Monday evening's game for the Toronto Blue Jays went about the same as all others have gone lately, with poorly executed plays resulting in opposing runs scored. Despite a decent-but-not-great outing from Chris Bassitt, the Blue Jays allowed the Tampa Bay Rays to capitalize on defensive miscues and promptly lost the game in 6-4 fashion.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Making his 10th start of the season for the Blue Jays will be right-hander José Berríos. The 28-year-old has seven more strikeouts in two of his last three starts and appears to be turning a bit of a corner after last year's not-so-great performance. Berríos is striking out just under nine batters per nine innings and has allowed just over nine hits per nine innings, which still is not great, but is much better than last year's output. On the year, he is 3-4 with a 4.61 ERA, 3.59 FIP and 90 ERA+.
  • Youngster Taj Bradley is set to make his fifth start for the Rays. Bradley, 22, entered the year as the No. 16 prospect in all of baseball and currently sits atop the Rays' prospect lists. Through four starts, he has looked as the club hoped he would, posting a 3.54 ERA, 3.29 FIP and 115 ERA+ through just over 20 innings of work. In that time, he has struckout 12 batters per nine innings and is looking to be yet another home-grown talent from this Rays organization.
