MLB : Can Toronto Get Back on Track in New York?

It's been a rough week for the Toronto Blue Jays (77-60, –1.80 betting units). They've lost four of their last six, including Monday's series opener against the resurgent New York Yankees (71-65, +1.17 units). The finale of this three-game set takes place Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, starting at 7:05 PM ET on Sportsnet.

Marcus Stroman (3.72 FIP) will try to staunch the bleeding for Toronto. He's been strong on the mound the past couple of months, providing seven quality starts in his last 11 appearances, but the Jays are just 5-6 during this stretch. The good news: Current Yankees have a tiny .503 OPS against Stroman in his brief career. The bad news: Wednesday will be the first time he's faced New York's hot rookie catcher, Gary Sanchez (1.182 OPS).

The Yankees will give second-year righty Luis Severino (4.64 FIP) another crack at the starting rotation on Wednesday. He's been limited mostly to bullpen work since going on the DL in May and spending nearly two months in the minors. New York has lost all nine of Severino's starts this year for a deficit of 10.02 units; the Jays have pounded him for a combined .955 OPS over 45 at-bats.

MLB Odds: Blue Jays, Yankees Rumble in the Bronx
The Toronto Blue Jays (77-60, –1.80 betting units) have lost four of their last six games, but they can get back on track Wednesday when they visit the New York Yankees (71-65, +1.17 units) in the finale of a three-game series. First pitch is at 7:05 PM ET on Sportsnet.

Marcus Stroman (3.72 FIP) gets the starting nod for Toronto against Luis Severino (4.64 FIP), who's had a very disappointing sophomore campaign; the Yankees have dropped all nine of his starts this season for a loss of 10.02 units, and Severino has twice been demoted to the bullpen.
