Fenway Has Been Friendly To The Blue Jays

A four-game set at Fenway Park might be exactly what the Toronto Blue Jays need to claw back toward .500, as the club is 6-2 SU in its past eight games in Boston. That being said, the Jays have not traveled to Beantown since the end of last season and are just 1-5 against the BoSox so far this year.

SHARK BITES
  • The Blue Jays are 6-15 SU in their last 21 games against left-handed starters.
  • Xander Bogaerts is 10-for-20 in his career against Marcus Stroman.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of the Red Sox' last 10 games at home.

The Jays will send a red-hot Marcus Stroman to the bump for the series opener Monday. Since the worst performance of his season against Texas on June 22, Stroman has given up just three earned runs with 17 strikeouts to six walks in three outings. Toronto’s ace has struggled against the Red Sox in his career with a 5.07 ERA in eight starts against the AL East rivals.

Eduardo Rodriguez will be activated from the DL and will make his first start since June 1 for the Red Sox in this one. The lefty should provide a major boost to the Red Sox rotation, as Rodriguez has allowed three or fewer earned runs in eight of his 10 starts this year.
