The Toronto Blue Jays are set to travel to Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio for an American League clash against the Cleveland Indians. The Toronto Blue Jays come into this matchup with a 2-4 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping game 2 of their 3-game series with the Baltimore Orioles, 2-1. Marcus Stroman received the starting nod for the Toronto Blue Jays, and he gave up 2 earned runs in 5.2 innings. Rowdy Tellez was the lone Blue Jay hitter to contribute any scoring as he hit a solo-HR in the bottom of the 9th inning.

The Toronto Blue Jays are set to start Aaron Sanchez (1-0, 0.00 ERA) who had a solid 1st start of the season as he went 5 scoreless innings against the Detroit Tigers. Aaron Sanchez last recorded a start against the Cleveland Indians in 2016, and he struggled as he gave up 4 earned runs in 4 innings.
The Cleveland Indians come into this matchup with a 2-3 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their series finale against the Chicago White Sox, 8-3. Corey Kluber received the starting nod for the Cleveland Indians, and he struggled as he gave up 4 earned runs in 3.1 innings. Hanley Ramirez was able to contribute 1 HR and 2 RBIs in the loss for the Indians.

The Cleveland Indians are set to start Trevor Bauer (0-0, 1.29 ERA) who had a solid 1st start of the season as he went 7 innings while only giving up 1 earned run against the Chicago White Sox.

Cleveland Indians -160

The Cleveland Indians have dominated the Toronto Blue Jays at home in recent history as they have won 7 of their last 9 games. Trevor Bauer had a stellar 1st game for the Cleveland Indians, and I expect some of the same contributions here against the Toronto Blue Jays. One of the main concerns for the Cleveland Indians during the early portion of the season has been their consistent hitting, but being at their home park, I expect some more production. Cleveland has a better overall team and should have no problem opening the series with a win. Final Score Prediction, Cleveland Indians wins, 5-3.
