This is the second series of the season for these rivals. They split a two gamer in Boston last month.
Boston Red Sox
These teams have the same number of losses. Boston has been winning thanks to a strong offense and just enough pitching. They took two of three from the Angels over the weekend.
Eduardo Rodriguez has a very nice 5-1 record. He was not as sharp in his last outing and is just 5-4 lifetime against Toronto. The Jays lineup is tailor made to do damage against lefties.
The Red Sox bullpen is third in the Majors according to FanGraphs. With Matt Barnes in the closer role they are doing a great job shutting down teams late and covering for starters who struggle.
The Philly pen has been a negative this season. That especially hurts because they have been getting a lot of great efforts from the starters.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays won on Saturday and Sunday against Philadelphia. They are second in the Majors in homers, pretty impressive given that George Springer has barely played and Teoscar Hernandez missed time too.
There is no started listed yet but I would think it would be Hyun-Jin Ryu. Nate Pearson is a possibility, though he is a total wild card right now. Ryu is a lefty which is not ideal against Boston but he is also one of the most consistent starters in the game.
Toronto’s bullpen got hit around a little by Philadelphia. Jordan Romano has looked good in the closer role lately though and they have a day off on Monday to get things organized.
Free Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Jays have two appealing options and in general I like the form of the club better than what Boston is right now. It is not that the Red Sox have been playing poorly, far from it. On the road and with a lefty on the hill Toronto is just the better bet.
