Blue Jays vs. Dodgers MLB Pick – August 20th

Since they Play with with with a three-game Show in Seattle and Los Angeles, the Toronto Blue Jays are out west to Another six days.

They still have Astros and the Braves to deal with a week If they go home. Since the Jays are looking for purposeful wins thats okay, however.
However, playing teams might help to develop the men on the roster, that can be this year is all about. Having to compete against contenders can help later on from the development procedure. The Mariners dont rely, but Astros, Braves, and the Dodgers are contenders.
Tonight will be a measuring rod for the Blue Jays hitters and also Sean Reid-Foley. The Dodgers have a strike offense who might provide Reid-Foley a night at the office. In any case, Reid-Foley has been pitching well at the limited opportunities he has received in 2019. This is going to be his seventh start of the year.
Allowing Reid-Foley to find experience, as opposed to turning into Edwin Jackson who is nothing more than a rotation filler, was the move by the Blue Jays. Hes begun against the Yankees after and managed them terrifically. Obtaining an identical outing against the Dodgers would be another spot because of his season.
He is up against a few of the greatest pitchers in the major leagues in the previous decade, so hes going to need it to give a opportunity to the Jays. Clayton Kershaw is advised to make his 22nd start of the season tonight. The Dodgers actually need him to find hot when it matters most in October, although he has not missed a beat in 2019.

For all of the criticism that the Blue Jays front office have gottenthey appear to be on a timeline for your future. So long as their talent develops the Blue Jays are going to be from the AL East. Bo Bichette and Vlad. Jr are going to unite to do a lot of harm, which theyve already started to perform collectively because rookies. Reid-Foley expects to make an impact in the future also.
Early on in his career, hes been on the path that is ideal and doing well in Toronto. Reid-Foley enters Dodger Stadium with an ERA of 3.00 and 1.57 WHIP. In his past three outings, hes posted a 3.65 ERA and 1.78 WHIP. Thus he is going to need to work on keeping runners off the bases.
He has not been in a position to avoid walks and it is eventually going to catch up to him. Note that he has yielded 13 walks in his past four matches. It is not sustainable, although It is possible to get away for just a little while with it. Finally long balls runs and will get hit add up fast when that happens with lots of runners on base. The Dodgers are 3rd in the majors with 1.72 home runs hit per game. Their OBP is 4th with a .341, so for a guy who has had difficulties with averting conflicts, this match can be interesting to get him.
The Blue Jays have not seen playing in the American League, when obtaining the chance but theyve struggled. Theyre hitting on just .172 in 29 at-bats. Kershaw wont have to worry about Vlad Jr. inside this contest after that he suffered a knee injury against the Mariners. Kershaw has been on fire with a 1.35 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in his last three outings.
Hes also been at his best at home, where hes submitted a 2.26 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. Be aware that Kershaw is a perfect 8-0 at home. I dont expect the Jays to have the ability to get in this matchup to Kershaw. The Jays might be kept by reid-Foley in this one for just a small while, but search to start up things and pull away.
