The Jays’ roster is a shadow of its former self following the July 31 trade deadline. Mark Shapiro and the Jays’ brass dealt pitchers JA Happ, Seung-hwan Oh, John Axford, Aaron Loup and Roberto Osuna for a slew of prospects.

The young hopefuls are what is the beginning of a youth movement in Toronto. Furthermore, shortstop Lourdes Gurriel Jr. is expected to be out for two to six weeks following a leg injury. Those who are left on the Jays’ roster will be up against a Mariners’ team that has the playoffs in sight.

Unlike Toronto, Seattle acquired depth pitching at the deadline. This includes relievers Zach Duke, Adam Warren and Sam Tuivailala. Those pickups should go a long way in bolstering a Mariners’ pitching staff that sports the 17th best ERA in the Bigs (4.01).

They are only three games back of the Astros for first in the West. Seattle holds a two-game lead over the Athletics for the second wildcard spot. The Mariners feel they’re well positioned for a playoff berth. They’ll look to jump on the undermanned Jays this Thursday (10:10 PM ET).
