The Chicago White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Rogers Centre.

James Shields will be the starting pitcher for the White Sox on this day. Right hander Shields is 1-0 this season with a 1.62 ERA.

The Blue Jays will counter Shields with J.A. Happ. Left hander Happ has a 4.31 ERA to go along with a 1-4 record this season.

Shields was in the process of erasing the memory of a disastrous 2016 season – 6-19 and a 5.85 ERA combined with Chicago and San Diego – when he began 2017 by allowing one run in each of his three starts over a combined 16 2/3 innings. The 35-year-old Californian threw 90 pitches in his final outing at Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, and allowed five earned runs while striking out 14 in 14 innings over his three rehab starts. Jose Bautista is 10-for-31 with five home runs, eight RBIs, five walks and eight strikeouts versus Shields, who is 12-6 with a 3.28 ERA in 24 starts versus Toronto and 4-3, 4.09 in 10 turns at Rogers Centre.

Happ allowed six hits and one walk while striking out eight in six innings of a 4-0 victory at Seattle on June 11 in his third start since returning from the disabled list after an elbow injury sidelined him the same day Shields sustained his ailment. “I felt strong out there,” the 34-year-old Illinois native, who is 15-6 in starts with six or more days’ rest, told reporters. “I felt like I had probably more life than I had in my first two outings in my fastball today and I still felt strong. That’s a good sign for sure.” Happ is 1-2 with a 3.93 ERA in three starts versus Chicago with Todd Frazier (3-for-10) and Melky Cabrera (2-for-6) each taking him deep.

Oddsmakers currently have the Blue Jays listed as 201-moneyline favorites versus the White Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

James Shields makes his first start in more than two months Sunday when the visiting Chicago White Sox try for their 10th victory in the last 11 meetings and a three-game sweep over the Toronto Blue Jays. Shields hopes to get more support from Matt Davidson, who homered for the fifth time in the past six games in Saturday’s 5-2 victory which gave Chicago (31-36) – last in the American League Central, but within striking distance of first – three straight victories and five wins in six games.

Shields sustained a strained right lat April 16, retarding his fast start to the season and sending him to the disabled list for the first time in his 12-year career. ” … I’m still getting my arm back in shape. I feel like it’s pretty good right now. I feel pretty solid to go,” Shields told reporters after his final rehab start. Toronto (32-35) continues to spin its wheels as it sits last in the AL East, going 9-9 in its last 18 games. J.A. Happ takes the ball for the Blue Jays after winning his first game of the season last time out, returning to the form that saw him go 20-4 in 2016 and finish an inexplicable sixth in American League Cy Young Award voting.

Last time out for Toronto, they were a 5-2 loser as they battled the White Sox on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the White Sox at 205 were rewarded, while the 7 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Chicago was a 5-2 winner on the road against the Blue Jays. Bettors on Chicago at 205 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
