. :-D

From Rotoworld:

Brett Lawrie is batting third in the Blue Jays' lineup on Opening Day against the Indians.
And Jose Bautista is batting fourth. It's an aggressive setup, but one that the Jays are probably hoping can stick for a long, long time. Lawrie, 22, batted .293/.373/.580 with nine home runs, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 43 games last season. He should be a highly valuable fantasy third baseman in 2012.

Lawrie is 100% hitting 6th according to multiple sources now. I wonder who trolled rotoworld in to believing that? Unless the Jays trade for Pujols there is 0% chance Bautista isn't hitting 3rd. :-b

I saw 3rd and came for nothing... now I've gotta clean this mess up... Still I'm fine with 6th for now. He hit fine there last year.
