Career stats

Lewis’ penchant for giving up homers could hurt him vs. Toronto's powerful lineup. He allowed his seventh homer, the most in the AL at the time, in his last start vs. the Angels. He lasted seven innings, and has gone at least six in every start.

Sanchez has held the opposition to two earned runs or fewer in 7 of his last 8 starts dating back to 2015. He has never started a game vs. the Rangers, but he's still very familiar with them after pitching out of the bullpen in last year's ALDS.

Career stats

Happ finished his last outing ranked 2nd in the AL with eight ground-ball double plays. The ability to induce grounders has been a pleasant surprise this season and one of the main reasons he has yet to allow more than three earned runs in a start.

Maeda had his start delayed to Friday so he, instead of the southpaw Alex Wood, could face the Blue Jays and their right-handed sluggers. The Japanese rookie is coming off the first loss of his MLB career, a bump in an otherwise excellent start.

Career stats

Stroman will face the Dodgers for the first time. He is coming off a career-best nine strikeouts against the Rays and used four pitches in his arsenal to reach that total. The sinker is his bread and butter, but his six-pitch mix has been key.
