The Jays enter Yankees Stadium in this battle of the under achieving AL east teams.
However, the Yankees have turned it around as of late winning 5 straight. The Jays are still looking to look for some consistency and are hovering around .500.
Happ is swapping with Sanchez for this start and Sabathia is going for the Yankees.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays have really struggled to put up runs this season and in their last 7 games, they’ve put up just 25 runs and only had 3 once in that stretch. They’ve managed to win 3 of their last 4 games but are battling inconsistency all season.
Their team batting average is 24th in the MLB at .236 but they can still hit the long ball, with 58 on the season ranking them 7th in the league.
This is mainly the way they win ball games if they do, by hitting a few dingers.
Fortunately, the Jays pitching has been very good this season and Happ is no exception. He is 5-2 with a 3.43 era but has slowed down slightly as of late.
He gave up 8 on March 16th against the Rays and gave up 3 in the 8th against Minnesota after pitching 7 shutout innings, blowing a 2 run lead.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are on fire as they’ve won 5 straight games and 7 of their last 9. They’ve scored 40 runs during this stretch, which is not a tremendous amount of runs but they’ve put up at least 4 in the last 5 games.
This is promising considering they average just 3.9 on the season, their bats look to be coming around.
Sabathia is 3-2 with a 3.41 era and as of late, he’s given up just 1 run in his last 2 outings over 1 innings. He’s given up no more than 3 all season long.
His outings are also being stretched out over his last 3, going 6, 7 and 6 innings respectively.
There is always a lot of confidence when CC is pitching for the Yankees.

This is a very even matchup, both from a pitching and hitting perspective. Being that Yankees are hot and at home, look for them to get the W on this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Yankees ML
Both teams don’t put up a whole lot of runs. Yankees during this hot streak are winning with pitching mainly and the Jays have not hit well all season, with only the occasional big game. CC and Happ usually go deep into a ball game and give up few. Take the under.
