The Bautista-less Jays venture into Arlington for a resumption of hostilities. The Rangers are one game under 500 while the Jays are now three games under. With the Alen Hansen era over, the Jays will look to bounce back from a bad series in Anaheim.
Friday: Trent Thornton vs. Mike Minor
Saturday 8 pm: Pannone/Gaviglio vs. Lance Lynn
Sunday 3 pm: Clay Buchholz vs. Drew Smyly
The Rangers offense is doing well. Joey Gallo has eleven home runs. Sin Choo-Choo and Elvis Andrus are hitting well too. Hunter Pence is now a Ranger. Old nemesis Rougned Odor sports a 431 OPS.
The Rangers pitching, on the other hand, is bad. Friday's starter Mike Minor has pitched well with a 2.88 ERA but the others have ERA's over five.
The Jays will try and play better defense in Texas. Drury starts in right field tonight.
