*3 Star Play on Toronto* The Toronto Blue Jays start Taijuan Walker in this one. Walker has been trending in the right direction of late. His exit velocity and hard hit rate on batted balls allowed is easily the best of his career thus far this season. He is now pitching for a contender and that has him excited about the rest of the year.
The Boston Red Sox are already talking about next year. Who can blame them? This is a short season and the Red Sox have dug too deep of a hole to contend in any way. Martin Perez starts in this one and he has had a blister issue of late. Even when he is completely healthy, Perez isn't very good. All of his advanced metrics are worse this year than last year. His velocity and his spin rates are down a lot and that is a troubling sign for him.
The Blue Jays have a good young lineup, and they also have a very underrated bullpen. Toronto ranks 4th in the majors in bullpen ERA. The Boston bullpen is a bottom ten bullpen in the majors.
This is a fair price for a team with plenty to play for and the better starter and far better bullpen.
