It is going to be a chilly afternoon in Toronto where we will see Blue Jay’s Marcus Stroman take on Yankee’s Sonny Gray. New York opened up as (-120) money line favorites, but the line has dropped in favor of Toronto as the line currently sits at (-114).
New York Yankees
When you have Sonny Gray as your fourth pitcher in your rotation, then you are doing something right with you’re pitching acquisitions.
Gray is a ground ball pitcher who owns a career 3.45 ERA and 3.67 FIP. He has a modest 7.78 K/9 and does a good job not giving up walks with a 2.94 BB/9 .
The only thing that worries me about Gray is that he has a career BABIP of .276 which is pretty fortunate for a pitcher that relies on getting ground balls. At some point, maybe we’ll see some regression in that number.
New York’s lineup has had a rough time against Stroman as they have a combined slash line of .224/.283/.381 in 134 at-bats. They also have a walk-to-strikeout ratio of 10:25.
Toronto Blue Jays
Stroman is very similar to Gray in terms of their GB% (59.6%), K/9 (7.34), BB/9 (2.40) and HR/9 (0.82). Some would even argue he’s been better than Gray. He also owns a sparkly career ERA of 3.09 to go with a 3.90 FIP.
The difference between these two pitchers is Stroman’s career BABIP is right around where it should be at .305. That just tells you how well Stroman has been pitching to be posting these types of numbers.
Toronto’s lineup has not had an easy time against Gray as they own a combined slash line of
.193/.302/.239 in 109 at-bats. They’ve only managed to hit six RBIs and one HR against him, while they have a walk-to-strikeout ratio of 17:30

I expect Stroman to contain this lethal New York lineup, while we start to see some regression in Gray’s BABIP. Toronto should do just enough to get by in a chilly afternoon matchup.
