Up next for the Tampa Bay Rays: at Toronto Blue Jays

Up next

What's new: The Jays have been struggling, not a surprise given they are openly talking about trading ace Roy Halladay — who makes what could be his last start for them tonight — and pretty much anyone else someone wants. Aaron Hill, Adam Lind, Marco Scutaro and Scott Rolen are having good seasons, and their young pitching has been impressive at times. But otherwise, it's another lost season.

Key stat: The Rays' five wins against Halladay over the past two seasons are their most against any pitcher.

Connections: Jays reliever Shawn Camp and outfielder Jose Bautista are ex-Rays, bench coach Brian Butterfield a former Eckerd assistant. Rays outfielder Gabe Gross is an ex-Jay.

Series history: Rays lead 5-1 this season; Jays lead 100-91 overall, 58-39 in Toronto
