Right-hander Cristian Javier (3-0, 1.75 ERA) will start for the Astros.

Javier surrendered three runs on four hits over five innings on Sunday in a no-decision against the Rays.  Javier carried an impressive 17-inning scoreless streak into this one.  He has been outstanding since rejoining the Astros.

Left-hander Steven Matz (4-2, 4.78 ERA) will start for the Blue Jays. He is coming off his second consecutive losing decision, having allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk with six strikeouts over five innings in a 5-4 loss to the Oakland Athletics on May 3.

Matz opened the season by earning the victory in his first four starts. He will make his first career start against the Astros and is 2-1 with a 4.03 ERA in four starts against the AL West.

The Astros are 13-6 versus Blue Jays.
