At long last, one of the most hectic series the Toronto Blue Jays have been a part of in quite some time is coming to a close. The New York Yankees took the first two in dramatic fashion, stirring up quite a bit of controversy along the way, until last night when Danny Jansen hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 10th inning. The Jays will aim to split the series without some of their key offensive contributors, as Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is recovering from knee soreness and Kevin Kiermaier is down with a viral illness.

Probable starting pitchers

  • José Berríos, 28, is set to make his ninth start and has had some up and down performances to begin the 2023 campaign, but so has every other starter for the Blue Jays. The right-hander has bounced back from an awful 2022 performance to post a 4.70 ERA, 3.59 FIP and 90 ERA+ throuhg his first eight starts and 46 innings pitched. In his last two outings, he has allowed just four runs in 12 innings, striking out 10 along the way.
  • Nestor Cortes is set to get the start for the Yankees in this series finale. The 28-year-old southpaw emerged as one of baseball's biggest surprises last year, breaking out to the tune of a 12-4 record with a 2.44 ERA and 159 ERA+ in 28 starts. To kick off the current season, the numbers just haven't been there for him. Through eight starts and 42.1 innings, he has a 5.53 ERA, 4.60 FIP and 79 ERA+.
