Following Monday’s victory, the Toronto Blue Jays have dropped the past two games to the Kansas City Royals by identical 3-2 scores. In doing so, the Jays have fallen to fourth place in the AL east with a 13-12 record, just half a game ahead of the basement-dwelling Tampa Bay Rays. They will hope to earn a series split on Thursday against the Royals (15-10) before returning home to face Shohei Ohtani and the tough Los Angeles Dodgers team for the weekend series.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will have team ace José Berríos take the hill in the series finale. Berríos had been nothing short of sensational for the Jays this season, leading the AL in wins with four along with posting a stellar 0.85 ERA, 1.01 WHIP with 27 strikeouts in 31.2 innings pitched. He is the exact person to have take the mound to help the Jays to stop the bleeding and salvage a win before heading home for a six-game home stand.
  • The Royals will counter with former 2016 first round pick Cole Ragans. After a strong first season with the Royals last year where he compiled a 2.64 ERA and 1.07 WHIP over 12 starts, Ragans has struggled coming out of the gate so far in 2024. In five games to date, he sports an 0-2 record with a 4.32 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. However, he has maintained his strikeout ability, averaging close to 12 punchouts per nine innings. Ragans will be looking for his first win of the season and secure the series win for the Royals.
