The reigning World Series Champs take on a serious contender at the hitter friendly Rogers Centre in Toronto.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City is more known for their contact and on-base skills than their power, though the hitter friendly Rogers Centre in Toronto certainly won’t hurt.
They will enter the matchup in 2nd place in the MLB in with a .275 batting average, but will face off against the unpredictable knuckleballer RA Dickey.
Chris Young has had some productive years in his career, such as 2015 where he had a 3.09 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP despite recording just 83 strikeouts in 123.1 innings.
Unfortunately for Young and the Royals, the fortunes have not continued this season as he owns a 2-7 record with a 6.24 ERA and 1.58 WHIP and has allowed 22 homers in 57.2 innings.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays’ offense has been rolling as of late, amassing 26 runs in their past two games against the red hot Indians team. Toronto now sits tied for 2nd overall with Seattle at 123 homeruns on the year.
They are led by incumbent slugger Edwin Encarnacion, who has 22 HR, and is followed closely by reigning AL-MVP Josh Donaldson and his 20 dingers.
RA Dickey is a tough pitcher to figure out, as his start-by-start performance all hinges on how the knuckleball is moving that day.
For the season, he has a respectable 4.21 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, which in generally higher as the knuckleball is harder to control.
He should be able to add to his 5-9 record though, as the Jays’ offense is likely to give him plenty of run support in this matchup.
