KEY GAME INFORMATION
TORONTO: 2016: 89-73, second place
Manager: John Gibbons (10th season)
Who's new? 1B/DH Kendrys Morales, C Jarrod Saltalamacchia, IF/OF Steve Pearce, IF Lourdes Gurriel, LHP J.P. Howell, RHP Joe Smith
Who's gone? 1B/DH Edwin Encarnacion, OF Michael Saunders, C Josh Thole, C Dioner Navarro, OF Junior Lake, RHP R.A. Dickey, LHP Brett Cecil, RHP Joaquin Benoit
Projected lineup: 2B Devon Travis (.300, 11 HR, 50 RBI), 3B Josh Donaldson (.284, 37, 99), RF Jose Bautista (.234, 22, 69), DH Kendrys Morales (.263, 30, 93 with Royals), SS Troy Tulowitzki (.254, 24, 79), C Russell Martin (.231, 20, 74), 1B Justin Smoak (.217, 14, 34), CF Kevin Pillar (.266, 7, 53, 14 SB), LF Ezequiel Carrera (.248, 6, 23)
Rotation: RH Marco Estrada (9-9, 3.48 ERA), LH J.A. Happ (20-4, 3.18), RH Marcus Stroman (9-10, 4.37), RH Aaron Sanchez (15-2, 3.00), LH Francisco Liriano (8-13, 4.69 with Pirates and Blue Jays)
Key relievers: RH Roberto Osuna (4-3, 2.68, 36/42 SV), RH Jason Grilli (6-4, 3.64), RH Joe Biagini (4-3, 3.06), LH J.P. Howell (1-1, 4.09 with Dodgers), RH Joe Smith (1-4, 3.82 with Angels), LH Aaron Loup (0-0, 5.02)
Hot spots: bullpen. The Blue Jays signed only a couple high-profile free agents (retaining Bautista, adding Morales) and brought in many lower-profile veterans mostly to compete for bullpen jobs. Howell and Smith, signed to low-risk deals, are all but guaranteed jobs. But what of Dominic Leone, Mat Latos, Mike Bolsinger, Lucas Harrell and Leonel Campos? Toronto seems to be crowd-sourcing its middle innings with low-risk, right-handed options. Up to a half-dozen pitchers could be competing for one or two jobs.
Outlook: The Blue Jays' roster is enviably balanced, albeit among the older ones in the league. Toronto led the AL in ERA last year. Their entire starting rotation returns, and their veteran bullpen is set up well to support second-year closer Osuna. Ironically, the youngest player in the Jays' starting lineup, 26-year-old Travis, has the biggest health concern of the bunch. He didn't appear in a spring training game until recently because of offseason knee surgery. Encarnacion, who was good for .270/30/100 every year, will be missed. The question now is whether Morales (33), Bautista (36), Tulowitzki (32) and Martin (34) are still close enough to their primes to power another playoff run.
TEXAS: 2016: 95-67, first place
Manager: Jeff Banister (third season)
Who's new? 1B Mike Napoli, 1B James Loney, INF Will Middlebrooks, RHP Andrew Cashner, RHP Tyson Ross, RHP Mike Hauschild
Who's gone? 1B Mitch Moreland, INF/OF Ian Desmond, OF/DH Carlos Beltran, RHP Derek Holland, RHP Colby Lewis, RHP Shawn Tolleson, RHP Lucas Harrell
Projected lineup: CF Carlos Gomez (.231, 13 HR, 53 RBI, 18 SB in 118 games with Astros and Rangers), DH Shin-Soo Choo (.242, 7, 17, 6 in 48 games), 3B Adrian Beltre (.300, 32, 104), 1B Mike Napoli (.239, 34, 101 with Indians), 2B Rougned Odor (.271, 33, 88, 14 SB), C Jonathan Lucroy (.292, 24, 81 with Brewers and Rangers), RF Nomar Mazara (.266, 20, 64), SS Elvis Andrus (.302, 8, 69, 24 SB), LF Jurickson Profar (.239, 5, 20) or Ryan Rua (.258, 8, 22, 9 SB)
Rotation: LH Cole Hamels (15-5, 3.32 ERA), RH Yu Darvish (7-5, 3.42 in 17 games), LH Martin Perez (10-11, 4.39), RH A.J. Griffin (7-4, 5.07), RH Andrew Cashner (5-11, 5.25 with Padres and Marlins)
Key relievers: RH Sam Dyson (3-2, 2.43, 38/43 SV), RH Matt Bush (7-2, 2.48), RH Jeremy Jeffress (27/28 SV with Brewers and Rangers), RH Tony Barnette (7-3, 2.09), LH Alex Claudio (4-1, 2.79), RH Keone Kela (5-1, 6.09)
Hot spots: Designated hitter and left field. Choo, Napoli and Joey Gallo are all candidates to DH. Gallo, a perennial prospect with prodigious power, can make it interesting by seizing his first-ever Opening Day roster spot. Otherwise Napoli (a first baseman) and Choo (an outfielder) can switch off as needed. Moving Desmond to the outfield was successful enough last year that the Rangers are taking a similar approach with Profar. The oft-injured 24-year-old will try to break camp as a left fielder, platooning with Rua.
Outlook: Coming off back-to-back division titles, the Rangers begin 2017 with a weakened farm system and the footsteps of the Astros and Mariners passing them by ' or at least catching up. There's still a lot to like here. Napoli was a huge bargain on a $6 million contract following his 34-homer season in Cleveland. He'll join Beltre and Odor to form a dangerous middle of the order. Darvish is entering his first full season back from Tommy John surgery, and he and catcher Lucroy are entering their long-awaited walk years. This isn't the deepest roster in the AL but it's capable of winning another division title if its stars can avoid the disabled list.
PREVIEW
Rangers rookie Bibens-Dirkx gets another shot at Jays
 

