Gaviglio staked his claim to a spot in the Blue Jays' rotation by tossing 5 1/3 scoreless innings vs. Oakland his last time out. With Jaime Garcia set to return soon, Gaviglio will need to keep pitching well to hang onto his starting job.

Eflin has fared well since replacing Ben Lively in the rotation, although he struggled for the first time over the weekend against the Cardinals. But his spot in the rotation seems secure for now with Jerad Eickhoff suffering a setback in Triple-A.

Garcia will come off the 10-day DL in time to make this start. He received clearance after throwing a bullpen session on Thursday. In the end, the inflammation in his left shoulder forced him to miss just one start.

Nola looks like a lock to be a National League All-Star as he has emerged as the Phillies’ ace and one of the best pitchers in baseball. He took that step as his changeup has been almost as devastating as his curveball.

Velasquez won each of his first three starts in May before an unearned run in his previous outing contributed to a loss. The right-hander has missed more bats this month thanks in part to an uptick in use of his slider over the changeup.
