Blue Jays vs. Indians Free Pick July 22, 2017 – Scott Rickenbach
Blue Jays vs. Indians Free Pick July 22, 2017
By Scott Rickenbach
The Blue Jays Marcus Stroman has been on a fantastic run. The Toronto right-hander has given up a total of only 3 earned runs in his last 4 starts. Keep in mind, on the season, Stroman has allowed 2 earned runs or less in 14 of his 19 starts!
Danny Salazar gets the start for the Indians here. The right-hander has been out since late May but the fireballer is ready to go here. This guy piles up the strikeouts. Salazar has fanned 73 in 52 and 1/3 innings this season. Also, the right-hander is now healthy again and, keep in mind, he had struck out 69 in his first 47 innings this season!
The Blue Jays are 10-3 to the under in Saturday games this season and Toronto had averaged just 3 runs per game in their 5 games prior to Thursday’s upset win at Boston.
Stroman has a 2.13 ERA in 4 career starts against the Indians and all 4 stayed under the total. Look for that under mark to reach a perfect 5-0 with another pitchers duel in this one Saturday.
Cleveland entered Friday’s action having gone 35-22 to the under in night games and 28-18 to the under in games against teams with a losing record this season.
Also the under is 11-5 in Indians Saturday games this year. Look for more of the same this Saturday for both clubs!
Free Pick on UNDER the total in Cleveland. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
