Game 3: TBD vs Matt Moore (2-4, 5.84 ERA)
TBD. Not the favourite thing to see for the last game of the season. The starter will depend on how the first two games go and how close the Blue Jays are to securing playoff home field advantage. If it gets secured ahead of time, then it may be a parade of 1 or 2 innings guys like in spring training with Buehrle getting a few innings if needed.
If it isn’t secured, it will all depend on how things shake down for the way Gibby wants to set up his starters going into the playoffs. Hutchison? Dickey? Hendriks? Francis? A lot of options and none secured down just yet…we’ll keep you posted.
Matt Moore has been in and out of the rotation for the last 4 seasons when he hasn’t been injured. When he is right, he has a great fastball with late life on it and has had some measured succes in the majors. He is a guy definitely looking towards 2016 with this start, hoping he can secure himself a consistent spot in the rotation.
He has the capabilities to do it….as long as he stays healthy. He hasn’t come back too strong this season so look for the Blue Jays to take it to him and send him to the showers early.
