Toronto has tied or won four of their last five series. It appeared as though the Blue Jays were beginning to turn their season around. They lost the final two games against a beatable Tigers team. Then they turned around and lost the first of two against the equally lowly New York Mets.
They’ll be in tough fight against the Yankees. New York has dominated Toronto of late. They will send second-year starter Sam Gaviglio to the mound to face New York.
The Yankees will counter with Sonny Gray. He has struggled to a 5.44 ERA through 16 starts this season. Gray has walked 36 batters in 82 1/3 innings over those 16 starts. That puts him on pace to have the worst walk stats in a season of his career.
Despite Gray’s inconsistency, the Yankees’ offense will no doubt be in full swing. Don’t miss Friday’s offensive output. Game time is 7:07 PM ET.
