No Rowdy Tellez in the lineup tonight, with Carlos Santana occupying first base and Mark Canha — who had an excellent September for Milwaukee after coming over from the Mets at the deadline — serving as the DH and batting cleanup. Rookie Sal Frelick gets the nod in center against a righty while Garrett Mitchell sits and Tyrone Taylor will play right. (Yankees fans, please don’t pay attention to the fact that Josh Donaldson is starting in a playoff game.)