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers right-hander Austin Bibens-Dirkx has gotten over the star-struck phase of making his major league debut at the age of 32.

Now Bibens-Dirkx (2-0, 3.28 ERA) is squarely focused on helping the Rangers' rotation continue its recent string of success when he squares off against Toronto and right-hander Marco Estrada (4-5, 4.54 ERA) on Monday as the Rangers and Blue Jays open a four-game series.

Bibens-Dirkx played a big role in the recent rotation surge in his last start. Against the Washington Nationals, he allowed a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first but that was the lone run he allowed in seven innings as he picked up his first victory as a starter.

Part of the reason for his success has been his ability to simplify the game and just pitch.

"They're human beings," Bibens-Dirkx said. "They can get out. When you see big-league guys, you see names. You can see them get out. That's one of the things I've learned throughout the years is if you make a quality pitch, you have a chance. If you make a mistake, it won't turn out too well for you. That's probably the biggest surprise is I've been able to make quality pitches and get big-league guys out."

While Monday's game will be only his eighth appearance, Bibens-Dirkx has faced the Jays before. He pitched four innings in relief on May 26, allowing three runs and striking out five. He also gave up two homers.

Bibens-Dirkx knows he'll have to make adjustments from that outing.

"We're going to have to have a little bit of a different game plan," he said. "I know they're going to have a lot more of a scouting report on me. I've got to make as many quality pitches as possible. I have to be a little smarter about making pitches and keeping the ball down. They have a lot of power guys in the lineup."

Estrada will have his hands full against the Rangers, too. He's struggled throughout June, losing all three of his starts and not pitching more than 5 2/3 innings. He has a 12.08 ERA in June and was blasted by Tampa Bay for six runs on 2 hits in 3 1/3 innings in his last start.

His last win did come against Texas, as he allowed one run in six innings on May 27. The Rangers should provide Estrada with a chance to get going. He's 2-1 for his career against Texas with a 2.40 ERA in five starts.

The Jays, who avoided getting swept by the Chicago White Sox with a 7-3 win Sunday, are two games under .500 and general manager Ross Atkins knows his team needs to get going soon. Toronto is 5-5 in its last 10 games and in last place in the American League East.

"No question, I think we'll have a pretty good idea in two weeks of where things stand," said Atkins to Sportsnet.ca. "That might not be the case, but it feels as though some things are going to crystalize in the coming weeks, and certainly beyond that stretch, we'll have a real good feel for how strong this team is."
