The Red Sox and Blue Jays will meet on Saturday afternoon in the second of their three game set at Rogers Centre. On Friday night in the series opener the Blue Jays will have Aaron Sanchez match up against Joe Kelly.
The Red Sox have beaten the Blue Jays in four of seven games earlier this season.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox have the best offense in baseball and it’s not close. Boston is first in runs, batting average, and slugging percentage. The Sox are also second in on base percentage.
Jackie Bradley Jr had his 29-game hit streak snapped against Colorado on Thursday night. Bradley Jr is hitting .341 this season to go along with eight homers and 34 RBI.
Xander Bogarts (.347), Bradley Jr, and David Ortiz (.337) are all in the top five in batting average in the American League.
Rick Porcello is 7-2 with a 3.47 ERA in nine starts. Porcello has allowed only 54 hits in 57 innings and has an impressive WHIP (1.09).
The Red Sox are 7-2 in Porcello’s starts this season.
Porcello is 2-2 with a 4.07 ERA on the road this season.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays are coming off a nice series win against a hot New York Yankees team. Toronto won two of three games at Yankee Stadium.
Russell Martin found his power in the second game of the series when he went deep twice.
They were Martin’s first two homers of the season.
Toronto hasn’t lived up to their potential as contenders. A big reason has been the struggles of their big trio. Josh Donaldson has 11 homers but is only batting .242. Jose Bautista is only batting .238 with 10 home runs.
Edwin Encarnacion has been abysmal hitting .242 with nine homers.
Once the big bats get going the Blue Jays will be a force.
Aaron Sanchez has done a terrific job in his first full season as a starter. The 23-year-old is 4-1 with a 3.20 ERA. Sanchez has allowed 51 hits in 59 innings. The problem has been command at times (21 BB).
At home, Sanchez is 0-1 with a 5.19 ERA in three starts.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Porcello has been a bright spot in the Red Sox rotation and I expect him to contain a struggling Blue Jays offense.
4* Free MLB Betting Prediction: Under
Stroman is supposed to be the ace of the Blue Jays pitching staff.
MLB Baseball Free Score Prediction: Toronto 4 – Boston 3
So far he has been decent but he hasn’t pitched up to his potential. A gem against an elite Red Sox offense can be the beginning.
