The pitching hasn’t been much better for Toronto as they have allowed 708 runs.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. lead the Blue Jays offense as he is hitting .279 with 15 homers. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. appeared to be going for a big season before getting injured. Gurriel was hitting .279 with 19 homers in 79 games.
