Marcus Stroman (3.81 FIP) expects to make his 31st start of the year for Toronto. He’s enjoyed another solid season for the Jays, but they’re still –1.60 units in the hole on a team record of 17-13, despite giving him 5.20 runs of support per game while allowing just 3.80 runs. Stroman threw six shutout innings in his last start against the Baltimore Orioles; the Jays lost 2-1 as –132 home faves.

The Royals have yet to officially announced a projected starter at press time, but rookie northpaw Sam Gaviglio (5.82 FIP) is in line to make his third appearance for Kansas City after coming over from the Seattle Mariners on the waiver wire. Gaviglio allowed just three earned runs in 10 combined innings during his first two K.C. starts after struggling with the Mariners. Catcher Salvador Perez (.782 OPS) will likely join him after missing three games with an intercostal strain.
