After losing two straight, underwhelming games to the New York Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays will look to right the ship in the finale of the three-game series against the Bronx Bombers. With their current losing skid, the Houston Astros have closed to within half a game of the Jays for the second Wild Card spot, while the Seattle Mariners remain two games out with four games remaining. Nevertheless, the Jays will need a big win tonight to help solidify their playoff spot going into the final series of the season.
Probable starting pitchers
- Who better to have on the mound to help stop the Yankees than the recently-hot Chris Bassitt (15-8)? Aside from a rare blowup against the Texas Rangers earlier this month, Bassitt has been absolute money down the stretch for the Blue Jays, as in his past five starts, he is 3-1 with a 2.57 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, while striking out 26 in 35 innings pitched. He will be looking for his 16th win of the season in his final regular season start, and it couldn't have come at a better time than now when his team needs him most
- For the Yankees, former first round pick Luke Weaver (3-5) will make his 25th and final start of the season against the Blue Jays. He has produced a sub-par 2023 season that saw him move around from the Cincinnati Reds to the Seattle Mariners, and now finally to the Yankees. For the year, he owns an unspectacular 6.47 ERA and 1.57 WHIP, while giving up a whopping 27 home runs in just 119.2 innings of work. However, he has been strong in his only two starts with the Yankees so far this season, with a 2.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, with 10 strikeouts in 9.1 innings pitched, so the Blue Jays shouldn't underestimate him and definitely prepare for the battle.
