Rays reliever Matt Wisler served as the opener for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays. He lasted one inning, allowing zero runs, zero hits, and one walk while striking out one batter. The right-hander didn't factor into the final decision as Tampa Bay ultimately fell to Toronto by a score of 4-1.
Wisler is 2-2 with a 2.75 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and .211 OBA through 36 innings this season. He has posted six holds but is just 1-for-4 during save situations. He has struggled to harness his fastball and has been hit hard this season, registering a 118.8 mph max exit velocity against him as well as a 12.4 percent hard-hit rate.
