Kyle Drabek.......Jeremy Hellickson
3-4, 3.30 ERA..........4-0, 2.77 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Drabek used a refined two-seamer to great success during his last start against New York. Drabek had experienced difficulty throwing it for strikes but a higher catching target allowed him to keep the ball out of the dirt and just one earned run.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tb.gif
Hellickson had a strong outing against the Red Sox Wednesday night, when he allowed one run on five hits, walking one and striking out six to earn his fourth win of the season. He is 2-0 with a 3.93 ERA in three career starts against the Blue Jays.

Drew Hutchison.........Matt Moore
3-1, 4.81 ERA..........1-4, 5.20 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Hutchison recorded the second quality start of his career during the 21-year-old's last outing against the Yankees. He struggled with his control at times, but surrendered just one run on five hits during six strong innings of work.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tb.gif
After a rough start Thursday against the Red Sox that saw him throw 33 pitches in the first inning, Moore recovered to post a quality start. Nevertheless, he still took his fourth loss of the season. This will be his first career start vs. Toronto.

Ricky Romero.........James Shields
5-1, 3.64 ERA.........6-2, 3.77 ERA

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tor.gif
Toronto's ace improved to 5-1, lowering his ERA to 3.64 in a win over the Mets his last outing. Romero's been battling control issues and has walked four-plus batters three straight starts. He'll get the Rays next, whom he beat earlier this year.

http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/mlb/images/team_logos/60x60/tb.gif
Shields allowed four earned runs on seven hits in six innings, with eight strikeouts and three walks, at Tropicana Field on Friday for his second loss of the season. He is now 6-2 on the year with a 3.77 ERA.


Young arms square off in series opener

Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson gets the ball on Monday in the series opener against Toronto, looking to remain unbeaten on the season.

Tampa Bay opens a three-game set with the Blue Jays hoping for a strong finish to an eight-game homestand. The Rays are 2-3 in their last five games at Tropicana Field, including a 2-0 defeat against Atlanta on Sunday afternoon.

But Hellickson could be the answer that turns things around.

The right-hander is 4-0 with a 2.77 ERA in eight starts. He's 2-0 against the Blue Jays in three career outings, including a win on April 19 in Toronto. Hellickson is coming off a strong start against the Red Sox on Wednesday night, when he allowed one run on five hits in six innings, while striking out six against one walk.

"My fastball command is better than it has been, since I can remember anyway," Hellickson said. "The curveball is coming along pretty good. I've been saying it for a while, but I just have to get ahead of guys and throw strikes. I've been doing that the last few games."

Still, the Rays haven't won a series at home since a four-game sweep of lowly Seattle from April 30-May 3. Tampa Bay is 6-9 in its last 15 games.

"We've had some bad luck the last few weeks, but anybody we've put in there is getting the job done," Hellickson said. "I'm confident in whoever is back there."

Toronto begins a six-game road trip after going 4-3 during a seven-game homestand, which started with a two-game sweep by the Rays at the Rogers Centre and ended with a 6-5 loss to the Mets on Sunday that stopped a four-game win streak.

The Blue Jays visit St. Petersburg for the first time this season. The Rays are 4-1 against Toronto this year, but all of those wins were north of the border.

Kyle Drabek starts for Toronto and is coming off his best start of the year. He used a refined two-seamer to his advantage against the Yankees, allowing one run over seven innings to pick up his third victory.

"I think Kyle has made tremendous strides with his overall composure, the use of his two-seamer, which has allowed for added confidence," said Jays manager John Farrell.

Drabek is 3-4 with a 3.30 ERA in eight starts. In his only other start against the Rays in his career, Drabek allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings on May 5, 2011, at Tropicana Field.

Blue Jays: Gomes turning heads
Yan Gomes played in his fourth Major League game on Sunday, going 1-for-2 with an RBI and a run scored.

Gomes made the most of his playing time with third baseman Brett Lawrie serving a four-game suspension. The rookie had two hits in his debut on Thursday and followed with his first career home run on Friday. Gomes, a first baseman, played third in Lawrie's absence.

"He hasn't backed away from any challenges," Farrell said. "He doesn't have a whole lot of third base in his past -- and even when we played him at third base [during] Spring Training, he was adequate, more than adequate there in the early read of it. That's why there really was no hesitation to bring him up with Brett's situation.

But Lawrie returns from his suspension on Monday, and that could mean fewer opportunities for Gomes.

"I think, ultimately, upon Brett's return, we'll have internal discussions for a player of his stage in his career. If we can find him enough at-bats, there's a potential, with his versatility, to remain in the mix," Farrell said.

Rays: Next up, No. 101
Closer Fernando Rodney recorded career save No. 100 on Saturday night against the Braves, becoming the 127th pitcher in Major League history to reach that milestone.

Rodney didn't keep the ball, though. He gave it to a fan who will soon turn 100.

"I really don't count [saves], I know I've had too many opportunities," Rodney said. "The only thing I think is, keep working. If I continue what I do, then maybe I get more opportunities to do something."

Rodney is 13-for-13 in save opportunities, including one on Tuesday against Toronto. He allowed one run on two hits in the ninth inning against the Jays on April 19, but Rodney didn't have a chance for a save in that game.

Worth noting
Toronto is 11-9 on the road this year.

