Royals vs. Blue Jays Line Movement

Kansas City Royals vs. Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

The Toronto Blue Jays are always stacked against lefties. Tonight, the Royals will send out Daniel Lynch, a lefty, who has a 6.31 xFIP in the last 30 days.

Lynch is 2-4 with a 4.81 ERA and has struck out just 17.1% of batters in the last 30 days along with walking 13.5% of batters in that same time frame. He's getting just 38.2% of ground balls and allowing 26.3% of line drives in those 30 days. Righties currently have a .360 wOBA against Lynch.

The Blue Jays aren't hitting lefties for power in the last 30 days but have struck out just 14.1% of the time against lefties using the projected lineup. The same lineup is walking 13% of the time in the last 30 days. The Blue Jays will get on base and create havoc on the base paths against Lynch.

On the other hand, Ross Stripling will get the call for the Blue Jays. He's 1-1 with a 4.22 ERA but has been better analytically in the last 30 days. Stripling has a 3.50 xFIP with 24.1% strikeouts and 6.9% walks in the last 30 days. He's also inducing 57.1% of ground balls while allowing just 14.3% of line drives.

The Royals have been an average offense with just Bobby Witt Jr. hitting at an elevated rate in the last 30 days against righties. Only Witt Jr. has a higher wOBA of .331 or higher in the last 30 days against righties.

Therefore, I like the Blue Jays every which way you look at this game, But I also know Stripling has had his fair share of bad performances too. So I'll go with the Blue Jays Over 2.5 in the first five innings. I like Toronto to dominate Lynch with eight righties in the lineup.
