Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Sitting Wednesday
Smoak is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.
Smoak will cede first base to the recently recalled Rowdy Tellez in the series finale, and it's unclear if there will be room for both players in the lineup on an everyday basis. Per Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca, manager Charlie Montoyo said Tuesday that Tellez "will get a lot of playing time" following his promotion, which may leave Smoak and Brandon Drury to contend for the remaining spot in the starting nine in most games. Though he's largely struggled in the second half, Smoak has helped his cause by showing slightly better form at plate of late, tallying seven hits -- including a home run and two doubles -- in 26 at-bats over the past seven games.
