Now that the Yankees have clinched a postseason spot, it’s time to play out the string. Including tonight, seven games remain and the only thing left to play for is seeding. First place in the division technically isn’t out of the question, but making up 3.5 games on Tampa Bay is highly unlikely. That leaves the focus on the fourth seed, which the Yankees (31-22) currently trail the Twins (33-22) for. Yankees-Twins will be the first round matchup in all likelihood, but where those games will be played has yet to be determined. Tonight, the Yankees can continue to make a push for home field advantage. Here are the lineups for tonight’s game in Buffalo:

New York Yankees (31-22)

  1. DJ LeMahieu, 2B
  2. Aaron Judge, RF
  3. Giancarlo Stanton, DH
  4. Luke Voit, 1B
  5. Gleyber Torres, SS
  6. Aaron Hicks, CF
  7. Gio Urshela, 3B
  8. Gary Sánchez, C
  9. Brett Gardner, LF

Toronto Blue Jays (27-26)

  1. Cavan Biggio, 3B
