The Toronto Blue Jays (62-74, minus-10.74 betting units) should have their hands full this Wednesday when they host the red-hot Tampa Bay Rays (73-63, plus-16.83 units). Tampa Bay have won 11 of their past 13 games, while the Blue Jays have dropped five of seven. First pitch is at 7:07 PM ET on Sportsnet.

While it's not official yet at press time, ESPN has Aaron Sanchez (5.22 ERA) pegged to get the start for Toronto. Sanchez is down 1.21 units this year on a team record of 8-9, but the buzz around the Blue Jays is over the Josh Donaldson trade. The former AL MVP was shipped to Cleveland at the August 31 trade deadline for a player to be named later.

Tyler Glasnow (3.95 ERA on the season) is the official projected starter for Tampa Bay. This will be his seventh start for the Rays after coming over from the Pittsburgh Pirates in the Chris Archer non-waiver deal. Thus far, Glasnow is dead even against the baseball odds with a team record of 3-3 for Tampa, including five innings of two-hit ball in an eventual 2-1 loss to Toronto (-135 at home) on August 12.
