The Oakland Athletics will try to avenge a three-game sweep last week when they visit the Toronto Blue Jays Friday night and in the process spoil the major league debut of Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

The Blue Jays, who swept the A's April 19-21 to complete a 6-1 road trip, announced after their 4-0 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday that Guerrero would be called up from Triple-A Buffalo to play Friday in the opener of the three-game series against Oakland.

Both teams had Thursday off. The A's are coming off a 6-5 walkoff win over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday to complete a sweep of the three-game series.
