Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have dropped two of three in consecutive series’ and find themselves a game below .500 before this weekend’s matchup with Toronto.
Blake Snell makes his fifth start of the season, still looking for his first win.
Don’t let the latter part of the prior sentence deceive you though, Snell is more than a capable starter and has been pretty good this season.
He’s one of the harder guys to hit in all of baseball, really. He’s allowed 15 hits in over 21 innings, which isn’t a whole lot better than his career pace.
The walks really burden him though, in terms of what he gives up and how far he’s able to go in games.
Fifteen walks compared to 15 strikeouts has his ERA at 3.38 and a streak of three straight starts of no more than 15 outs.
Toronto Blue Jays
It’s really a shame that the Blue Jays of the last two seasons never had this year’s version of Marcus Stroman to head the starting rotation.
Stroman tore his achilles tendon in 2015 and just wasn’t so good last season when Toronto was competing for a pennant with one of the best lineups in the American League.
Things have changed this season. Jose Bautista looks washed up; Edwin Encarnacion is in Cleveland; and Josh Donaldson is out with a calf injury.
Even if Bautista finds his old self and Donaldson comes back, the Jays are 10 games under .500 and in last place in the AL East.
Stroman has been a bright spot, however. He’s completed two of his four starts (though lost one of those) and looks like an ace.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction: Snell and Stroman duel early, Jays get one big innings, it stays under.
Snell is really fun to watch but he just can’t seem to put it together for a full start. That said, 8.5 is too high of a total between these two teams, with these starters.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8.5 (-120)
