Baltimore vs Toronto Probable Pitchers

Orioles right-hander Tyler Wells is 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA in his last three starts. In 12 starts this year, he’s only given up three or more earned runs on four occasions. Wells has also worked five or more innings three times in his last four starts after doing so just three times through his first eight starts.

Wells is a disappointing 2-4 with a 4.80 ERA in seven road starts this season. He’s 2-3 with a 5.63 in six starts during day games. As well, Wells is 0-1 with a 21.90 ERA when starting in a domed stadium, so he’d best hope they’ve got the Rogers Centre roof open for this game.

Wells is 1-1 with a 10.80 ERA in six games against the Blue Jays. None of those appearances were starts. He’s pitched just 1.1 innings at the Rogers Centre, allowing no runs.

Fortunately for the Blue Jays, right-hander Kevin Gausman is locating his pitches much better than he does major American cities. As the Blue Jays played on the weekend at Detroit, Gausman admitted to shock at discovering the Motor City was directly across the border from Canada.

Not gunna lie I had no clue how close Detroit was to Canada. I was shocked we had so many Blue Jays fans there ???

Gausman rates among the top 4% of MLB pitchers in base on balls percentage (3.4). He also leads the American League in FIP (1.75) and strikeouts to walks ratio (7.70).

An Orioles pitcher from 2003-18, Gausman is facing his old team for the first time. He’s 5-5 with a 3.78 ERA in 18 career appearances at Rogers Centre.

Wells has already set career highs for wins and for innings pitched in a game (6) this season. However, his road struggles and day game difficulties are hard to overlook.
