Weather has wreaked some havoc in the Midwest, but it’s a surprisingly full MLB slate on Monday, April 17th, with 11 games on the docket — including a special 11:10 a.m. ET start time at Fenway Park on Patriots’ Day (and/or Boston Marathon Day). That means plenty of (rather early) decisions for fantasy managers to make, and we’ll have all the day’s starting lineups below as they’re released.

MLB starting lineups: Monday, April 17

Los Angeles Angels vs. Boston Red Sox, 11:10 a.m. ET

With an early start time for Patriots’ Day, both the struggling Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon will be out for the Angels on Monday morning. Brett Phillips starts in center and Gio Urshela gets the call at third while rookie shortstop Zach Neto will again lead off.

Rob Refsnyder is now hitting third for Boston even against a righty, while Raimel Tapia leads off and Jarren Duran gives Alex Verdugo a day off in center.

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Cincinnati Reds, 6:40 p.m. ET

Isaac Paredes, Harold Ramirez and Josh Lowe will all start against Cincy’s Hunter Greene, while Taylor Walls and Luke Raley sit.

No Spencer Steer at third for the Reds tonight, as Nick Senzel will fill in at third base and Stuart Fairchild bats second and starts in left.

San Francisco Giants vs. Miami Marlins, 6:40 p.m. ET

The Giants will once again stack righties against lefty Jesus Luzardo, with Wilmer Flores, Darin Ruf and J.D. Davis comprising the heart of the order.

Jorge Soler will sit while Jesus Sanchez starts in right for Miami.

Texas Rangers vs. Kansas City Royals, 7:40 p.m. ET

Travis Jankowski will take his turn in the two-hole in Corey Seager’s absence while Brad Miller serves as the DH and Robbie Grossman starts in left.

Hunter Dozier will somewhat inexplicably bat fifth while starting at third for K.C. Edward Olivares will sit while Nate Eaton starts in left.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. St. Louis Cardinals, 7:45 p.m. ET

Corbin Carroll is up to fifth in the lineup now for Arizona, while Lourdes Gurriel is back after a day off on Sunday. Pavin Smith will DH and Gabriel Moreno will catch.

Paul Goldschmidt will get a day off for St. Louis tonight, while Brendan Donovan will play first and Alec Burleson will serve as the DH. Tyler O’Neill gets the nod over Dylan Carlson in left.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Houston Astros, 8:10 p.m. ET

Brandon Belt gets a start at first while Cavan Biggio while handle second base against righty Cristian Javier.

Chas McCormick remains out, meaning Mauricio Dubon will lead off and Jake Meyers will patrol center for Houston.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Colorado Rockies, 8:40 p.m. ET

Plenty of righties feature in Pittsburgh’s lineup against lefty Kyle Freeland, with Andrew McCutchen, Connor Joe and Mark Mathias all drawing starts.

Jurickson Profar leads off again, the white-hot Elias Diaz will bat fifth and Ezequiel Tovar is back at shortstop for Colorado:

Chicago Cubs vs. Oakland Athletics, 9:40 p.m. ET

It seems like Eric Hosmer is on the outs in Chicago, as Nick Madrigal plays third and Patrick Wisdom serves as the DH tonight.

Esteury Ruiz seems like the permanent leadoff man in Oakland now, while Tony Kemp slides down to fifth and Connor Capel gets another start in right field.

Atlanta Braves vs. San Diego Padres, 9:40 p.m. ET

It’s Eli White getting his first start of the year in center for Atlanta, while Kevin Pillar will handle left with a lefty on the mound.

No Trent Grisham against a lefty means Jose Azocar moves to center while Brandon Dixon starts in right — and Padres fans can count down the days until Fernando Tatis Jr. is out there.

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Seattle Mariners, 9:40 p.m. ET

Brewers TBA

Business as usual for the Mariners, but Cooper Hummel will return to the DH spot against Corbin Burnes.

New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers, 10:10 p.m. ET

Brett Baty is in the lineup against Dustin May tonight while Tomas Nido spells Francisco Alvarez behind the dish.

Chris Taylor hits cleanup (?!) while Trayce Thompson gets a start in center against lefty David Peterson. No Will Smith as he deals with symptoms of a concussion.
