After struggling to get things going during their opening road trip to start the season. the Toronto Blue Jays began their home stand with an inspirational 5-2 win over the Seattle Mariners on Opening Night. Backed by the strong start of José Berríos, the Blue Jays (5-6) now creep to within a game of .500 on the season. They will aim to keep things rolling against the Mariners (4-7) in the second game of the three-game set on Tuesday night.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will send veteran right-handed pitcher Chris Bassitt to the mound. Bassitt has been off to a less-than-stellar start to his 2024 campaign, posting an 0-2 record with a 7.71 ERA, 2.14 WHIP, giving up 8 earned runs on 15 hits along with 5 walks and 9 strikeouts in just 9.1 innings pitched. He will look to bounce back from his rough outings in pursuit of his first win of the season against the Mariners.
  • The Mariners will counter with 2023 All-Star George Kirby. Kirby, who had been one of the Mariners most consistent pitchers in the past two seasons, is coming off one of the worst starts of his career in which he gave up 8 runs (6 earned) on 9 hits in just 3.2 innings of work against the Cleveland Guardians. He will be looking for his second win of 2024 by getting back on track against the Jays.
