New York Yankees vs Toronto Blue Jays Prediction 

New York was able to get a blowout win on Friday night, but they have not played very well over the last few weeks. The Yankees will look to build on that big win with another solid performance here, as they are 29-17 on the road. Toronto is at the bottom of the AL East right now and while their pitching staff has been a disaster, their offense has been fine. The Yankees are starting Cortes, who has been shaky in recent outings, while Bassitt has been very good for the Jays lately. I know Bassitt has pitched well, but I think the Yankees are going to build on Friday’s great effort. My New York Yankees vs Toronto Blue Jays prediction is for the Yankees to win.
