Blue Jays Preview
The Toronto Blue Jays are 1-2 this season after they lost two out of their three games against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Toronto pitching staff has a 6.84 ERA, a 2.04 WHIP, and a .373 opponent batting average this year. The Blue Jays offense has scored 15 runs with a .299 batting average and a .381 on base percentage. Matt Chapman is batting .500 with 0 home runs and two RBI’s for the Jays. The projected starting pitcher for Toronto is Jose Berrios, who was 12-7 with a 5.23 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP last year.
The Kansas City Royals are 0-3 this season after they were swept by the Minnesota Twins in their first series. The Kansas City pitching staff has a 3.33 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, and a .264 opponent batting average. The Royals offense has scored four runs with a .133 batting average and a .250 on base percentage this year. Salvador Perez is batting .364 with one walk and one strike out for the Royals. The projected starting pitcher for Kansas City is Brady Singer, who was 10-5 with a 3.23 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP last year.
Toronto is 6-0 in their last 6 Monday games and 20-9 in their last 20 road games. The over is 5-1 in Toronto’s last 6 games following a loss. Kansas City is 6-2 in their last 8 Monday games and 1-4 in their last 5 home games. The under is 4-1-1 in Kansas City’s last 6 game one’s of a series. The under is 10-3 in these two teams last 13 head to head meetings.
Kansas City comes into this game looking for their first win of the season and was shut out in two of their last three games. Toronto is 1-2, but they have shown much more life than the Royals have. The Blue Jays are starting Jose Berrios, who had a very rough 2022, while Brady Singer had a solid year for the Royals. I like the Royals at home in this one, despite their offensive struggles.
