Toronto Blue Jays
Friday July 10, 8:10
Marco Estrada (6-4, 3.59 ERA)
vs Danny Duffy (2-4, 5.14 ERA)
Blue Jays: Estrada bounced back from a rough outing against Boston to surrender two runs over five innings against the Tigers in his last start. Estrada has allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts but has never faced the Royals in his career.
Royals: Duffy has thrown into the seventh inning in two of his three starts since returning from the DL, with 11 strikeouts and just five walks. He is 0-2 with an 11.42 ERA in three career games against the Blue Jays.
Saturday July 11, 2:10
Mark Buehrle (9-5, 3.38 ERA)
vs Chris Young (7-4, 2.89 ERA)
Blue Jays: Buehrle was the victim of some shoddy defense in his last start -- as evidenced by four unearned runs against the White Sox -- but outside of that one little blip he has been on a roll. He's allowed two earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts.
Royals:Young has allowed just seven runs over his past three starts, though he has lost two of his last four outings. He is 1-2 career against Tampa Bay, while current Rays players are hitting .278 against him all-time.
Sunday July 12, 2:10
Felix Doubront (1-0, 2.00 ERA)
vs Edinson Volquez (8-4, 3.40 ERA)
Blue Jays: Doubront earned himself a second start after allowing just one earned run over 6 2/3 innings vs the White Sox. He essentially controls his own fate and will continue starting as long as the numbers support it.
Royals: Volquez has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last six starts, yielding one off a homer last Tuesday vs. the Rays. The Royals have won 12 of 17 games with Volquez starting this season.
