While the Tampa Bay Rays are on the outside looking in on the AL Wildcard race, they’ll have a great opportunity to bank some wins during a four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. At press time, the Rays sit a lofty 5.5 games out of the second Wildcard spot behind the Oakland A’s. Having won 8 of their last 10 games, Tampa isn’t going away quietly.
The Rays will send Jalen Beeks to the mound on Thursday. Beeks has a 4-1 record this year with a 5.32 ERA over 44 innings pitched. The Rays acquired the first-year lefty from Boston in July and will give him a chance to develop.

Beeks will be up against right-hander Sam Gaviglio, who, like the rest of the Jays team has suffered from an abysmal season. In his last start, he pitched 3.1 innings against the Boston Red Sox and surrendered two earned runs. While the season can’t end soon enough for Gaviglio, the Jays’ recent call-ups have made a marketable impact on the club, as they’ve won four straight games. While the present isn’t pretty for the Jays, the future looks promising. Get a sneak peek this Thursday at 7:07 PM ET.
