With Saunders slumping poorly this month, batting just .154, and the Blue Jays playing for the post season, Michael Saunders will sit for the second straight day on Saturday. Once again Jose Bautista will get the start in right field, while Edwin Encarnacion takes on the DH responsibilities.
As the Detroit Tigers wrap up their season at a National League park, Victor Martinez will sit for another night as there is no need for a DH. He has started some games at first base this season, but it's very unlikely he'll get the nod over Miguel Cabrerra, especially with a playoff berth on the line.
As the Tigers close out their regular season at a National League park, catcher James McCann will get the night off to rest Saturday as he is not in the starting lineup. He will be replaced behind the dish by Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who will also be batting eighth in the order.
