With a convincing 11-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night, the Toronto Blue Jays have reduced their magic number down to one entering the final weekend of the season. With full control of their own destiny, the Jays will look to put the finishing touches against the Rays on Saturday to punch their official ticket into the 2023 MLB postseason.
Probable starting pitchers
- For the potential series and potential playoff berth clincher, the Blue Jays will send trusted veteran Hyun Jin Ryu to the mound for his 11th and final start of the regular season. Ryu has been providing solid production as the 5th man in the Jays starting rotation down the stretch, as he has posted a 3-3 record with a 3.31 ERA, 128 ERA+ and a 1.22 WHIP. He has come up with some big wins for the Jays in the past, as he aims to do the same for today’s game.
- Right-handed pitcher Shawn Armstrong will start as the opener for the Rays. Armstrong has had a strong season for the Rays, compiling a stellar 1.41 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, with 54 strikeouts in 51 innings pitched. With the AL East division title out of reach now, the Rays look to end their regular season on a winning note as they prepare to host the Wild Card series in the coming week.
