Edwin Encarnacion and Colby Rasmus are back in the lineup for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Encarnacion will play designated hitter as the Jays open a three-game series Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles. He has missed the last four games with a left wrist sprain.

Rasmus returns to centre field. He has been out since Aug. 11 with a strained left oblique.

Todd Redmond starts for the Jays against Baltimore's Jason Hammel.

Toronto has won seven of 13 games against the Orioles this season.
