Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer won’t be in the starting lineup for Friday’s game against the Minnesota Twins.

Springer has been dealing with discomfort in his right elbow and missed three games earlier this week.

The 32-year-old returned to action as the designated hitter on Thursday and had a walk, two RBIs and a run in the 9-3 win over the Twins.

Springer is slashing .251/.331/.464 with 18 homers and 49 RBIs this season.

All-Star catcher Alejandro Kirk is also not listed in the starting lineup, and Danny Jansen is expected to be behind the plate.

Latest acquisition Witt Merrifield leads things and plays in center field. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. will be his third in his DH, followed by right fielder Teoscar Hernandez in the cleanup role.

Starting pitcher Jose Berrios takes the mound against his former club. Berrios was traded to the Blue Jays just over a year ago in a trade for Austin Martin and Simeon Woods-Richardson.
