On Friday (May 5), the Blue Jays announced that Joe Biagini will be making his first start as a Blue Jay on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Pending the possible injury of Marcus Stroman, the Blue Jays have two (potentially three) starting rotation starts open. It is important for the Blue Jays to see how Biagini could pitch in 2+ innings, not just one inning in relief. If all goes well, Biagini will have a lock on a starting roll for the next few weeks.

Mat Latos was originally scheduled to start in Tampa, but has since been DFA’d.

“I’d be more than pleased if he gave us four” innings.” said John Gibbons after talking to the media on Friday, late afternoon.

Here is what Joe Biagini had to say:

Let’s hope that Joe Biagini can fill the needs of the Blue Jays starting pitching rotation, while several regular starters are on the DL.
