Ah, yes, the 2023 home opener is finally upon us for the Toronto Blue Jays. Rogers Centre is sure to sellout and Jays fans are going to be off-the-rails excited for this year's squad to take the field at home for the first time.

Probable starting pitchers

Staff ace Alek Manoah will take the mound for the Blue Jays for what will be his third start of the season. After struggling on Opening Day against the Cardinals, he bounced back in a big way against the Royals, throwing seven shutout innings with five strikeouts and just one hit allowed. The 25-year-old has historically been dominant at home, going 12-4 with a 2.38 ERA in 24 starts.

Opposing Manoah on the mound for Tuesday's game is Matt Manning. Manning, 25, was once a promising pitching prospect and has done well in the first 31 starts of his big league career. While injuries have occasionally been of concern for him, he seems to be all systems go for 2023 and has one start under his belt on the year so far. The lone start of his career against the Blue Jays went well for Manning, as he went six innings and allowed just one run, striking out five along the way.
