Blue Jays, Tigers Among Best Bets In AL For Saturday’s Slate

Posted by on 6/19/2015 8:26:09 PM

For all of the surprise that the American League East has packed through the first couple of months of the MLB season perhaps the biggest is the fact that the Tampa Bay Rays are right there challenging for top spot once again. It seems like regardless of what happens to them as well as the other teams in the division the Rays somehow always manage to figure in to the mix and that is certainly the case again this year as we enter the final stretch of June. Tampa Bay is visiting the Cleveland Indians this weekend and they will be in tough to stay hot including in particular on Saturday. Here is a look at the best bets on the board in games featuring AL East teams for Saturday beginning with an intriguing division showdown.

Baltimore Orioles @ Toronto Blue Jays

Saturday, 1:07 PM ET

With the offense absolutely on fire and the bullpen more than holding its own of late the Blue Jays are suddenly looking like a true contender in the AL East where they are right behind Tampa Bay for top spot. Mark Buehrle has been outstanding over his last three starts giving up just three earned runs over 22 innings pitching including a shutout win over the Washington Nationals. Buehrle has held the Orioles to four earned runs in 11 combined innings of work this season and it won’t shock anybody if he improves to 3-0 against them this season when he gets the start Saturday opposite Kevin Gausman, who will come off the 15-day DL.

Pick: Toronto

Tampa Bay Rays @ Cleveland Indians

Saturday, 7:10 PM ET

Erasmo Ramirez’s 4.45 ERA doesn’t inspire confidence but he has won four straight starts and six of his last seven to improve to 6-2 on the year and lower his ERA from a terrible 8.38 mark before that. Tampa Bay has won a lot of close games this season and as long as Ramirez doesn’t get shelled they should have a chance to win most of his starts. Pitching opposite Corey Kluber is usually not a good matchup but he has lost three straight starts despite allowing more than two earned runs only once over that span. The Indians haven’t given Kluber very much run support but he can only lose so many games in a row when giving up just two earned runs and if he keeps the Tampa Bay offense in check in this game he should be able to get back on track.

Pick: Cleveland

Detroit Tigers @ New York Yankees

Saturday, 7:15 PM ET

Anibal Sanchez struggled earlier in the year but he has gone consecutive starts without allowing a run with 16.2 straight scoreless innings over which he has struck out 14. The Tigers just got Victor Martinez and Justin Verlander back and they need their veteran players to continue to perform at a high level if they are going to beat out the Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins for top spot in the AL Central. The Yankees haven’t confirmed their starter for Saturday but they have really overachieved to this point in the year and if Sanchez pitches the way he did in his last two starts it might not matter who New York sends to the mound.

Pick: Detroit
