It is not long ago that these teams met in Dunedin. The Jays swept the series and seemed ready to launch. Since then the Braves have been the better team.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto did not look great over the weekend, losing two of three against Houston. Injuries are still killing this team and the hot bat of Vlad Guerreror Jr. has cooled. With eight homers from Marcus Semien and Bo Bichette each, there are not many middle infield combos providing more production.
Robbie Ray has not walked a batter in each of his last three starts. How long he can keep that up we don’t know but is has made the homers he has allowed less damaging. Toronto has won two of those three games too.
In April the Jays bullpen was in the top five in WAR, now they have sunk to 11th. A lot of that is health and overuse. Yesterday’s off day was important for this group.
Since getting swept by the Jays the Braves are 5-1 getting back to .500. No team has hit more homers than the Braves but since they are not so great at putting the ball in play they are only 11th in runs scored.
There is no starter announced yet but this is likely Max Fried. The lefty was so good a year ago but has struggled this season. Toronto is just 3-3 against lefty starters but their offense is loaded from the right side.
Atlanta’s bullpen has been about league average this season. This looks to be an offense-driven series so how that group performs is likely to influence a couple of games.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
There is a lot to like about Robbie Ray this season. Avoiding walks has been huge and he is still capable of dominating any lineup. He has given the Jays a great chance of winning each time out there.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto ML
Even though the Braves starter is unknown I am more than comfortable fading Fried, or Drew Smyly, another lefty that could be available. Neither pitcher is very confidence-inspiring right now, even with a strong lineup in support.
