Blue Jays right-hander Kevin Gausman will get the start for Game 1 of Toronto’s wild-card series against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday.
Gausman was originally tabbed to pitch in Sunday’s regular-season finale against Tampa Bay, but the start was pushed back when Toronto clinched a playoff spot Saturday night.
The Twins have tabbed right-hander Pablo Lopez for the opener of the best-of-three series.
Gausman was 12-9 with a 3.16 earned-run average this season. He had 237 strikeouts over 185 innings.
Game 2 is scheduled for Wednesday. Game 3, if necessary, will be played Thursday.
The series winner will play the Houston Astros in the American League Division Series.
