MONTREAL -- Right fielder Jose Bautista was originally scheduled to bat third as the designated hitter in the Blue Jays' lineup Saturday, but he was scratched because of a stomach virus.

Bautista hit his sixth spring home run Friday, when he led off the fourth inning with a shot off Mets starter Jenrry Mejia deep into the left-field bleachers at Olympic Stadium.

First baseman Adam Lind was inserted into the third spot in the batting order Saturday, with cleanup hitter Edwin Encarnacion taking over DH duties against Mets starter Daisuke Matsuzaka.
