Probable pitchers

RAYS: LH Ryan Yarbrough (0-2. 4.71)

JAYS: RH Chase Anderson (0-0, 3.00)

Rays: Yarbrough (0-2, 4.71) has struggled in his past two outings — an 8.68 ERA and a .317 opponents batting average. Allowed three homers in those starts, both against Boston, after not allowing any in his first two. Had best outing in July 25 season debut, against Blue Jays, throwing 5⅓ innings of four-hit shutout ball in the second game of the season.

Jays: Anderson made his first start of the season last week after opening the year on the injured list (oblique). Went three innings and threw 45 pitches, allowing one run, one hit and two walks with one strikeout, so he should get a longer leash. After 161 major-league starts, this is his first against the Rays.
