Blue Jays vs Yankees – Can Toronto Get it’s Mojo Back in New York?
It’s been a bad week for the Toronto Blue Jays who stand at a season record of 77-60 (–1.80 betting units) after losing four of their last six, including Monday’s series opener against the resurgent New York Yankees (71-65, +1.17 units). The last of this three-game set takes place Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, starting at 7:05 PM ET on Sportsnet.
Next up for the Blue Jays is Marcus Stroman (3.72 FIP). He’s been in good form recently with seven quality starts in his last 11 appearances, but sadly Toronto is just 5-6 during this stretch. The good news is this Yankee team has a tiny .503 OPS against Stroman in his brief career. The bad news: Wednesday will be the first time he will see New York’s hot rookie catcher, Gary Sanchez (1.182 OPS).
The Yankees will give 2nd-year righty Luis Severino (4.64 FIP) another crack at the starting rotation on Wednesday. He’s been limited mostly to bullpen work since going on the DL in May and spending nearly two months in the minors. New York has lost all nine of Severino’s starts this year for a deficit of 10.02 units; the Jays have pounded him for a combined .955 OPS over 45 at-bats.
