Real Blue Jays Baseball is almost here.

Blue Jays play the Orioles at 3:00 Eastern. The game is on Sportsnet. You could also watch it on

I really can’t wait. It seems like the off-season went on forever.

We have Marco Estrada starting against Kevin Gausman.

Career vs. Baltimore Estrada is 4-1 with a 3.22 ERA in 10 games, 8 starts. Orioles have hit .182/.275/.331 against him. This spring, Marco had a 4.76 ERA in 17 innings, allowing 13 hits, no home runs, 5 walks with 13 strikeouts.

The Oriole who has hit Marco the best:

Welington Castillo: .304/.333/.826 with 4 home runs in 24 PA.

The Orioles who have hit Marco the worst:

Adam Jones: .067/.176/.133 in 17 PA.

Manny Machado: .111/.333/.278 in 24 at bats.

Career vs. Toronto Gausman is 2-3 with a 4.40 ERA in 12 games, 7 starts. Jays have hit .287/.348/.485 against him. This spring Gausman had a 1.98 ERA in 13.2 innings, allowing 8 hits, no homers, 6 walks with 18 strikeouts.
