It hasn't been the start fans had hoped for, but the Toronto Blue Jays (6-7) will look to get things off on the right foot in their series opener against the visiting Colorado Rockies (3-10) on Friday at the newly revamped Rogers Centre.

The Jays are coming off a tough extra-innings loss to the Mariners on Wednesday, which included a dramatic game-tying blast from Vladimir Guerrero Jr. They still scrapped together a series win, however, even if it didn't end on a positive note.

Entering action today, Toronto sits last in the formidable AL East, 4.0 games back of the red-hot New York Yankees. The Rockies are dead last in the just-as-challenging NL West. On paper, it looks like it should be a cakewalk for the home team, but the game still has to be played, and as we know, anything can happen.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Kevin Gausman takes the ball for the Blue Jays tonight. The staff ace has an unsightly 9.53 ERA and 1.41 WHIP through two starts this season. After a disastrous outing at Yankee Stadium last Saturday, he'll undoubtedly enjoy the warm, friendly confines of the Rogers Centre. Look for the right-hander's velocity to bump back up to a more normal range after he just couldn't get the engines going in the Bronx.
  • The Rockies will send Ryan Feltner (0-1) to the mound tonight. The 27-year-old righty is making his third start of the season and comes in with a 3.27 ERA and 1.00 WHIP. In his most recent outing, he struck out 10 Tampa Bay Rays hitters through six innings of two-hit, one-run ball. Feltner features a five-pitch mix, leaning on his 88.4 mph slider and 95.1 mph four-seam fastball most of the time — but he'll throw in a changeup, a sinker and a curveball.
