This AL East matchup includes two teams on opposite sides of the division.
The Tampa Bay Rays season seems to be completely over. They are 18 games behind the lead.
The Toronto Blue Jays are making a big playoff run, they are currently tied with the Baltimore Orioles for first place in the AL East.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays lineup has turned around some here in the second half of the season, but they still can’t seem to get over the hump they’ve had this season. Evan Longoria has turned his game around big time this season.
He is hitting .279 on the season with 55 extra base hits and has driven in 61 runs. Logan Forsythe is hitting .278 with 20 doubles and has posted 31 RBIs.
Brad Miller is having a good season this year with his 20 home runs to go along with 48 RBIs and a .260 average.
The Rays have Blake Snell on the mound Wednesday versus the Jays. Snell is currently 3-4 with a 2.95 E.R.A. and 56 strikeouts.
He last pitched against the Minnesota Twins where he had a no decision. Snell pitched in 5.1 innings where he gave up1 earned run on 4 hits.
He also walked 2 batters and struck out 7.
Snell will hope to get more support out of the bullpen and out of his lineup going up against the first place Jays.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays lineup is very tough at the top. Josh Donaldson, the former MVP, is leading the team overall.
Donaldson is hitting .295 on the season with 57 extra base hits and has driven in 77 runs on the year. Michael Saunders is hitting .274 on the year with 26 doubles and has 47 RBIs.
Edwin Encarnacion could be in the running for MVP coming into the end of the season. Encarnacion is hitting .265 on the season with 31 home runs and 94 runs batted in.
This Jays lineup will look to get to Snell early and get the W on the divisional foe.
The Blue Jays have their ace J.A. Happ on the bump and he has been absolutely brilliant where the Jays have been victorious in his last 10 starts. Happ is currently 15-3 on the season with a 3.09 E.R.A. and 117 strikeouts.
He last got a big win against the Houston Astros. He pitched in 6 innings where he gave up only 1 earned run on 4 hits.
Happ also struck out 6 batters and walked 1 in the win. He looks to continue his perfect second half of the season.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
This AL East matchup shouldn’t be close in my eyes. I see the Blue Jays winning this one very easily.
Happ is pitching like one of the best pitchers in all of baseball. Look for Happ to shut down this below average Ray’s lineup.
Also look for this Jays lineup to knock Snell around early and often.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Blue Jays -1.5
I’m taking the Jays in this one; it shouldn’t be very close according to the paper.
