Yankees, Blue Jays The Best Bets For Friday Night’s AL East Action

Posted by on 6/11/2015 9:07:45 PM

When the New York Yankees entered the month of June with the worst record for an American League East leader that late in the season in the division’s history there was plenty of talk about how much that particular group of teams had regressed over the past decade of baseball. Since then the Yankees have gone on to win eight of 10 to improve to 33-26, the Tampa Bay Rays have won seven of 10 to improve to 32-28 and the Toronto Blue Jays have only gained 1.5 games on New York despite winning eight straight games. The AL East has been nothing else if not unpredictable so far but with a pair of divisional series on the slate for this weekend we feel we have enough insight to break down the best bets for games featuring AL East teams.

New York Yankees @ Baltimore Orioles

Friday, 7:05 PM ET

The Yankees have been incredibly inconsistent this season but they have heated up again of late and they own a 16-13 record against AL East teams including taking three of four from Baltimore in their last series. Now they will turn to Michael Pineda to keep their hot streak going and while he is 2-0 against the Orioles this season and while he was roughed up in his first meeting against them he gave up just one earned over seven innings with a ridiculous 16 strikeouts in his last start against them. The Yankees’ offense likely won’t have to give Pineda a ton of run support to get the win and they should be able to get to Ubaldo Jimenez.

Pick: Yankees

Toronto Blue Jays @ Boston Red Sox

Friday, 7:10 PM ET

Toronto seems to have finally turned a corner with the offense putting up some elite numbers while the pitching staff has finally found a rhythm. That includes Friday’s starter Drew Hutchison, who is coming off an excellent performance in a 7-2 win over the Minnesota Twins in his last start and who has already led the Blue Jays to a 2-0 record against Boston this season. Hutchison held the Red Sox to one run on seven hits over five innings with six strikeouts in his last start against them and if the Toronto bats can stay hot against Joe Kelly and his 5.40 ERA then the Blue Jays should be able to stay hot at Fenway Park.

Pick: Blue Jays

Chicago White Sox @ Tampa Bay Rays

Friday, 7:10 PM ET

With Toronto streaking and the Yankees heating up it’s easy to overlook what Tampa Bay has been able to do over the past two weeks but they are right there behind New York for the division lead and while they still haven’t announced Friday’s starter it might not matter with John Danks set to start for Chicago. Danks has given up five earned runs or more in three of his last four starts and with the White Sox bats struggling it might not matter who gets the nod for Tampa Bay.

Pick: Rays
