Yanks’ Tanaka has had Blue Jays’ Number

New York Yankees Toronto Blue Jays MLB

Don’t try telling Masahiro Tanaka about the potent offense the Toronto Blue Jays feature because he’s not buying any of it. The righty has been dominant versus the Jays during his young career and is slated to get the ball when the New York Yankees open a three-game set north of the border Tuesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • Josh Donaldson has gone 1 for 13 in his career versus Tanaka.
  • The visiting team is 1-3 SU in the last four games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the last four meetings between these two teams.

At online book Bovada, Tanaka and the Yanks are presently even money while the Jays are -120. The total has been tabbed at 8.5 with OVER at -110 and UNDER presently -120.

In seven career starts versus the Jays, Tanaka has posted a record of 5-2 and sports a 2.23 ERA and 0.9 WHIP over 44 1/3 innings of work. Four of those starts came last season where he posted a 2-2 record, 2.42 ERA and 0.85 WHIP.

The 27-year-old went 5 2/3 innings in his first start of the season versus the Houston Astros back on April 5. He allowed a pair of runs and fanned four batters in a no-decision.

Countering for the Jays is expected to be Aaron Sanchez. The 23-year-old went seven strong innings while allowing five hits and one earned run in a 3-2 defeat to the Tampa Bay Rays in his first start. He struck out eight hitters and didn’t walk anyone in the no-decision.

The Jays performed very well down the stretch versus the Yankees last season, winning six of the final eight meetings between the two teams.
