Both teams are playing some good ball to start the year. Toronto is looking to do some damage on their first West Coast trip.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays are poised to take off…if they can stay healthy. They are mostly healthy in the lineup but the pitching is missing its best starter and bets relief arm. George Springer and Teoscar Hernandez returned over the weekend and they make that lineup very deep.
This is probably a bullpen day. Robbie Ray has followed Steven Matz the last couple of times through the rotation but if he does so this time it will be on shorter rest. That is unlikely.
The Jays are shuttling relievers up and down and on and off the injured list. Most of the time they are getting the outs they need though.
For all of their success, this season the A’s have struggled with the O’s…it makes no sense but they have to be hoping it is not an AL East thing with the Jays now in town. They are still not hitting the way they could.
Lefty Cole Irvin has had his moments and pitching at home should help. What won’t is a righty lineup that is stacked from top to bottom. This will be a tough go.
Keeping relievers is tough for the A’s because they are always strapped for cash. Some of the best closers in the game are guys they helped develop then moved on. If only they could keep their guys, the ones they have now have promise but this is not an elite group.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Even though the Jays’ pitching situation is unknown at the moment that is still the way I am leaning. This team is built to win a few games where they don’t get a ton from the mound and fading Irvin feels right in this spot.
