Featured game | Toronto Blue Jays vs. Kansas City Royals

Why you should support the Royals

Kansas City’s offensive projection is strong heading into Sunday’s game. The Royals lead the American League in triples this season in hitting, stolen bases and batting average. Kansas City is also putting the ball in play at less than a 21 percent hitting percentage, and the Royals are facing a pitching battle.

Toronto right-hander Jose Berrios has a 5.38 ERA this season and a 7.61 ERA over his last five starts. Berrios has allowed more home runs than any AL player this season, giving up 1.8 home runs per nine innings, and he has a WHIP of 1.364 in 2022. Toronto also has a poor hitting streak, with the Blue Jays ranking in AL’s last three in wins over relievers and giving up 1.2 home runs per nine innings.

Why you should support the Blue Jays

Toronto’s offense is deep and powerful. Every regular in the Blue Jays lineup enters Sunday with an OPS comfortably above the .700 mark, including six players with double-digit home runs in the first half of the season. The Blue Jays lead the American League in batting average, with the top three in on-base percentage, slugging percentage, OPS and total bases. Toronto also ranks at the top of the AL in runs scored, hits, home runs and doubles, with the Blue Jays landing above the league average in both walks and strikeouts.

Reigning 2021 All-Star MVP Vladimir Guerrero Jr. headlines a group of deserving All-Star selections for Toronto this season, and the Blue Jays could also face a vulnerable starting lineup from Kansas City. Kris Bubic has a 6.63 ERA this season and opponents are producing an .884 OPS against him in 2022.
