By the Numbers - 8/12
- Vegas Line: TOR -105, 9.5
- Trevor Williams vs. Chris Rowley
Williams: Williams (5 – 4, 4.17 ERA) pitched well in his last start (zero earned runs on one hit through 7.0 innings against Detroit). Control continues to be a bit of an issue, as he has walked at least two batters in each of his last six starts. Williams (16.8% strikeout rate) is an underdog on the road against Toronto (20.6% strikeout rate), so I’ll keep looking for more attractive option at starting pitcher.
Blue Jays Bats: Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista
