Featured Game | New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Why you should back the Blue Jays
Toronto has impressive traits on offense and in run prevention. The Blue Jays are above-average overall on offense, scoring 120 runs this season. Toronto is in the top five of the AL with a .237 batting average, and the Blue Jays also have intriguing power. That includes top-four marks in the American League with 53 doubles, 35 home runs, and a .392 slugging percentage.
On the mound, the Blue Jays will hand the ball to veteran right-hander Jose Berrios. Berrios finished in the top ten of Cy Young voting in 2021, posting a 3.52 ERA in 192 innings. He struck 9.6 batters per nine innings and walked only 2.1 batters per nine innings last season. From there, right-handers notably struggle against Berrios, posting an ugly .668 OPS against Berrios across a lengthy MLB career.
Why you should back the Yankees
Aaron Judge was the hero on Tuesday, and he has been one of the best players in MLB this season. Judge leads the AL with 10 home runs, posting a .626 slugging percentage in the process. He is the linchpin of New York’s offense, and the Yankees currently rank in the top five of the AL in runs scored (130), slugging percentage (.406), home runs (39), walk rate (9.8 percent), batting average (.237), and on-base percentage (.318).
Toronto has the second-worst bullpen ERA (4.32) in the American League, and the Yankees should have chances. In contrast, New York’s bullpen is the best in the AL, leading the league with a 2.38 ERA in 2022. Yankees relievers also lead the AL in ground ball rate and wins above replacement, and starting pitcher Jameson Taillon currently sports a profile that features 21 strikeouts and only two walks so far this season.
