The Toronto Blue Jays have hit a rut as of late, going 3-7 in their past ten games. In doing so, they have fallen below .500 and currently sit in fourth place in the AL East, 5.5 games behind the division-leading Baltimore Orioles. With a lifetime 43-35 winning record against the NL East Washington Nationals (15-16), the Blue Jays (15-17) will look to build upon that success as they meet up for a three-game weekend series in Washington.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will have power-throwing, left-handed pitcher Yusei Kikuchi on the mound. Kikuchi had been cruising so far in his 2024 campaign, posting a solid 2.94 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with 36 strikeouts in 33.2 innings pitched. However, he is just coming off his worst performance to date when he surrendered 4 runs on 9 hits in a losing cause against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 27th. Kikuchi aims to get back on track against the Nationals, which he has yet to face so far in his career.
  • Washington will counter with veteran left-handed pitcher Patrick Corbin. After leading the Naitonal League in losses for each of the past three seasons, Corbin appears well on his way to repeat that feat for a fourth consecutive year as he has compiled an 0-3 record, 6.82 ERA, 1.90 WHIP in six starts to date. Facing a struggling Blue Jays team, this will be his best chance for secure his first win of the season, as he currently sports a respectable 3.18 ERA with 9 strikeouts in 11.1 innings when pitching at home in 2024.
