Probable starting pitchers

José Berríos will take the mound for the Blue Jays in what will be his second start of the year. He is coming off of a poor showing in Spring Training and the World Baseball Classic, which carried over into his season deubt last week. In his first start against the Cardinals, Berríos went 5.2 innings while allowing eight earned runs on nine hits, taking the loss in the process.

His mound opponent will be left-hander Tyler Anderson. Anderson, 33, is coming off of what was easily the best year of his career in 2022. He made the All-Star Game and went 15-5 for the always-competitive Los Angeles Dodgers. In his first start for the other Los Angeles team, Anderson went six shutout innings, striking out four and walking two. The Blue Jays have a right-handed heavy lineup but Anderson is going to be a tough nut to crack in this matchup.
