Blue Jays Stroman Gets the Nod Against the Royals

Toronto Blue Jays

Blue Jays Try to Catch Royals for AL Wildcard Spot

The last home stand for the 2017 Toronto Blue Jays (70-80, –20.18 betting units) begins this Tuesday when the Kansas City Royals (73-76, +2.56 units) play Game 1 of a three-game set at Rogers Centre. First pitch is at 7:07 p.m. Eastern on Sportsnet.

Marcus Stroman (3.81 FIP) expects to make his 31st start of the year for Toronto. He’s enjoyed another solid season for the Jays, but they’re still –1.60 units in the hole on a team record of 17-13, despite giving him 5.20 runs of support per game while allowing just 3.80 runs. Stroman threw six shutout innings in his last start against the Baltimore Orioles; the Jays lost 2-1 as –132 home faves.

The Royals have yet to officially announced a projected starter at press time. If Ian Kennedy is not ready, then rookie northpaw Sam Gaviglio (5.82 FIP) is in line to make his third appearance. He came over from the Seattle Mariners on the waiver wire. Gaviglio allowed just three earned runs in 10 combined innings during his first two K.C. starts after struggling with the Mariners.

Kennedy was skipped in the rotation last week because of shoulder fatigue and tightness. If he is over that problem, he is expected to start. Kennedy is 0-0 with a 2.08 ERA in two career starts against Toronto.

Catcher Salvador Perez (.782 OPS) will likely join him after missing three games with an intercostal strain.
