Sean Rodriguez is at first base, Jose Tabata is in right, Jung Ho Kang is at third base, Jordy Mercer is at shortstop and Josh Harrison is at second base.

Insight: Travis had already missed five games in a row, so this wasn't a big surprise. He's been a very good fantasy asset this season, batting .271 with seven homers, 26 RBI and 24 runs. Steve Tolleson has been getting Travis' playing time.
Description: Blue Jays second baseman Devon Travis (shoulder) is out of the lineup again on Tuesday.
Insight: He left Saturday's game with the issue and it seems Toronto is being cautious. Consider Travis day-to-day. Steve Tolleson, who has back-to-back multi-hit games, will play second and bat eighth.

Insight: The 21-year-old Odor was horrible this spring, batting .144 with a .486 OPS. He batted .59 last season with nine homers and 48 RBI. Hopefully he can reinvigarate his career at Triple-A.
