Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette isn't sweating his team's matchup against the No. 1 seeded Tampa Bay Rays in their best-of-three wild-card series starting Tuesday.

"Zero percent intimidating," Bichette said Monday, according to Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun. "We understand they are a good team. Top to bottom they do a lot of things well, but not at all intimidated."

The eighth-seeded Blue Jays finished eight wins behind the American League East-winning Rays during the abbreviated regular season. However, the two teams played a tight season series, with Toronto outscoring Tampa Bay 48-44 despite losing six out of the 10 games.

Game 1 of the series starts at 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Tropicana Field. The Rays will send left-hander Blake Snell to the mound, while righty Matt Shoemaker will start for the Blue Jays.
