The Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies kick off interleague play this Friday. While the Phillies have struggled of late, going 4-6 over their last 10 games, they should be able to make some ground against the Jays.

Rumored to have been in on the Arrieta sweepstakes just eight months ago, the Toronto Blue Jays are now on a different path and have entered full rebuild mode. At 57-69, the Jays are making use of their flopped season and are auditioning their prospects at the big-league level. One of those prospects is pitcher Sean Reid-Foley. The first two starts of his career haven't been pretty, as he racked up an 8.68 ERA over two starts. He'll look to get his first career win against Philadelphia at home on Friday. By contrast, the former Cy Young Award winner and Ace of the Phillies' staff,

Jake Arrieta, is rounding into form when his team needs him the most. Coming off of a six-inning performance in which he surrendered only one earned run, Arrieta is poised to lead the Phillies to a postseason berth for the first time since 2011. Tune in for first pitch at 7:07 PM ET.
