Jays, once again, look to get back to .500.
Michael Saunders and Troy Tulowitzki get the day off. We get Ezequiel leading off and Darwin Barney gets a start.
Sonny Gray gets his 4th start of the season, he's 2-1 with a 2.33 ERA. In 19.1 innings he's allowed 16 hits, 8 walks and has 17 strikeouts. The Jays have to pick someone to end their offensive slump against, why not him.
Aaron Sanchez is also making his 4th start, he is 1-0 with a 1.35 ERA. In 20 innings, he's allowed 10 hits, 7 walks and has 20 strikeouts.
There is this:

Chris Colabello is not listed as being on the Jays bench as I type this. Likely we will hear new before the game. Well, edit that...Colabello has been suspended for PED use. WOW.
