Wood made a mechanical change before Friday’s start vs. the Padres and was handsomely rewarded for it, striking out nine while allowing one earned run in seven innings. Improving his consistency has been his main goal so far this season.

Career stats

Smyly has been the Rays’ best starter this season, but has little to show for his efforts. He ranks among the AL leaders in K's, which he attributes to getting ahead in counts. Due to his deceptive delivery, Smyly's pitches get on hitters quicker.

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.
