Angels Vs. Jays Starting Lineups: Albert Pujols Sits Against Toronto

If the last few days in Anaheim have told us anything, it's that there just might be a shutout Saturday night as the Los Angeles Angels host the Toronto Blue Jays at Angel Stadium. Albert Pujols has had a nightmare start for the Angels, hitting just .194/.237/.269 with no home runs in 27 games and 114 plate appearances. He gets the night off on Saturday night.

The last four Halos games have all featured shutouts, the first time in Angels history they have been involved in four consecutive shutouts. Unfortunately for the Angels, the last two games have seen shutouts by Blue Jays, as Brandon Morrow and Henderson Alvarez each added nine scoreless innings to their ledger in the first two games of this four-game weekend series. The Angels have gone 22 straight innings without scoring, and during that span have just 11 hits and two walks.

C.J. Wilson (3-2, 2.70 ERA) gets the start for the Angels, while Kyle Drabek (2-2, 2.40 ERA) tries to become the third straight Toronto pitcher to shutout the Halos. Here are Saturday's starting lineups:

Blue Jays (16-11)

Johnson 2B
Escobar SS
Bautista RF
Encarnacion DH
Lind 1B
Lawrie 3B
Davis LF
Rasmus CF
Arencibia C

Angels (10-17)
