Though there are still 139 games to play, the exasperation of the Toronto Blue Jays is beginning to show.

After being silenced two days in a row by Chicago White Sox starters Chris Sale and Jose Quintana, reigning AL MVP and Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson is calling on some of his teammates to make adjustments.

"Honestly, I don't feel like there should be a left-handed pitcher, especially two days in a row, who should be able to go through our lineup like that," Donaldson told Sportsnet's Arden Zwelling after Wednesday's 4-0 loss. "We need to re-evaluate some things. ... I think some people need to evaluate their approach."

The Blue Jays will try to get their offense rolling again when they visit the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday. On the mound for the Rays will be another left-hander in Drew Smyly, whom the Blue Jays took deep three times in their last encounter on April 4.
