ALCS Game 2 starting lineups: Blue Jays vs. Indians

October 15th, 2016

CLEVELAND -- has been moved up to fifth in the Blue Jays' batting order for Saturday's Game 2 of the American League Championship Series (4 p.m. ET on TBS, as well as Sportsnet and RDS in Canada).

Catcher was dropped to sixth after spending most of the final two months of the regular season hitting fifth. The move comes one day after Martin went 0-for-2 with runners in scoring position during the first three innings of Game 1.

Tulowitzki entered play on Saturday with seven hits in 21 at-bats during this postseason. Martin has one hit in 20 at-bats. It's a continuation of September, when Toronto's starting catcher posted a .609 OPS compared to Tulowitzki's .704.

"We've been talking for a while; as a coach or manager you sit there, and you watch every day who's hot and who's not -- that kind of thing," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "But I also believe we've been on a nice roll, winning a lot of games on a nice little streak. I've watched it and experienced it -- when things are going good, don't mess with things. Tulo has been hot, so we'll just flip those today, since we got beat last night."
