After suffering a humiliating 10-0 defeat at the hands of the Houston Astros in which they were also no-hit in the process, the Toronto Blue Jays will have nowhere to go but up as the teams are set to meet in the second game of the three-game series. With a 2-3 record, the Jays currently sit tied for fourth with the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East, whereas the Astros (1-4) remain at the bottom of the AL West following their first win of the season, albeit a resounding one, on Monday.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will send Opening Day starter José Berríos to the mound to help stop some of the bleeding. Berríos is coming off a strong start against the Rays in which he went 6 solid innings, giving up just 2 earned runs on 6 hits along with 6 strikeouts for his first win of the season. He will aim to build upon that success by taking on the challenge against the prolific-hitting Astros’ lineup.
  • The Astros will counter with two-time All-Star Framber Valdez. Unlike Berríos, Valdez struggled mightily with his command in his Opening Day start against the New York Yankees. Over just 4.2 innings, he gave up 3 runs on 5 hits, including a staggering 6 walks to go along with 5 strikeouts. Valdez will look to bounce back from the miserable outing in his scheduled second start of the season.
