Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
I look for the Blue Jays to play well coming out of the break. I like them in this one.
Toronto is clearly the better team and I think they will show that on Friday.
Robbie Ray was great in his last outing and I look for him to have a similar outing in this game. The Jays should be able to hit around Jordan Lyles.
I will lay the run line with the Jays in this one.