The Rays have nine players on the disabled list.

The Blue Jays are 6-10 against their rivals in the American League East.

This will be one tough series.

If Drabek doesn't pitch strikes, the Rays are going to have a field day; they capitalize on mistakes.

Hutch might go 6 strong innings.

We'll be looking for the good Romero in the last game to take down a sharp Shield

Jays Claw
05-21-2012, 02:29 PM
Could be a long series IMO. Jays have been *** kicked the last 4 years at Tropicana Field and are going up against a pitching staff on a roll. I'd be amazed if we can pull out 2/3.

Sanyo
05-21-2012, 02:44 PM
Isn't Gomes just going to be shifted to 1st to replace Lind? I don't get Ferrell's comment about Gomes possibly getting less at-bats, who's hot enough on the Jays right now, I would place Gomes over almost anyone on the Jays roster right now to be frank.

hard to see us winning this one.. we never beat the Rays in a series let alone in St. Pete..

2 out of 3 for the Rays or sweep..

i see the offense going back to its struggles.. You can't have guys like Davis, Thames and Ben getting regular ABs

wagnall
05-21-2012, 03:07 PM
In tough here, but if we are going to compete these are the guys we have to scratch out wins against. regardless who's pitching. So I'm the optimist and say Hutch will win against their youngen and Romero bounces back big time. So I'm 2 of 3. :pray:

Moves Gomes to 1st and DH EE...Something has to be done with Rasmus and Thames...the team needs them to start hitting

The Jays are going to need the bats to travel with them to St Petersburg to take some pressure off the young starters. We have several hitters that are in a pretty good groove and are now 5th in the major leagues in runs scored. Johnson, Bautista and JPA are all on fire, and Gomes is looking like he could give them a nice boost if they keep letting him play.

For a team with a fair amount of speed, they don't get very many extra base hits that don't leave the yard. They are tied for last in the majors in doubles....

Rays take 2/3, could possibly sweep the Jays.

We are playing a team that is 4-1 against us in THEIR ballpark where they are 14-5 (the best home record in the MLB). Winning this series is going to be a small miracle at best. Even with Drabek pitching a good game and Brett Lawrie returning to the lineup, I dont see us winning these ballgames.

I agree with Jpa hitting, but he DH'd on Sat. and played yesterday. Why isn't he starting at catcher, he's rested, and put Gomes at 1st with EE at DH. Gomes is hot too. You'd think we'd want all our hot hitters in the game. :confused:

lol it's not a big deal.

Maybe JF is giving the rookie a break. He's played in 4 straight games at 3rd.

Mathis is also hitting a whopping 1 of 2 vs Hellickson. So the numbers are on his side tonight :rolleyes:

Move JPA in the 4th spot while he's still hot...move Lawrie up to the 5th spot and drop EE down to the 7th spot...still don't like Gomes on the bench...Rasmus better turn it around soon too...his average is hovering around the .200 mark

North Yorker
05-21-2012, 04:46 PM
^Rasmus has been very unlucky. He has the highest LD% on the entire team iirc, and not much to show for it.

Twitchy
05-21-2012, 05:08 PM
In spite of everything Arencibia has done, let's not forget he has a 677 OPS (253 OBP) vs RHP to go along with a career 686 OPS vs RHP.

Benching him vs a lefty is bad, but benching him vs RHP isn't a bad idea.

I don't think they want to use Gomes as a catcher since he hasn't had an opportunity to work with the pitchers. I think he's more of an emergency C than a backup C. And given that Arencibia has played 5 straight days, it's the right call to give Arencibia a game off.

Not the end of the world. This is the right call here. Especially since Moore is pitching tomorrow, and I'd rather have a rested Arencibia vs the lefty (even if Moore is struggling) than give him the day off tomorrow. He'd have to have a day off for one of the games, and this one makes the most sense.

wagnall
05-21-2012, 05:13 PM
didnt Mathis catch yesterday?

Saturday he caught, Jpa Dh'd. Yesterday was a pretty fast game. Don't know why Jpa needs another day off. To me you play your hot hitters esp. against a team you need to beat. He could have kept EE at 1st and just DH'd Gomes.
But this isn't the 1st time we bring some one up and put them on the bench. Bring them up and play them esp. if they are doing well. :confused:

pretty sure gomes is the 3rd/emergency catcher on this team. And again its 162 game season, its not a bad idea to have keep JPA in the lineup as a DH especially since catching is one of the most demanding position on ones body.

EDIT: I see twitchy has made the point already. Didnt see it.

Rasmus, I think will be okay. He has been very unlikely on a whole this season.

Why isn't Thames at least pissed?

Nah...this is why they keep Thames around because he's such a "great guy."

Johann
05-21-2012, 07:45 PM
Yes its not like he helps us from the bench anyways

No, a manager does nothing.

That's just dumb to think that having Farrell likely get ejected in the 1st inning is a good idea.

He wasn't going to change the ruling in any way. It's not like the umps just decided to call it a homer. It hit something. They saw the vid. The rules say its a homer. Can't argue that.

i'm not saying Gomes should catch.. JP should catch the game...

He had saturday off the field and and afternoon game yesterday.. i'm sure he is capable of catching back to back games

again its really no big deal that he is DHing while mathis catches. blowing it way out of proportion.
