Tampa Bay Rays up next: at Toronto Blue Jays


at Blue Jays

Today through Wednesday

What's new: The Blue Jays (30-22) are one of the American League's biggest surprises, in third place in the AL East. A big reason is the long ball as Toronto leads the majors with 88, including a club-record 53 in May. The Jays are third in the AL in fielding percentage (.987), and new closer Kevin Gregg (13 saves in 15 chances) has been steady.

Key stat: RF Jose Bautista has hit 12 of his major-league-leading 16 homers in May.

Connections: Jays RHP Shawn Camp is an ex-Rays reliever.

Series history: The Rays took two of three April 23-25 at Tropicana Field. Tampa Bay went 14-4 against Toronto last season, including 6-3 at the Rogers Centre, but trail the overall series 104-102, 60-43 in Toronto.
