All the way from Toronto, Canada, the Blue Jays will be dropping by the concrete jungle that is New York City for a game against the Yankees. At 7:05 AM (PST) this Tuesday, the two teams are going head-to-head hoping to lengthen their winning streaks. Will the Yankees continue to conquer following the high of beating the Boston Red Sox, or will the Blue Jays prove that they won’t stop with the Texas Rangers? This is how we see things unfolding at the Yankee Stadium this April 12, 2022.  


A three-game series between the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays begins this 12th. For the Yankees, right-hand player Gerrit Cole is expected to make his third start of the season. In 14 starts in 2020-21, he had an 8-3 with a 2.64 ERA, and 0.95 WHIP across 85 1/3 innings. On April 1, Cole played against the Blue Jays and gave up two earned runs in 5 1/3 innings pitched; Toronto batters had a .533 OPS against him in 96 plate appearances. 


Alternatively for the Blue Jays, Toronto is expected to start with left-hand player Robbie Ray. Last season, he pitched for the Blue Jays and the Arizona Diamondbacks, going 2-5 with a 6.62 ERA, and 1.90 WHIP across 51 2/3 innings. After being sidelined due to a bruised left elbow, Ray is now making his regular-season comeback.  


As Yankees’ Cole has a strong track record against the Blue Jays, their batters specifically, and with the most anticipated player on the other team just fresh off the injured list, they have the advantage. With Ray and his history of sluggish starts in conjunction with the expected rustiness of not playing for a while, the Blue Jays are in some trouble. Not to mention, Ray suffers from a strength of New York: right-handed batters. Safe to say, we’re siding with the Yankees yet again. What can we do? They’re just that good! We’re calling it now! The game ends in favor of the Yankees, 5-3.  


7:05 AM (PST), Tuesday, April 12, 2022. Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY.
