Fresh off of a clean four-game sweep against the first-place Pirates, the Toronto Blue Jays are set to face off against one of the most dangerous lineups in the National League, the Philadelphia Phillies. This two-game set will be played in Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park. The 21-14 Jays currently sit third in the AL East while the 16-19 Phillies are fourth in the NL East.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Alek Manoah will form the Blue Jays' half of this battle of the aces. The 25-year-old just hasn't looked like himself to begin the current campaign, posting a 4.71 ERA and 5.49 FIP through seven starts, highlighted by two seven-inning starts against the Royals and Yankees, respectively. All hope is not lost for the 2022 All-Star, though. It will be important to be patient with him as he tries to find his groove in 2023.
  • Aaron Nola is set to start the contest for the Phillies. In seven starts, he, like Manoah, has scuffled a bit. In 42+ innings of work, Nola has a 4.64 ERA and 4.03 FIP, largely thanks to him already surrendering five home runs, which is unusual for him. The 29-year-old is one of the premier strikeout artists in the game, so the Blue Jays will have their work cut out for them.
