After dropping Tuesday’s series opener, the Toronto Blue Jays (87-70) can move closer to securing a playoff spot with a win over the New York Yankees (80-77) on Wednesday. First pitch from Rogers Centre is set for 7:07 p.m. ET, and the game will air on Amazon Prime Video in the Yankees market and on Sportsnet in the Blue Jays market. Cy Young front-runner Gerrit Cole (14-4, 2.75 ERA) takes the mound for the Yankees, while Jose Berrios (11-11, 3.58) gets the ball for the Blue Jays.
The Yankees are relegated to playing spoiler in the season’s final week, though they were able to do that effectively in a dramatic win on Tuesday night. Austin Wells’ ninth-inning homer lifted New York to a win, and the newest crop of Baby Bombers — Wells, Everson Pereira, Oswald Peraza, the injured Jasson Dominguez — have given the team some reasons for optimism heading into 2024, as has Carlos Rodon’s recent surge.
The Jays dropped a frustrating game on Tuesday, but they remain in good shape in the AL Wild Card chase, with a 1.5-game lead on the second spot and their two closest competitors, the Astros and Mariners, busy beating each other up in Seattle. Toronto has still won seven of 10, with Kevin Gausman and Jose Berrios leading the rotation and Bo Bichette, Matt Chapman and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. getting healthy and hot at the right time.
Toronto enters as -115 moneyline favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook, with New York at -105. The run total is set at 7.
