Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays lineup has been scorching hot throughout the season, especially in the second half of the season. Josh Donaldson is having another stellar year hitting .289 with 59 extra base hits and 80 runs batted in.
Edwin Encarnacion is having a MVP caliber season. Encarnacion is hitting .269 on the year with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs.
Michael Saunders is having another solid season, he is hitting .264 on the season with 27 doubles and 49 RBIs. The Blue Jays will look to knock around Bauer in this one Friday.
The Jays have newly acquired Francisco Liriano on the mound Friday. Liriano is currently 6-12 on the season with a 5.45 E.R.A. and 125 strikeouts.
He was last in action against the Houston Astros where he went down in defeat. Liriano pitched in 5.2 innings of work where he gave up 5 earned runs on 8 hits.
He walked 2 batters and struck out 4 in the loss. He looks to bounce back from his last start out.
The Cleveland Indians lineup has really turned it around since the all-star break. Francisco Lindor is hitting .312 on the season with 38 extra base hits and 62 runs batted in.
Jose Ramirez is hitting .310 on the season with 31 doubles and 51 RBIs. Mike Napoli is near the top of the league in home runs and RBIs since the all-star break.
Napoli is currently .264 on the season with 29 home runs and 85 runs batted in. The Indians lineup will need to be red hot on the weekend in order to extend their lead in the American League Central.
The Indians have Trevor Bauer on the bump Friday. Bauer is currently 9-5 on the season with a 3.97 E.R.A. and 115 strikeouts.
He was last in action in a win against the Los Angeles Angels. Bauer pitched in 6 innings where he gave up 4 earned runs on 5 hits.
He also walked 2 and struck out 4 in the win. Look for Bauer to turn it up against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
This matchup involves a strong pitching staff and a strong lineup. I’m taking the pitching staff and the Indians in this one.
I think that Bauer is a much better pitcher than Liriano and it will show. Bauer will be able to sit on this Blue Jays lineup enough to pull out the win.
Look for the Indians lineup to knock Liriano around pretty well.
