Tampa Bay Rays
Glasnow was decent in his last outing but got the no-decision in a 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
He pitched four innings giving up two hits, one earned run, and one home run while he struck out a ridiculous nine and walked none.
In 63.0 innings of work this season, Glasnow owns a solid 12.29 K/9, a high 5.00 BB/9, a solid 1.00 HR/9, and an all right 73.8% LOB%.
The end-result is a mediocre 4.14 ERA and a solid 3.59 FIP.
Tampa Bay has played mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .220/.317/.351 to go with 14 extra-base hits and 25 RBI.
Toronto Blue Jays
Stroman was able to put in a quality start in his last outing, and could have gotten the win if it weren’t for the nine surrendered runs by the bullpen in a 10-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
He went seven innings giving up just two hits and one unearned run while he struck out four and walked three.
In 91.2 innings of work this season, the right owns a mediocre 7.07 K/9, a solid 3.24 BB/9, a solid 0.79 HR/9, and a dreadful 61.3% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 5.20 ERA, but a more representable 3.83 FIP.
Toronto has played sub-par baseball in the past week only winning two of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .280/.327/.459 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 28 RBI.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction: Tampa Bay edges out Toronto on the road
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rays +123
The 6’8″ Glasnow is a huge pitcher with a lot of upside with a big arm, his only problem has been his control, which sounds like the case of Blake Snell and we see what Tampa Bay has been able to do with him.
Stroman has been solid in his last couple of starts according to his FIPs, but he is a pitcher that relies on inducing ground balls (62.7% GB%) and Tampa Bay ranks 10th in ground balls hit.
This shouldn’t bode well for Stroman who already struggles stranding base runners, so I’ll back the road dogs and the big arm of Glasnow.
