The Toronto Blue Jays will host the Boston Red Sox for four-game head-to-head weekend series beginning on Friday. This will be a big matchup between AL East foes as both teams will need a strong showing if they hope to gain ground on Tampa Bay for the division lead.
Boston Red Sox
After finishing with the 4th worst record last season, Boston has bounced back in a big way this year.
The Red Sox are 64-46, only 1.5 games behind the Rays for the AL East division lead. Overall they have the 3rd best record in the American League.
Rafael Devers leads the team with 27 HR’s and 82 RBI’s while J.D Martinez is also putting up substantial power numbers with 21 HR’s and 68 RBI’s.
The Red Sox made a huge trade before the deadline, adding All-Star outfield Kyle Schwarber from the Washington Nationals. The lefty slugger has played in 72 games this season and has 25 HR’s and 53 RBI’s, with a .340 on-base percentage.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays will look to continue their successful return to the Rogers Center with a big 4 game series with the Red Sox this weekend. So far on the homestand Toronto swept Kansas City and won 3 of 4 games against Cleveland.
Toronto finds themselves at 4th place in the AL East, 6.5 games behind the AL best Tampa Bay Rays. The division race has become highly contested as all teams made some moves at the trade deadline to try and bolster their lineups.
As a team, Toronto is 2nd in the MLB with a .265 batting average, 3rd with 545 runs scored, and 2nd with 163 home runs.
