Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays lost their 19th game on Thursday, actually dropping the final two games in their series with New York. Toronto is 10 games under .500 heading into a weekend series Tampa.
Francisco Liriano has been exactly .500 since only getting one out in his opening start of the season. He’s 2-2 with an ERA a shade under 4.00, allowing about a hit per inning with his usual higher-than-desired walk rate.
Those BBs have been a problem in the last two outings – four apiece. Liriano will absolutely overpower the Rays but could find trouble if he isn’t around the plate.
The Rays can take ball four and give a pitcher fits once they reach first base.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay beat Miami in its series finale yesterday and will wait at home for their new opponent.
Chris Archer’s last start came against Toronto, the last day of last month. He went 7.1 innings in that one and only gave up four hits and a run.
It will be harder to do it again but Archer is at home. He’s gone at least seven innings in two of his three starts at the Trop so far in 2017.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: Liriano is wild and the Rays capitalize.
The pattern isn’t good for Liriano and things unravel in this one. He walks five in the first three innings and the Rays take an early lead that Archer sits on.
