Yankees vs Blue Jays Predicted Starters
New York Yankees: Enrique Hernandez, Alex Verdugo, J.D. Martinez, Xander Bogaerts, Hunter Renfroe, Christian Arroyo, Bobby Dalbec, Kevin Plawecki, Danny Santana
Toronto Blue Jays: Marcus Semien, Bo Bichette, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Teoscar Hernandez, Randal Grichuk, Rowdy Tellez, Joe Panik, Cavan Biggio, Reese McGuire
New York Yankees: A Lot on the Line
Suffice it to say that the Yankees’ performance this past couple weeks has been severely disappointing. The Yankees’ lackluster performance over the last few weeks has pushed them back to fourth in the division.
They have not had a week over .500 for three weeks ago, when they were 5-1. The goal for them this week is to attain a winning record or go 3-3 by performing well and emerging victorious over the Blue Jays.
This will not be an easy for Yankees, as the Blue Jays have been performing beautifully as of late. The Yankees will get a solid shot to get back to third place this week if they can beat Toronto.
Toronto Blue Jays: The Domination of Guerrero
The Blue Jays have been on a roll the past few games. They scored eight home runs against the Red Sox on Sunday. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has been performing on another level as of late and he may even be in consideration for the American League MVP. He is hitting 344/.450/.688 with 1.137 OPS. The way he has been playing has been a huge contribution to the Blue Jays’ improving performance.
Matchup and Betting Preview
Let’s wrap up our Yankees vs Blue Jays picks!
Even though there is a lot on the line for the Yankees, I do not think that they will be able to upstage the Blue Jays in this matchup. Their performance has been disappointing for the past few weeks and paired with the dominance of Guerrero, the Yankees may not have what it takes to beat the Blue Jays in the first game of this series.
However, there is a lot on the line for the Yankees, and maybe on a surprising turn on events, they will surprise everyone and perform well in this series.
