    Yankees @ Blue Jays April 12-14

    The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays meet Monday in MLB action from Dunedin Stadium.

    New York is coming off a weekend series versus the Rays. After falling in the first two games, on Sunday the Yankees avoided the sweep with a 10-inning win. As for the Blue Jays, they played the Angels over the weekend. Toronto went 1-2 in the first three games, then on Sunday had a rainout postponement.

    New York has had lots of trouble with the Rays over the past couple of seasons, and that trend continued this weekend with losses 10-5 and 4-0 in the first pair. In the Sunday game, New York snapped a three-game losing streak with an 8-4 victory. New Yankee Rougned Odor posted a game-winning hit in the 10th in that one.

    For the Monday starting role, the Yankees are sending out Gerrit Cole. In two starts this year, Cole has notched a 1.46 ERA over 12.1 innings with nine hits, two earned, one homer, two walks and 21 strikeouts. Cole is 3-0 with a 2.97 ERA in five starts versus the Jays.

    Over on the Toronto side, they dropped their first pair versus the Angels 7-5 and 7-1 before getting a big win Saturday 15-1. The Sunday game was rained out, so we’ll get a makeup of that one as part of a split doubleheader in August at Angel Stadium.

    For the starter job on Monday, the Blue Jays are going with Robbie Ray. Spring training was great for Ray; he went 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA and 18 strikeouts. He’s coming off the IL after falling downstairs and hurting his elbow.

    The Yankees are 43-21 in their last 64 Monday games and 4-1 in their last five versus a team with a winning record. New York is 2-6 in their last eight road games versus a team with a losing record and the over is 4-1 in their last five Monday games.

    Meanwhile, the Jays are 7-1 in their last eight Monday games and 4-1 in their last five in game one of a series. The over is 13-5-1 in Toronto’s last 19 Monday games and they’re 18-37 in their last 55 games with the total set at 11.0 or higher.

    Gerrit Cole
    RHP
    1-0, 1.46 ERA, 21 SO
    Cole's 21 strikeouts are tied with Al Downing (1964) for the most by any Yankee through his first two starts of a season. Cole is 3-0 with a 2.97 ERA in five starts vs. Toronto, including an Opening Day no-decision.

    Robbie Ray
    LHP
    0-0, -.-- ERA, 0 SO
    Ray posted great results in four Spring Training starts (2-0, 1.98 ERA, 18 strikeouts), but he landed on the IL after falling down stairs and bruising his left elbow. He missed two turns in the rotation, but now he's ready to go.

    Tue, Apr 13 • 7:07 PM EDT

    Jameson Taillon
    RHP
    0-0, 3.86 ERA, 7 SO
    Taillon is coming off his first start since May 1, 2019, limiting the Orioles to two solo homers among three hits over 4 2/3 innings. Taillon has revamped his arsenal, scrapping his two-seamer in favor of elevated four-seam fastballs.

    Hyun Jin Ryu
    LHP
    0-1, 2.92 ERA, 12 SO
    Pitching on five days' rest, Ryu looks to continue his assertion as Toronto's ace. He pitched seven strong innings last time out vs. Texas on Wednesday, fanning seven and allowing two runs, but he's still looking for his first win of the season

    Wed, Apr 14 • 1:07 PM EDT

    Corey Kluber
    RHP
    0-1, 5.68 ERA, 8 SO
    Kluber lasted only 2 1/3 innings in his last start, smacked for five runs (three earned) by the Rays. He faced the Blue Jays on April 3 at Yankee Stadium, allowing two runs (one earned) over four innings.

    Ross Stripling
    RHP
    0-1, 7.56 ERA, 10 SO
    Stripling forged through five innings in his last start on Thursday en route to a no-decision, but he ran into a Mike-Trout-sized buzzsaw and still owns an ERA above 7.00. He is 0-3 lifetime against the Yankees (four appearances, one start).

    I hoping one of Taillon or Kluber putz together a dominant start so they can start to prove all the haters wrong.
    Taillons probably a safer bet but if Kluber all of a sudden finds his command he's capable of a dominant outings

    I think its only a matter of time for both of these guys provided that they can stay healthy. They are still building up. Almost every pitcher has a rough outing or two this time of year unless they are a superfreak like Cole.

    I thought kluber was going to do well in his last two starts and still hope he does well . So I hope you aren’t calling me a hater . As for tailon I said he did good I just wasn’t impressed so again I am no hater . As for them being dominant , I know they will both very good starts eventually . Even the worst pitchers put up great numbers every once in awhile , not that I think either are bad pitchers cause I don’t . And while I do believe they will do well , it might be while before either one goes past 6 innings since like you said they are building arm strength and tailon is on an innings limit .

    Makes perfect sense to move Stanton to the #2 position, his AB's have been so competitive lately... Then the drop Judge to 3rd... Boone is the smartest manager every because the anals say so

    You know I Am almost done with baseball . Micheal Kay reported that the reason why hicks isn’t playing is because he is having issues with what’s happening in Minnesota . What a piece of garbage , he is making 10 mill per year and is putting politics ahead of doing what he is paid to do . He should just retire and focus on politics then
