Toronto Blue Jays
Josh Donaldson’s career in Toronto seems to be nearly over. There are more headlines about potential trade packages and his injury problems than there are about what he’s producing on the field.
His latest injury is a tight calf, which has held him out this week. He shouldn’t miss a lot more time but he’s remained out as a precaution.
Of course, Donaldson has been just ok when he’s been on the field this season. He’s still reaching base at a decent clip but his OPS is just slightly above average.
At age 32, he’s on the wrong side of the aging curve but I believe he can still be a productive player, either if Toronto lets him DH more often or if he gets some change of scenery. The guy can hit.
JA Happ continues to be a bright spot, though. He won his third consecutive start the last time out in Philadelphia. He pitched into the seventh inning and struck out eight in that game.
You would think he will cruise against the Tigers but stranger things have happened.
As of a week or so ago, the Tigers led the Major Leagues in extra-base hits. I’m not sure if that’s still the case but they can’t be far from the top if it isn’t.
That surprised me. Turns out this team has some offensive firepower, actually. Nick Castellanos is a stud who once got a lot of attention as the up-and-comer in Detroit’s feared lineup. Now, he’s the main guy on a bad team and doesn’t nearly get the national attention he might otherwise deserve.
Castellanos is playing third base because there’s another young pup at the hot corner by the name of Jeimer Candelario who actually leads the team in OPS+ (135), a point higher than Castellanos.
Well, Miguel Cabrera actually owns the team lead in that department (148) but he’s been out for a while. He will be back for this series, though. Detroit’s lineup is no slouch and that’s with Victor Martinez not hitting.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction: I’ll take Detroit.
I sort of like the lineup. Boyd is a trickster at home, too.
