Division-leadings Toronto Blue Jays will roll into New York to face off against the rebuilding Yankees team… which still feels strange to finally say.
Toronto Blue Jays
Marco Estrada has been a great find for the Blue Jays’ team, as evidenced by his rotation-leading 1.04 WHIP.
On the year, Estrada owns a 7-5 record with a 2.95 ERA and 121 strikeouts- which are just six back of the team lead behind young phenom Aaron Sanchez.
The Jays’ offense is their calling card, with superstars Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion leading the charge.
The former, last year’s AL MVP, has slugged 28 homers this year with a .292 average.
The latter, E5, leads the team in homers with 33 and RBI at 97, which is tops in the entire MLB.
New York Yankees
Michael Pineda has been a very effective MLB pitcher, when healthy, prior to this season.
Maybe the injuries are starting to take their toll, or maybe it’s just a down year, but Pineda enters the game with a 5.07 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.
The Yankees have underdone drastic changes in the recent month, sending off stars Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller, Carlos Beltran and DFA’ing Alex Rodriguez.
In are some top prospects in Aaron Judge and Tyler Austin, who hit back-to-back homers in their first career at-bats. Also joining the two is top catching prospect, Gary Sanchez.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Yankees are 6-4 in their last 10 games
- the Blue Jays are 6-4 in their past 10
- Toronto is 31-25 on the road
Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
While the recent call-ups may be breathing new life into the aging Yankees’ squad, they’ll send Michael Pineda to the mound as the underdog in this pitching matchup.
