After making a big splash in the free agency this past winter, the Diamondbacks have had a dreadful season and currently sit in last place in the NL West division. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays are in the midst of a tight division race with Boston and Baltimore.
Toronto Blue Jays
Marcus Stroman, once a top draft pick, hasn’t progressed into the ace the Jays’ had hoped for after a strong showing late last year.
On the year, he holds a 7-4 record but with a 5.15 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP and 88 Ks in 120.2 innings.
The Toronto offense has been a force once again, with MVP Josh Donaldson leading the charge hitting at a .302 clip and a .416 on-base percentage.
JD has 23 homers on the year, trailing Edwin Encarnacion’s team-leading 24. E5 currently leads the MLB with 81 RBI, one pace for an absurd 140 total.
Michael Saunders earned the final Allstar vote in the AL on the back of 16 homer and .298 first half.
Jean Segura has put together a nice season for the DBacks, leading the team in average at .304.
Jake Lamb has experienced a breakout with 21 homers and 65 RBI and a .302 average. while not even playing fulltime for portions of the year.
Paul Goldschmidt is having a down year for his standards, with “just “ 16 homers and 61 RBI, but has contributed 13 steals as well.
Patrick Corbin’s elite season in 2013 is well in the rearview mirror, as he currently has a 5.25 ERA and 1.51 WHIP this year.
He’s now 27 and has undergone Tommy John surgery that made him lose the 2014 season.
The upside is still there, as evidenced by his half-season of work in 2015 where he put together a 3.60 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP, but he hasn’t shown that form this year thus far.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
These two teams are tending in different directions, as evidenced by their opposite records in their past 10 games respectively.
Toronto is actually hitting at a better clip against LHP this year than RHP and have an above-.500 record on the road while Arizona has been awful at Chase field.
