Projected lineups: Again with no Fabian Castillo (international duty with Colombia yesterday), Oscar Pareja will likely stick it out with what he used last week by having Tesho Akindele on the wings. It will be interesting to see if Blas Perez returns to the starting lineup or if David Texeira remains the top choice up top. Lastly, will Kellyn Acosta be able to go or will Ezequiel Cirigliano go instead?
