In a day that's been filled by news surrounding Alek Manoah and his demotion to the minor leagues, it'd be easy to forget that the Toronto Blue Jays still have a game to play this evening! Coming off of an embarrassing 10-4 loss at the hands of the second-place Houston Astros, the red-hot Blue Jays are gearing up to take their revenge. In other news for the Jays, both Chris Bassitt (paternity list) and Santiago Espinal (right hamstring injury) have been reinstated to the active roster.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Kevin Gausman is set to make his 13th start of the year and continue his strong stretch of play. Fresh off of an outing against the Brewers in which he went 6.2 innings and struck out 11 batters, the 32-year-old is all the way locked in this season. So far, he has a 4-3 record with a 2.76 ERA and 149 ERA+. Not to mention the right-hander also leads the American League in strikeouts (100) and FIP (2.38), making him one of the more dangerous hurlers in the game today.
  • Opposing Gausman on the mound will be 24-year-old Hunter Brown for the Astros. The right-hander was ranked as the No. 1 prospect in Houston's system around this time last year and has gotten his big league career off to a nice start. Through 11 starts this season, Brown is 5-2 with a 3.61 ERA, 2.90 FIP and 118 ERA+. He is a high-strikeout pitcher who excels at keeping the ball in the ballpark so the Blue Jays may have to rely on some good old fashioned smallball in Tuesday evening's contest.
