    Chris Bassitt sends fiery message to Blue Jays rotation amid early struggles

    The Toronto Blue Jays have been consistently among the best teams in the American League for the past four seasons; however, they have not made it past the AL Wild Card round, winning a grand total of zero playoff games since 2020. Thus, the Blue Jays are entering the 2024 season with a chip on their shoulder. As a result, the Blue Jays haven't hit the ground running, going 6-7 through the first two weeks of the season. One of the chief struggles for the Blue Jays has been their pitching; at present, they rank 23rd in the MLB in starting pitcher ERA, and that's thanks in large part to the strong starts Jose Berrios and Yusei Kikuchi have had.
