American League Preview from The Sports Network



Tuesday, April 16th (All times Eastern)

Chicago White Sox (5-8) at Toronto Blue Jays (6-7), 7:07 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Chicago - Dylan Axelrod (0-1, 5.79) Toronto - Josh Johnson (0-1, 11.05)

(Sports Network) - Mark Buehrle finally looked comfortable in a Toronto Blue Jays uniform in Monday's opener. Hopefully Josh Johnson can follow suit on Tuesday when takes the hill for the Blue Jays in the second of four games against the Chicago White Sox at Rogers Centre.

Johnson takes the hill after an awful performance on Thursday in Detroit that saw him allow six runs and seven hits in just 1 1/3 innings, dropping him to 0-1 on the year to go along with an obscene 11.05 ERA.

Johnson has split his two starts versus the White Sox, posting a 3.72 ERA in the process.

Meanwhile, Buehrle was terrific in Monday's opener, as he pitched into the seventh inning while J.P. Arencibia and Maicer Izturis each hit a solo home run to help Toronto to a 4-3 win.

Buehrle (1-0), who played his first 12 seasons with Chicago, gave up two runs on nine hits with two walks and three strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings against his former team while Emilio Bonifacio and Melky Cabrera each drove in a run for the Blue Jays, who have won three of four.

"It's weird rooting against those guys," Buehrle said of pitching against his former team. "I've rooted for them for 13 years and wanted them to win every game and this is the first game in I don't know how long that I'm actually rooting against them."

Dayan Viciedo went 3-for-4 with an RBI while Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez each drove in a run for the White Sox, who have lost six of seven. Gavin Floyd (0-3) dropped his third start of the year after giving up four runs on nine hits with three walks and six strikeouts in just 4 1/3 innings.

"When you leave balls up consistently, you're going to get hurt a little bit," Floyd remarked of his outing.

Getting the call for the White Sox will be righty Dylan Axelrod, who, like Johnson, is also looking to bounce back from a rough outing. After not allowing an unearned run in 5 2/3 innings of his debut, Axelrod was hit hard by the Washington Nationals on Thursday, as he gave up six hits in 3 2/3 innings. He also walked four, as he slipped to 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA.

Axelrod is 1-1 in two starts versus the Blue Jays with a 7.00 ERA.

Chicago was 6-4 against the Blue Jays last season.
