Detroit Tigers vs. Toronto Blue Jays Prediction: How Will Elvin Rodriguez fare against Blue Jays?

The Toronto Blue Jays will head out on the road to take on the Detroit Tigers for a weekend series.

In the first game of the series, it'll be Elvin Rodriguez on the mound for the Tigers. In his last game against the Yankees, he was tipping pitches with runners on base and allowed 10 runs in his short outing.

What does that mean for the Blue Jays in tonight's game? Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Friday's game between the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays.

Detroit Tigers vs. Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

The Detroit Tigers are just 23-33 on the season and falling down in the American League standings fast. The Tigers will send out Elvin Rodriguez, who has had a 5.20 xFIP in the last 30 days.

He's also lacking strikeouts with just 20.3% of strikeouts in the last 30 days and has walked 8.5% of batters.

Lefties have a wOBA of .443 with an ISO of .375 while righties have a wOBA of .395 with an ISO of .300. Rodriguez just hasn't looked very good to start the year, although he's shown glimpses of potential.

The Blue Jays have an ISO of .177 with a wOBA of .338 against righties in the last 30 days. The bottom half of the order has surprised, hitting a very high line drive rate against righties in that same time frame.

On the other hand, Jose Berris will take the hill for the Blue Jays. While he's been inconsistent throughout the season, his last 30 days have been above-average. Berrios has had a 4.14 xFIP in the last 30 days with 25.7% of strikeouts and 5.3% of walks.

The Tigers aren't a real threat offensively, with a .128 ISO and wOBA of .283 in the last 30 days with their projected lineup. What's even more baffling is how the Tigers have worked just 4.5% of walks with their projected lineup against righties. There's no patience with this team apparently.

Therefore, I like the Blue Jays to make easy work of the Tigers in tonight's game. Once Rodriguez puts runners on base, he will eventually fold. Even if he isn't tipping pitches, it'll still be a mental challenge and then his command could fall apart. Back the Blue Jays on the runline.
