Both of these teams are in the race in their respective divisions. Neither is the favorite but from what we have seen so far they are not going anywhere either.
The Phillies are one of the more interesting teams of the first six weeks of the season. They seem to have more than enough starting pitching but the bullpen and lineup are full of question marks. Bryce Harper has yet to have a hot streak.
They need one of those to see if they can have a nice stretch to catch the Mets and maybe build a gap with the other teams.
Vince Velasquez will break your heart but that is only because you know he is so talented. This season he was supposed to be a reliever but Matt Moore flamed out pretty quickly. In steps VV and he has been really good.
The Philly pen has been a negative this season. That especially hurts because they have been getting a lot of great efforts from the starters.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto has to be mostly happy with their positioning through the first six weeks, especially since they have only had George Springer for a couple of games. Teoscar Hernandez missed time too, he hit a couple of homers the other day in their win against the Braves.
Steven Matz was the Jays best pitcher in the month of April. In May he has been hit hard but he says he has made a tweak that should help. The Jays need him to find his form again.
The Jays bullpen has slipped to 10th in WAR. That is still impressive given all of the group’s injuries and that the fact that no team has pitched so many relief innings this season, fifth in the Majors.
Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Jays have been playing well at “home” this season. VV is the kind of guy you don’t want to get too comfortable with so I am looking to fade him here.
Steven Matz is bound for some positive regression and has some familiarity with the lineup from his time with the Mets. That might be a good thing. Hard to tell for sure.
