The Toronto Blue Jays are out west for Another six days, as they play with a three-game series in Seattle and Los Angeles.
They still have Astros and the Braves to take care of If they head home a week. That is okay, however, because the Jays aren’t exactly currently looking for wins.
But, teams that are playing will help to create the younger men on this roster, which will be all this year. Having to compete against contenders will help later on in the evolution procedure. Astros, Braves, and also the Dodgers are all contenders, although the Mariners do not count.
Tonight will be a solid measuring stick for the Blue Jays’ hitters and also Sean Reid-Foley. The Dodgers possess a strike offense who may provide a night at the workplace to Reid-Foley. In any event, Reid-Foley has been pitching in the chances he’s obtained in 2019. This is going to be his seventh start of the year.
Allowing Reid-Foley to get expertise, as opposed to turning had been the wiser move by the Blue Jays. Hehandled them and’s begun against the Yankees previously. Getting a devotion against the Dodgers would be another bright spot because of his season.
He is up against one of the best pitchers in the major leagues from the previous decade, so he’s going to want it to provide the Jays a chance. Clayton Kershaw is advised to make his start of the year tonight. He has not missed a beat at 2019, but the Dodgers need him to get hot when it matters most in October. Head below for our complimentary Blue Jays vs. Dodgers select.

For all of the criticism that the Blue Jays’ front office have become , they appear to be about a great timeline for the future. Provided that their young talent develops correctly, the Blue Jays are going to become a rival in the AL East. Bo Bichette and Vlad. Jr are likely to combine to perform a lot of damage, which they have already begun to perform because rookies. Reid-Foley hopes to create an impact in the future.
Early on in his career, he’s been on the course and performing well in Toronto. Reid-Foley enters Dodger Stadium having the ERA of 3.00 and also 1.57 WHIP. In his past three outings, he has submitted a 3.65 ERA and also 1.78 WHIP. Thus he is going to need to work on keeping runners off the bases.
He hasn’t been able to prevent walks at all and it’s eventually going to catch up to him. Be aware he has given 13 walks in just his past four matches. It’s possible to get away with it for a little while, but it’s not sustainable. Finally long balls are going to get hit and runs when that happens with lots of runners on base, add up quickly. The Dodgers are 3rd in the majors with 1.72 home runs hit a game. Additionally, their OBP is 4th with a .341, so to get a guy who has had difficulties this game may be interesting to get him.
The Blue Jays haven’t seen playing in the American League, when getting the chance but they have struggled. They’re hitting on just .172 in 29 at-bats. Kershaw will not have to be worried about Vlad Jr. inside this competition after that he suffered a knee injury against the Mariners. Kershaw has been on fire with a 1.35 ERA and also 0.90 WHIP in his last three outings.
He’s been in his best at home, where he has posted a 2.26 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. Be aware that Kershaw is a perfect 8-0 in the home. I really don’t expect the Jays to have the ability to get inside this matchup to Kershaw. The Jays might be kept by reid-Foley in this one for just a little while, however, look for the Dodgers to open up things and pull away.
