New York Yankees
The Yankees have vastly underperformed this year. In the pre-season they were the odds on favorite to win the AL East. They currently sit in fourth place, with a record of 33-32.
Their struggles continued this weekend as they squared off with the Phillies in Philadelphia. They lost 8-7 Saturday and got shutout 7-0 on Sunday.
Yankees Ace Gerrit Cole has lived up to expectations this year, with an impressive 2.31 ERA, while striking out 113 batters.
In General, pitching has not been the main issue for this team. They sit at 9th with a 3.56 team ERA.
The offense for this team has been a different story. They rank 26th in Major League Baseball scoring under 4 runs per game. This is a massive surprise given all the offensive talent and power that this team possesses.
Montgomery pitched against the Blue Jays on May 27th and got the no decision. He worked 4.2 innings and yielded three earned runs.
Toronto Blue Jays
Coming into play, the Blue Jays are the third place team in the AL East.
They just took two games out of three at Fenway Park against the Red Sox this weekend. The offense exploded on Sunday as they scored 18 runs on 20 hits. 8 of those hits came via the long ball. They lead the league with 99 homers hit.
In his second year with the Blue Jays, Hyun Jin Ryu has been as advertised. He has been solid all year and has a 3.34 ERA.
Toronto pitching started the year off shaky, but has improved of late. Robbie Ray was very effective on Sunday against the Red Sox. As a team, they have an ERA just over 4.
Their offense is one of the best in baseball, scoring over 5 runs per game. Star first baseman Vladamir Guerrero JR. crushed his league leading 21st homer on Sunday.
Other key contributors to this offense are second baseman Marcus Semien and shortstop Bo Bichette.
The last time that Ryu Pitched against New York was on April 13th. He notched the win as he went 6.2 innings and did not allow an earned run.

New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Outside of Gerrit Cole, Jordan Montgomery has been a very consistent pitcher for the Yankees. With that being said, I do not expect him to pitch that well against the Blue Jays. This lineup does a really good job against lefties and I do not see that changing when this is played.
I feel that the Jays have the starting pitching advantage in this one. Ryu has been the better pitcher thus far and has been tough on the Yankees. I look for this to continue when they face off Tuesday.
The Blue Jays have been trending upward recently, while New York has been skidding. I like the Blue Jays at home as favorites.
I will take the Blue Jays on the runline.
