Toronto Blue Jays
While the Red Sox and Yankees have not only dominated headlines in the division, but also the entire league, the Blue Jays have quietly kept a steady pace just a few paces behind.
Toronto is off to a 90-win pace and sends one of its really good starters to the mound on Friday in JA Happ.
Aaron Sanchez is pretty good and Marcus Stroman has proven himself, too, but Happ might be the Blue Jays’ best arm these days. He’s averaging a career-best 12.5 strikeouts per 9 innings and has won his last four decisions.
Josh Donaldson is going to join the team in Cleveland and expects to play at some point in the doubleheader on Thursday before this trip. That should mean he’s good to go for this series after recovering from a leg injury.
The Jays have done well to keep things afloat with their best player out for the last couple weeks.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays get Thursday off and will travel home after a frustrating series against the Tigers finished with consecutive one-run losses.
Tampa Bay lost two out of three to Detroit, which is one of the worst teams in the league by now. It had won nine in a row before losing a finale in Boston immediately before going to Detroit. That run got the Rays back into shouting distance in the division, though Boston is still a long way out in front.
Ryan Yarbrough has been up and down between the big league club and Triple-A. I don’t suspect he’ll go deep into this game, regardless of how effective he is. It isn’t likely that he’s going to be very effective, though. At the worst, Toronto will hit a big fly or two.
