Things aren't going smoothly for the Toronto Blue Jays right now, but they remain above .500 and are still a respectable ballclub. For the next three days, the last-place Jays are set to take on a first-place Twins team that actually has just about the same exact win-loss record as Toronto does. That really puts into perspective how strong the AL East is this year and perhaps how weak the AL Central is. After a tough series loss versus the Rays, members of the Blue Jays held a players-only meeting to try and inject some spunk into this team. Now is the time to see if that meeting worked.

Probable starting pitchers

  • For the Blue Jays, Kevin Gausman is set to make the 11th start of his 2023 campaign. Through 63 innings, the 32-year-old has a 3.14 ERA, 2.47 ERA, 132 ERA+ and an American League-leading 81 strikeouts. In that time, he has walked only 11 batters and consistently keeps the Jays in games he starts. Of course, those are the days where the defense falls apart behind him and the offense fails to score any runs.
  • Louie Varland is going to make his sixth start of the year for the Twins. The 25-year-old has posted an admirable 4.18 ERA and 104 ERA+ through 28 innings to kick off the year and has actually never faced any of the Blue Jays active roster members in the big leagues, which he could use to his advantage in tonight's contest.
