After Saturday’s 6-3 loss to the Cleveland Guardians, the Toronto Blue Jays are on the verge of being swept for the second series in a row. With a record of 35-41 and currently dead last in the AL East Division, they will hope to change their fortunes around on Sunday to salvage at least a win in what is turning out to be a disastrous week for the team.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will have Yusei Kikuchi toe the rubber in what will be his 16th start of the season. To date, Kikuchi has been one of the few bright spots on the team in 2024 as he has compiled a 4-6 record, 3.65 ERA with 83 strikeouts in 81.1 innings pitched. He will look to bounce back from a sub-par outing against the Boston Red Sox last time out where he gave up 5 runs on 7 hits in just 4 innings of work.
  • The Guardians will counter with 26-year-old right-handed pitcher Triston McKenzie. The former first rounder has he dusted some control and command issues this season, posting a 3-4 record with a 4.48 ERA, a league-leading 42 walks, along with 65 strikeouts in just 70.1 innings pitched. He had his shortest outing of the season in his last start against the Seattle Mariners, going just 2.1 innings and giving up 4 runs on 3 hits and 4 walks with zero strikeouts. Like Kikuchi, McKenzie will look to rebound on Sunday with hopes to help the Guardians complete the sweep over the Jays this weekend.
