I am launching my MLB coverage for the season now that NBA is officially over and the NHL is wrapping up in a few days. My MLB daily picks will remain free for the summer until football kicks off again for the season. At that point, you will once again need to be subscribed to my Newsletter to get my pick delivered to your inbox daily by 1 pm.
MLB: Blue Jays [-124] (Berrios) @ White Sox (Lynn) $
The Blue Jays are coming off a huge come-from-behind win over the Yankees last night busting the Yankee’s nine-game win streak.
Toronto trailed that game 8-3 in the sixth inning before getting a grand slam from Lourdes Gurriel followed by a three-run shot from Teoscar Hernandez to take a 10-8 lead. Romano got the final 5 outs for the Jays to cap a highly emotional win. This is precisely the type of win I look for when looking to back a team in their next game. They are full of confidence and they should continue that emotion heading into the three-game set in Chicago.
Jose Berrios has been solid of late and I am looking for another quality start from him tonight. Lance Lynn is coming off his season debut last week after a knee injury delayed the start of his season. He allowed 10 hits in four innings in that outing so not a good start to the season for the 35-year-old starter. Let’s see if the big Blue Jay bats can get to him early.
