This series has lost some lustre as the Royals have slumped out of the race in the American League. These teams had a thing building with a brawl last year and the playoffs but a lot of that energy has likely dissipated.
Toronto swept KC just before the All-Star break and are in good form for this one. Hopefully it is an entertaining series.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays bats have been pretty quiet this week.
Though they won three of four in Houston to start the week they did not score a lot of runs and if you were watching the games you will have seen that when they don’t go yard it has been really difficult.
Lucky for them they do that a lot. Jose Bautista is looking better every day and the combo of Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson already have 57 homers between them.
Aaron Sachez has been brilliant this season making the Jays desire to move him to the pen to protect his arm long term such a challenge.
Every start from here on out could be his last and you don’t want to miss any given they are winning 60%+ of his starts and he is leading the AL in ERA. The bullpen is not automatic but they are getting better after a brutal April.
Kansas City Royals
A little hard to believe but the Royals are in fourth place as this is being written on Friday.
I don’t want to take anything away from their accomplishments of the last couple of seasons but I never really got behind them being an elite club.
This season the offense has fallen off the map. They are just 27th in scoring and without any significant home run threats they have to all be hitting to put runs on the board. Looks like the luck might have run out.
The highlight of the season has to be the development of lefty Danny Duffy.
He has put it all together, finally, and in his last game had one of the most dominant outings in the Majors this season – 8IP, 1 hit allowed with 16Ks and just one walk.
The back of the pen has been great once again for Wade Davis is on the DL so the depth just isn’t there.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
This is going to be a great pitching matchup. Sanchez should hold up his end of the bargain and even if he is a little off his offensive support is way better than what KC can counter with.
Duffy is dealing right now and the Blue Jays have been striking out a lot so the Royals have a great chance in this one. I am a little worried he might need to pitch a shutout though.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto
Whoever wins the first game of this series on Friday is likely to be the favourite in this one which should be a tight spread. The Jays are looking good and should get the job done.
