Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak has been scratched with a sore neck for the second straight day, the team announced. 

Rowdy Tellez will play first base and bat fifth, while Billy McKinney bats third and assumes the DH role. 

In seven games so far this season, Smoak is hitting .200 with one home run and four RBI.

The Jays will send Trent Thornton to the hill in Cleveland against Shane Bieber.
