Toronto Blue Jays
Friday, July 24, 10:10 PM
Drew Hutchison (9-2, 5.12 ERA)
Felix Hernandez (11-5, 2.77 ERA)
Toronto: If he's over the flu, Hutchison will look to put an end to the talk about his road struggles in the series opener in Seattle. He has a 2.21 ERA at home, but on the road, he hasn't had much success (8.81 ERA).
Seattle: The six-time All-Star took another tough no-decision in his last outing, allowing one run in six innings at Yankee Stadium. Hernandez is 1-1 with a 1.04 ERA in his last four starts. He?s 7-3 with a 2.60 mark at home this year.
Saturday, July 25, 4:10 PM
Marco Estrada (7-5, 3.22 ERA)
J.A. Happ (4-5, 4.12 ERA)
Toronto: Estrada has quietly emerged as one of the Blue Jays' most reliable starters. He has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last six starts and two of those involved taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning.
Seattle: Happ faces his former team for the first time since being acquired by trade in December. The veteran lefty opened the season 3-1 with a 3.31 ERA in 11 starts, but is 1-5, 5.54 in his last seven. He is 2-2, 2.66 ERA in eight starts at Safeco.
Sunday, July 26, 4:10 PM
Mark Buehrle (11-5, 3.23 ERA)
Taijuan Walker (7-7, 5.06 ERA)
Toronto: Another year, another strong season from Buehrle. He hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in a start since May 29 and he has gone at least seven innings in all but one of those nine outings.
Seattle: The 22-year-old went 5-0 with a 1.67 ERA in five games from June 10-July 1, but 0-2, 9.39 in his past three starts. But his control has remained consistent -- he?s walked just three with 65 strikeouts over his past 10 outings.
