After a failed ninth inning comeback in Saturday's game against the Minnesota Twins, the Toronto Blue Jays enter the day with an opportunity to win their first series since sweeping the Atlanta Braves two full weeks ago. The bats have been decent but not great for the Jays, as they continue to struggle in high-leverage situations, specifically when it comes to moving runners while they're in scoring position.
Probable starting pitchers
- For the Blue Jays, José Berríos, who just turned 29 yesterday (happy birthday!), is going to take the mound against his former team. Prior to being traded to Toronto in 2021, he had spent the first six years of his professional career as a member of the Twins. In the current campaign, Berríos has made 10 starts and has a 4.22 ERA, 3.76 FIP and 98 ERA+. He is in the midst of a nice comeback season after struggling through the majority of last year.
- Taking the mound for the Twins will be yet another one of their promising young starters in Bailey Ober. The 27-year-old is set to make the seventh start of his 2023 campaign and is currently 3-1 with a 2.55 ERA, 3.54 FIP and 170 ERA+. Ober is a big time groundball pitcher, which could be trouble for a Blue Jays lineup that can't stop grounding into double plays.
