The Toronto Blue Jays have announced their pitching rotation for their upcoming series against the Atlanta Braves.
The Blue Jays have not played since last Thursday, a 6-4 loss to the Washington Nationals. They were scheduled to play the Philladelphia Phillies this weekend but that series was postponed after the Phillies’ most recent opponents, the Miami Marlins, had a COVID-19 outbreak on their team.
Shoemaker was expected to start in at least one of the now-delayed games against the Phillies. He has gone the longest since his last start among Toronto’s rotation. He allowed one run over six innings in the Blue Jays’ 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on July 25.
Ryu (0-1) last pitched on Thursday against the Nationals, allowing five earned runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five across 4.1 innings of work.
Pearson made his highly anticipated big-league debut in a 4-0 loss to the Nationals last Wednesday, during which he held the defending champions scoreless over five innings of two-hit ball.
