Kyle Drabek.......Luke Hochevar
2-0, 1.42 ERA........1-1, 7.84 ERA

Drabek enters his start against the Rays fresh off a career-high 7 1/3 innings in a win over the Orioles on Sunday. The 24-year-old is 2-0 with a 1.42 ERA and 1.03 WHIP.

Hochevar missed his regular turn on Wednesday after getting drilled in the left ankle by a line drive in the home opener against the Indians. His recovery from a bruise has been swift but the team opted to give him an extra day and a half to recover before starting again.

http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_571800.jpg vs http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_434669.jpg
Drew Hutchison.......Luis Mendoza
0-0, -.-- ERA..........0-2, 5.59 ERA

Hutchison, 21, will make his Major League debut against the Royals on Saturday and become Toronto's No. 5 starter. In three starts at Double-A New Hampshire this season, Hutchison went 2-1 with a 2.16 ERA over 16 innings. Hutchison ranked number 4 on the Blue Jays forum top 30 prospect poll :cool:

Last Sunday against Cleveland, Mendoza became the third straight starter to make an early exit, leaving in the top of the fifth inning after giving up six runs in the third. In two prior starts against the Blue Jays, Mendoza went 1-1 with a 4.85 ERA.

http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_460069.jpg vs http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_518633.jpg
Ricky Romero.......Danny Duffy
2-0, 3.72 ERA........1-1, 2.13 ERA

Romero improved to 2-0 with a 3.72 ERA after beating Tampa Bay in his last outing, and has thrown at least six innings in 15 of his last 16 starts. Romero went 0-1 over two starts against the Royals last season, with a 3.86 ERA.

Duffy has pitched well in his first two starts of the season. He struck out seven Tigers in his last outing, despite taking the loss. The last time Duffy faced the Jays, he lasted just four innings, surrendering five runs on eight hits.


Monday, April 23, 8:10 PM

http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_453344.jpg vs http://mlb.mlb.com/images/players/mugshot/ph_136600.jpg
Brandon Morrow......Bruce Chen
0-1, 4.50 ERA.......0-1, 2.00 ERA

Morrow has struggled to keep the ball in the park so far this season. He's allowed six homers in just 20 innings, which has resulted in a 4.50 ERA. Morrow has gone 2-4 with a 5.33 ERA in nine career games against the Royals.

Chen has had tough luck in his first three starts of the season. He's given up only four earned runs in his 18 innings pitched, but his record stands at 0-1. Last time out against the Tigers, Chen surrendered just two runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out seven.


A serving of youth as Blue Jays face Royals


A pair of teams with up-and-coming talent will stack their youth against each other when the Royals welcome the Blue Jays, starting on Friday.

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas is one of those young, high-ceiling players, but is off to a slow start. Nevertheless, Royals manager Ned Yost has been pleased that his young third baseman continues to battle, despite hitting .233 (10-for-43) with one home run and six RBIs during the young season.

"He can be excellent defensively," Yost said. "He's a kid that works really hard at being a good defender, works on all phases of his game -- balls down the line, balls in the hole, charging slow rollers and bunts. He was out here at 3 o'clock for 20 minutes taking ground balls, working on all aspects of his game.

"He wants to be good. He's a tremendous athlete and when you have a tremendous athlete that wants to be good, the sky's the limit for them."

Moustakas and the rest of the Royals will look to support Luke Hochevar, who returns to the mound after he was hit in the ankle by a line drive during the Royals' home opener on April 13th.

The ankle wasn't Hochevar's only source of pain. He was roughed up for seven runs in the first inning against Cleveland, but managed to get through four frames. Hochevar, who earned his first big league win against the Blue Jays on April 26, 2008, is 3-1 with a 3.41 ERA lifetime against Toronto.

Kyle Drabek, 24, will oppose Hochevar in search of a third straight strong start to begin the season. Drabek (2-0, 1.42 ERA) held the Orioles to one run over 7 1/3 innings with six strikeouts in his last outing on April 15. He backed that up by holding the Red Sox to one run in 5 1/3 innings on April 10.

"Last year, I changed up my mechanics four or five times, and when I came to Spring Training, they found one they wanted me to try that was kind of easy," Drabek said after his last outing. "It was hard at first, but [I'm] real happy with where it's at right now."

The right-hander especially feels like his mechanics this season have helped him locate the ball better.

"It's a tale of two people in some ways ... A huge step forward from where he finished last year just in his own personal maturity," said Blue Jays manager John Farrell.

Blue Jays: Arencibia still struggling

J.P. Arencibia is still struggling to find his swing this season. The Blue Jays backstop has watched his average slide all the way to .062 (2-for-32) following a fourth consecutive hitless game on Tuesday. However, he did have two hits and one RBI in Thursday's game against the Rays to bump his average up to .111.

