Jays announce starting pitcher for this afternoon against Dodgers

Published April 28, 2024 at 1:54 PM

In today's highly anticipated clash between the Blue Jays and the Dodgers, all eyes are fixed firmly on starting pitcher Kevin Gausman as he looks to finally notch his first win of the season and was announced as starting pitcher.

Gausman's performance thus far has left much to be desired, sporting a disappointing 0-3 record alongside a bloated 5.57 ERA and a modest 18 strikeouts. For a pitcher of Gausman's caliber, these statistics simply don't do justice to his potential as a dominant force on the mound.

Adding to the challenge for Gausman is the formidable lineup of the Dodgers, boasting All-Star talents such as Shohei Ohtani, whose prowess at the plate has proven difficult for even the most seasoned pitchers to handle. As Gausman takes to the mound, he faces a daunting task in navigating through the Dodgers' lineup and keeping their potent offense in check.

Despite the daunting opposition, the Blue Jays are pinning their hopes on Gausman to deliver a standout performance and help steer them back on course. With the lineup grappling with inconsistency, a stellar outing from Gausman could provide the spark needed to ignite a much-needed turnaround in fortunes.

As the countdown to the first pitch at 1:37 Eastern Time draws near, anticipation and excitement are palpable among fans on both sides. Can Kevin Gausman rise to the occasion and silence the doubters by securing that elusive first win? Blue Jays faithfuls certainly believe so, as they eagerly await the outcome of this pivotal matchup against the formidable Dodgers.
