It is early but I feel like this series is going to help one of these teams feel good about themselves. Not totally sure which one though.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays have won two series against the Yankees already. That is making for a solid April but they need to win series against other teams too. It is very positive that Bo Bichette and Vlad Guerrero Jr. are off to such hot starts.
Steven Matz might be the second-best starter for the Jays this season. His stuff has played really well to start the season and the Jays have put up runs for him.
Toronto’s bullpen is not familiar to those outside the market but these guys can pitch. They used to be all soft tossers but now they have some flamethrowers back there.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals were 9th in scoring heading into last night. I though they would have a sneak good offense but I didn’t think they would get there without speedy Adalberto Mondesi and newcomers Carlos Santana and Andrew Benitendi providing next to nothing. This group can actually be even better.
Mike Minor is a veteran lefty. The Jays are a bad matchup as most of their best hitters are righthanded. Minor is not a disaster this season but this is not the right situation for him.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Matz is a guy I want to ride for a little while. He has good stuff and is new to the American League so not a lot of hitters are familiar with him. Toronto backs him up with good offense and a sold pen too.