Meanwhile, third baseman Brett Lawrie is starting to heat up. Lawrie has homered in two of his past four games, and has recorded multi-hit affairs three times in his past eight starts. Lawrie is hitting .429 (6-for-14) with runners in scoring position. His 10 home runs in his first 52 career games is the fastest to double-digit round-trippers in franchise history.

Royals: Butler bringing the lumber

Billy Butler has not made life easy for opposing pitchers so far this season. The veteran designated hitter has recorded multi-hit nights in six of his last eight games. Butler enjoyed a four-game stretch in which he doubled and scored a run each night between April 10-14. Butler is hitting .375 (18-for-48) this season with two home runs and nine RBIs.

Worth noting

 The Blue Jays are hitting .326 (28-for-86) with runners in scoring position this season.

This is one of three 10-game homestands for the Royals, with the next coming in the first 10 games after Kansas City hosts the 2012 All-Star Game.

With Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers at home, the Royals have now lost their first six home games of the season, a new franchise record.

I would like to see us take at least 3 of 4 against the Royals.

They have some young talented players, but I think we outmatch them.
Hochevar has struggled
Mendoza has struggled
Duffy has pitched decent, but he's facing Romero
Bruce chen vs Morrow is the only wild card in my opinion.

Hope Hutchinson pitches well his the debut.

The hype around this team is going to die real fast if we cant take 3/4 from the royals.

04-20-2012, 01:04 PM
I think mOrrows performance is based on the wind at the park. If the wind is blowing out he will get screwed. If the wind knocks the ball Down he will have a good start. Really frustrating to see that guy pitch

mtf
04-20-2012, 01:15 PM
I think the Jays will win all except the Morrow vs. Chen game.

pebloemer
04-20-2012, 01:32 PM
I voted Tampa wins 2/3 in the last series (only mentioning it to indicate I'm able to vote against the team), but I think the Jays go on a run here and sweep the Royals. Drabek starts us on the right foot tonight, Morrow has a nice rebound game, Romero stays steady and Hutchison gives us enough in his debut.

10-6 by April 23!

I also actually voted positive on this poll going 4-0 Jays sweep. And I never vote for sweeps.

Abdul Mutalib
04-20-2012, 02:29 PM
lets not get carried away here thinkin about a sweep... drabek is bound to have a bad start sooner or later & we cant expect a lot from hutch's 1st start. morrow had trouble with his mechanics and romero needs to rebound after a slightly shaky last outing.

Despite all of that, our offense could either over compensate for it or hinder some solid rebound outings. I foresee a 2-2 series split.

adid727
04-20-2012, 02:36 PM
I say we take 3. I think we can get the first two games. I think Hutchison's control should win us the 2nd game since Mendoza's last start wasn't that good. I think we win the third and lose the last one unless morrow has one of his great days.

Jays Claw
04-20-2012, 02:53 PM
We should be able to take at least the first 3 games from KC. They're not very good at manufacturing runs and only have one true threat in Billy Butler.

P.S - I have my doubts and concerns with Morrow so he'll remain the wild card starter here. If he can put together a good 7+ innings of 2-run ball, now that's just gravy.

AK-50
04-20-2012, 02:53 PM

Their offense was just as good as the Jays' last year. It's a more than capable offense, the pitching isn't very good though.

The hype around this team is going to die real fast if we cant take 3/4 from the royals.

i think losing home series to the Orioles and Rays is a much bigger issue than splitting or losing a series in KC

the top team win their home games and play close to .500 on the road.. we're 4-5 through 9 at home.. that is not gonna cut it

bomber0104
04-20-2012, 03:14 PM
The way we're playing, i think we're lucky to split.. Hochevar and Chen always mysteriously dominate us and Mendoza is a sinker baller which this team typically struggles against

Imagine if we face Alvarez. I think he'll go 9 SO no problem

dtmagnet
04-20-2012, 04:11 PM
If we can stop giving up a homerun every other inning we can sweep.

adid727
04-20-2012, 04:22 PM
If we can stop giving up a homerun every other inning we can sweep.

so true, in the last few games we put three to four hits together and manage to get 2 runs only to lose the lead on a walk and a home run in the next inning by the last guy you expect to hit a home run. :mad:

I never said those series werent big. Im just stating that after losing those two series, they need to start winning or the hype will just simply fade. The reason this series is important in context is because K.C is one of the easier teams in the league. I dont know about you but ide be more dejected after losing 3/4 in K.C than losing 2/3 vs the rays.
