Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays opened the season with a strong start by Marco Estrada but ultimately lost to the Orioles in extra innnings, 3-2. Following a season in which the Blue Jays were among the league leaders in OBP, they continued to have success getting men on base.
They had 17 baserunners in the game, but could only muster two runs in 11 innings and zero runs after the 6th.
They hope that veteran J.A. Happ can keep the ship on course in Wednesday’s game.
Happ has had a weird career, from 2011 through 2014 he never had an ERA under 4.22; but he’s an innings eating lefty so he always could find work.
Yet at the end of 2015 with the Pittsburgh Pirates he had a 1.85 ERA over 66 innings and followed that up in 2016 with nearly 200 innings and a 3.13 ERA with Toronto.
Happ may have found new life as a 34 year old pitcher, and has probably added a few years to his career with his recent success.
The Orioles are coming off of a win in which they beat the Blue Jays in extra innings and actually pitched the best relief pitcher in baseball, Zach Britton.
The Orioles actually used Britton for two innings of scoreless ball, in which he did allow four baserunners to only a single strikeout.
The Orioles will have former elite level prospect Dylan Bundy toeing the rubber on Wednesday against a formidable Blue Jays lineup.
Bundy was as hyped as a prospect could be early in his career as a minor leaguer, but has fallen back to earth over the past couple of years.
Drafted out of high school, last year at age 23 was Bundy’s first season as a regular for the big league team.
He posted a respectable 109.2 innings and had an ERA just over 4, with a K/9 of 8.53.
The Orioles hope that he fulfills some of his hype this year, with one full season under his belt, as the Orioles will again charge towards the playoffs.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
These teams are about as evenly matched as possible with similar strengths and weaknesses. Both teams employ talented hitters throughout the lineup but can have struggles with starting pitching.
Yet when playing against each other, tend to have low scoring affairs. Expect the same in a Toronto win behind the experience of Happ.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 9
The trends point to another low scoring game between these two teams, both pitchers are respectable and this early in the season, it can take time for the bats to come alive.
