Toronto Blue Jays
Joe Biagini has been tough as a relief pitcher this season; now he will take his turn as the starting pitcher.
Biagini makes his first start of 2017 – check that, the first start of his career – on Sunday afternoon. The move comes after the Jays designated Mat Latos for assignment after he got rocked by the Yankees and left the stadium early.
JA Happ and Aaron Sanchez are still out with their own respective injuries.
I’m not sure how many pitches we can expect Biagini to go. He threw 41 pitches four days ago against the Yankees, which is a career-high. But John Gibbons has gone on the record saying that he can throw many more than that. I would think five innings is a best-case scenario.
Tampa Bay Rays
If he does everything he can, Biagini will probably go five innings. That means Tampa Bay will get plenty of opportunity to do damage to a Toronto bullpen without Joe Biagini.
Unfortunately, we can’t take the over on the last four innings. But it sure seems like Tampa Bay will have an advantage late in this game.
Especially if Alex Cobb can give his team another good six innings, like he did in his last start, at Miami. Cobb blanked the Marlins in that one, striking out two and walking two. He’s got his ERA under 4.00.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: Biagini gets his first taste of starter helplessness.
The guy who has made over 70 appearances out of the bullpen in his career will leave his first career start with a lead only to see his pals in the ‘pen blow it.

Really, this price is entirely too high but it corroborates my prediction.
