After some struggles of late the Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim resume their four-game series on Sunday in game four, with the Blue Jays taking the first two games and Los Angeles coming back with a win in game three.
Though the game doesn’t mean much for the Angels at this point in the season it has huge implications for the Blue Jays. In the heat of the AL East and AL Wild Card race, every game is a critical game for Toronto.
With Marcus Stroman slated for the Jays and Alex Meyer for the Angels, this should be a fun one.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels can’t seem to catch a break lately. After a rough series against the Texas Rangers they were then swept by a red-hot Mariners squad and now are in the midst of a four-game set with the powerful Toronto Blue Jays.
Perhaps the scheduling Gods didn’t know the Mariners would be so good in their first season under new management but still, what a brutal stretch of games.
Shining through the bleakness has been Mike Trout, who should win the AL MVP award.
Getting the start for Los Angeles is Alex Meyer, a serviceable pitcher but not the best, as evidenced by his last appearance that came against the Seattle Mariners where he gave up four runs in four innings of work, including two dingers early on.
With Toronto boasting an equally — if not more — impressive offense, look for him to have some trouble Saturday night.
Toronto Blue Jays
Josh Donaldson’s injury has significantly impacted the Blue Jays late in 2016 and may hurt their chances at a deep playoff run, but that’s only if they get there.
As mentioned previously the Blue Jays dropped 2 of 3 to the lackluster Tampa Bay Rays but have looked superior to the Los Angeles Angels in this series, taking them down 7-2 in game one and 5-0 in game two. (They lost game 3 tonight)
In order to come away with a win in this one Toronto will likely need to rely on their offensive might as Marcus Stroman takes the hills for the Jays. Though he hasn’t been terrible, he’s definitely not what one would call an ace, posting a 9-8 record on the year with a 4.55 ERA.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Stroman has not recorded a win since an August 14 start against the Houston Astros. He is 0-3 since in five starts.
- This is Stroman’s first start against the Angels in 2016
- Mike Trout is .500 against Stroman with a double and an RBI
Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
Los Angeles is playing the role of spoiler in this series, as they are well out of contention for any playoff spot and are now focused on getting Mike Trout that AL MVP award.
But though the Angels are currently riding a tough wave of games I have their offense waking up in this one against Stroman and pulling away for a win.

Toronto without Josh Donaldson is a completely different team. Though they can still put up decent offensive numbers, the threat surrounding the Jays is just not there anymore.
Look for Meyer to have his ups-and-downs in this one but be supported by Mike Trout and the rest of the Angels’ offense as Los Angeles takes game three.
