Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays backed a solid performance by Robbies Ray with nine runs in the win last night. The offense had been pretty quiet for the first couple of games so the explosion was welcome.
Hyun-Jin Ryu is making this start after coming off the injured list. He has been good this season but you have to wonder about the situation and what he is ready for/what they will let him do. They really need him to be healthy.
Toronto’s pen was strong yesterday, just one run allowed in support of a nice start from Robbie Ray. That has been the norm this season. The gro has been a strength.
Oakland starts the day in first in the AL West. They lost yesterday but this is a solid group, though you think they would be better than 11-9 at home. I am still looking for more from this team.
Mike Fiers has only made one start for the A’s this season. He looked alright, he might not have many elite starts but he rarely doesn’t give them a chance to win.
The A’s bullpen got hit hard yesterday, giving up seven runs in the last two innings. Lou Trivino was a possible closer candidate but he has struggled in leverage spots this season.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
I like the Jays but I am a little nervous about Ryu. I need the Jays to get him the lead so he can stay out there as long as possible. I am not hearing anything about a pitch count but it might be in effect.
