It brings me absolutely no joy to start these pieces off like this all the time, but the Toronto Blue Jays enter Tuesday night's action in a bad place. The club is 15 games out of first place in the AL East and their gap to a Wild Card spot is also up to 8 games. They're 3-7 in their last 10 and are set to face off against an Astros club that is on fire. Houston is 9-1 in their last 10 and have trimmed the gap between them and the first-place Mariners to just 3 games.

Earlier today, the Blue Jays recalled Jays Journal's No. 7 prospect Leo Jimenez for his big league debut. Read more about the move here.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays are set to send right-hander Jose Berrios to the mound to make his 18th start of the year. Berrios is having another above-average season for the Jays, building off of an incredible rebound campaign in 2023. The 30-year-old is 7-6 with a 3.38 ERA and 118 ERA+ through his first 104 innings. In his last time out, he went seven innings and allowed two runs with eight strikeouts against a dangerous Yankees lineup.
  • On the Astros' side, rookie Spencer Arrighetti will make the 15th start of his season and career. The right-hander's big league career has not exactly gotten off on the right foot, but he's coming off of an excellent outing against the Rockies where he threw seven shutout innings with 10 strikeouts. As a whole, he's 4-6 with a 5.68 ERA and 4.25 FIP this year.
