Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto proved a balanced attack on Friday night in a 6–5 win in Philadelphia. Eight of the Jays’ nine starters (including the pitcher) recorded at least a hit and five different men drove in runs.
But both the starting pitchers in this game on Sunday are hot and ride a bunch of confidence.
The Blue Jays’ JA Happ continues to age gracefully. He’s even getting better in his age 35 season. Happ’s 10.8 strikeouts per nine innings is the best such mark of his career and he isn’t doing it with velocity.
What I admire about Happ is his ability to pitch to both sides of the plate against both right-handers and lefties. He’s got such an over-the-top delivery that he can move the ball to throw what amounts to several variations of the same fastball.
He’s gone 14 innings and given up five hits and two runs, strikeout out 15, in his two most recent starts. Against a young and inexperienced Phillies team, there’s a lot to like about the vet.
But Nick Pivetta has seized his opportunity to not only be an established starting pitcher in Philadelphia’s rotation, but thrive.
Jerad Eickhoff’s injury and Vince Velasquez’s inconsistency haven’t been so much under the microscope with Pivetta throwing so well after Jake Arrieta and Aaron Nola.
Pivetta has a 3.23 ERA on the season, which includes a game when he lasted just one inning, getting shelled for six runs by the Nats.
Since that start though, he has bounced back to win three straight outings, giving up one run in 19 innings. He’s only walked 12 in 53 innings because he’ll come right at you with the hard stuff. He has thrown 67 percent strikes and right around 90-100 pitches in every outing.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction: Pivetta.
Philly may have a hard time with Happ but even if it doesn’t knock him out early, it will get to that Toronto ‘pen. It’s hard to fade Philly with Pivetta at home.
