Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Tampa Bay Rays
The Tampa Bay Rays were one of the most prolific offenses in the league last season. However, things have changed since then.
The team's offense has struggled through much of the season due to various factors. The Rays are currently 25th in the league in terms of runs scored. They also recorded a .298 on-base percentage. The return of Wander Franco from the IL should help boost the team's batting order.
The team's pitching has been one of the most consistent factors throughout the season. Through 14 games, the Tampa Bay has allowed just three runs and has a team ERA of 3.23.
One of the reasons why the team is currently in the top five in the league in this category is due to the consistent performance of veteran pitcher Corey Kluber. In his last start, Kluber threw 5.1 innings of two-run ball against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He has now allowed opponents to score just three runs in eight straight starts.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays are currently on a crucial eight-game home stand, which features a series against the rival Tampa Bay and Boston Red Sox. Both of these teams are in very similar positions in the AL East. With a chance to take some separation from the division's other contenders, the Blue Jays can make a serious push toward New York.
Toronto is currently one of the most dangerous offensive teams. The team is currently averaging around 4.75 runs per game and are led by Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who has 18 home runs and 46 RBIs. The rest of the team's batting order is also very balanced and has plenty of power options.
The Jays' pitching staff is currently 20th in the league with a 4.06 ERA. One of the reasons why this has been a difficult year for the team's rotation is due to the consistent inconsistency of Jose Berrios. He entered the weekend with a 5-4 record and a bloated 5.84 ERA. Berrios' last start was dreadful, as he allowed eight runs in just 2.2 innings against Milwaukee.
