Aaron Nola: It’s Nola Day on Saturday as Aaron Nola is scheduled to make his eleventh start in 2018. He’s started his 2018 season on an excellent note, as he’s only lost two of those eleven games started and is entering the game with an excellent 6-2 record. He has faced the Blue Jays twice with one game resulting in a loss and the other in a no-decision. Nola is entering Saturday’s scheduled start with a combined 10.13 ERA against the Blue Jays from two previous starts where he allowed nine earned runs in eight innings.
Jaime Garcia: Garcia is expected to be activated from the 10-day Disabled List to make his ninth start of the season. He’s been sidelined since May 18 with left shoulder inflammation. The Mexican-born lefty has faced the Phillies for a total of twelve games, with ten of them being starts.
Against the Phillies, Garcia is 3-5 with a 2.92 ERA in his career. In 2018, he’s 2-3 with a 6.28 ERA for Toronto.
