Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

Carlos Carrasco will start for the Cleveland Guardians in their series-opening matchup with the Toronto Blue Jays. Cookie faced the Blue Jays in Toronto for his last start, and things did not go well, allowing five runs on six hits in 5 innings, Carrasco was not really fooling anyone. Cleveland is going to need Carrasco to pitch much better than this if the Guardians are going to come away with a win in this matchup.

The 37-year-old Carrasco has been very up and down this season, having starts that are more than serviceable and others being less than ideal. Eight of Carrasco's 12 starts have seen him allow three runs or less, which is definitely good enough to put the Guardians in position to win. The problem is that the other four starts have seen him give up five runs or more, including eight runs in a loss to the Astros in Houston back in April. If Carrasco is not able to get back on track and consistently deliver better outings, it would not be surprising to see his time in Cleveland's rotation come to an end.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

Yariel Rodriguez will start for the Blue Jays. This will be the first major league appearance for Rodriguez since April 29th. The 27-year-old has a 4.11 ERA and 1.761 WHIP in 15.1 innings with Toronto this season, compared to a 1.77 ERA and 1.230 WHIP in 20.1 innings with Triple-A Buffalo.
