- The Rays enter the series having won 4 in a row and 5 of 6. They are now tied with Baltimore for 4th place in the AL East. The Blue Jays were swept over the weekend by The Rockies. They are 3 games behind Boston.
- The Rays are 3-3 against Toronto this season. Tampa took two of three in Toronto and then lost two of three two weeks ago at the Trop.
- This marks the first stop on the longest road trip of the season for the Rays. 10 games in 1 days.
- Tonight’s starter Seth McClung is 1-1 in last 5 starts with a 2.51 ERA. In his last start, he gave up 2 runs in 7 innings while taking a no-decision against the White Sox.
- Thursday’s starter Casey Fossum is questionable with a strained hamstring.
- Toronto’s bullpen could be worn down, a common side-effect of playing in Colorado. Yesterday, Blue Jay relievers pitched 6.1 innings.
- The Jays lead the AL in hitting at .297.
- Gustavo Chacin, Greg Zaun and A. J. Burnett are currently on the DL for Toronto.
