This is the second series between these teams. Toronto took the first one 2-1 and a second series win would be really helpful as they have struggled since.
New York Yankees
I am still not sure what to make of this New York team. At least in the short term they haven’t broken down yet, though I do see that as coming at some point. Gio Urshela has been a big bat for them so far. They need to get some other guys going at least.
Jameson Taillon can be intimidating out there. He has made one start and he looked really good, except for when the ball was leaving the yard. Toronto has lots of power they can unleash.
The bullpen is missing Zach Britton so far this season. He has a great track record but it hasn’t stopped the Yankees from posting the best bullpen numbers in the Majors so far.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto has been waiting for their offense to break out. They scored 15 runs in a win against the Angels over the weekend and so far top hitter Vlad Guerrero Jr. is looking good. Injuries are hurting the lineup though with George Springer still yet to play a game with his new team and last year’s HR leader, Teoscar Hernandez, out for health and safety.
Hyun-Jin Ryu is not flashy but he was excellent for the Jays a year ago and has looked really good again this season. He does not have a win yet but he has been strong for the Jays. All of his base and peripheral numbers look good so there is no reason to be shy about backing him.

Free New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
I like the Jays here. I am thinking they should be able to wait out Taillon and then get into the middle of the Yankees bullpen, where they are not as strong.
Both pitchers need to be careful with the long ball but I trust Ryu a lot more than Taillon in that area. The Jays home park this season could help both of these power-laden teams.
