Toronto Blue Jays
Happ was solid in his last start collecting the win against the Baltimore Orioles as he went six innings giving up one run off of five hits while striking out nine and walking three. It was his first quality start of the year, while he currently owns a very efficient BB:K ratio of 5:23.
He has been very effective striking out batters with a 12.94 K/9, while he doesn’t give up the free bases often with a BB/9 of 2.81. His problem has been the long ball as righties have been clobbering him with a .528 SLG% to go along with four home runs to start the season.
After a fast start to the season, Toronto’s bats are slowly starting to cool off slashing .217/.300/.379 to go along with 16 extra-base hits and 27 RBI in the last week. They rank 12th in walks with 50, while they rank 7th in strikeouts with 130.
Tomlin was able to rebound against the Detroit Tigers after giving up eight earned and four homers in his first start of the season. He was able to go five scoreless-innings giving up four hits while striking out three and walking two. Tomlin owns a measly 3:4 BB:K ratio.
His 28.1% GB% is down from his career average of 39%, while his HR/FB ratio of 25.0% is way above his career average of 13.7%. The output has been a 10.05 FIP. His first game of the season has really skewed the numbers, while his last start was a major improvement, he just needs to work on the swing-and-misses.
Cleveland’s lineup is starting to get it together as they have slashed .244/.306/.369 and have hit 16 extra-base hits and 24 RBI in the last week. They rank 17th in walks with 49, while they rank 20th in strikeouts with 112.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Cleveland sneaks past Toronto
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland -131
Toronto’s lineup is starting to cool off, while Cleveland’s lineup has enough righties and switch hitters to play to Happ’s weakness. Tomlin has rebounded nicely from his disastrous first start and I like him to put in another okay performance.
