Performance

The Blue Jays have been in a little bit of a slump recently.  In their last seven games, they have lost five.  Their starting rotation has been pretty bad to start the season.  Their two key pitchers, Marcus Stroman and Marco Estrada, have combined for a 6.75 ERA in 751/3 innings.

Pitching Matchups

Friday, May 11 at 7:07 PM Chris Sale (3-1, 2.02 ERA) vs. Aaron Sanchez (2-3, 4.14 ERA)

Saturday, May 12 at 4:07 PM David Price (2-4, 5.11 ERA) vs. Marco Estrada (2-2, 5.21 ERA)

Sunday, May 13 at 1:07 PM Drew Pomeranz (1-1, 5.23 ERA) vs. Marcus Stroman (0-5, 7.71 ERA)

Things to Watch

  • Chris Sale has been great against Toronto.  Let’s hope he can keep this up.
  • Will Rafael Devers and Andrew Benintendi break out of their slumps and get it going this series?
  • Can the bullpen avoid imploding this series?
  • How will David Price look on Saturday?

The first game of the series will start tonight at 7:07 PM ET.  Let’s hope we can start the series off well.
