Jose Berrios (5-4, 3.86) is expected to pitch for the Blue Jays against Tylor Megill (5-3, 4.67). Both will be working on five days of rest.
Berrios vs Megill
Berrios has turned his season around following a slow start as he is 3-1 with a 2.30 ERA in his last five outings.
In his most recent outing last Sunday against the Twins in Minnesota, he pitched 5.2 scoreless innings for the win against his old team despite issuing five walks. He allowed four hits and struck out five.
Berrios’ only previous start against the Mets came in 2016 as a rookie with the Twins. He took the loss while allowing two runs in four innings.
Berrios is 3-3 with a 4.83 ERA in seven road starts this season and 1-0 with a 1.59 ERA in two daytime starts. The Blue Jays are 6-5 when Berrios takes the hill, and he has five quality starts.
Megill is coming off a rough start last Sunday in which he was tagged for six runs (four earned) and 10 hits in four innings of a no-decision against the Rockies in Colorado. He had three strikeouts and two walks.
He does have a quick move to first.
