Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays, an offensive juggernaut over the past few seasons, have been awful this season at the plate. They are next to last in the league in overall batting WAR and have the wRC+ equivalent of Dee Gordon, the slap hitting speedster for the Miami Marlins.
Much of their struggles can be chalked up to injuries; former MVP Josh Donaldson has only appeared in 9 games and Troy Tulowitzki has been injured as well having played in only 16 games.
But a lot of it is simply poor performance, Jose Bautista fell off a cliff and is hitting just .178 with a .309 OBP and only one homerun.
And Edwin Encarnacion replacement, Kendrys Morales, has been worth negative value despite hitting four homeruns.
New York Yankees
The Yankees on the other hand are the adverse of the Blue Jays, they own the second best offense in the league, much of which can be attributed to their youth movement.
Last year, after being called up Gary Sanchez went on a tear to finish with one of the best debuts in MLB history. He’s been unable to replicate that due to only five games played because of injury, but other young players have stepped up instead.
Aaron Judge is a power monster, jacking 10 homeruns already this season while also owning a .411 OBP and a wRC+ of 217. He’s been joined by another young player in Starlin Castro that seems to finally be hitting his stride with a .352 batting average in April.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
These two teams couldn’t be performing further than their preseason expectations, the Blue Jays are one of the worst teams in baseball while the Yankees are only a game out of first place in the AL East. The Yankees are simply better in every facet of the game than the Blue Jays.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8.5
Masahiro Tanaka hasn’t been his usual dominant self and Mat Latos is organizational depth at this point in the season, even with the Blue Jays not hitting, the Yankees may be able to carry this number on their own.
