On Tuesday, we travel to Toronto to find value in a NRFI between two American League teams: the Toronto Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Blue Jays will send out their ace in Alek Manoah. Coming into today, Manoah is 22-5 to the NRFI. The 24-year-old has been excellent when facing batters the first time through the order. In 225 at-bats, he’s only allowed 41 hits, which is suitable for a .182 average.

Here’s how Manoah has done in the past against some of these Rays hitters:

  • Randy Arozarena: 1-for-6
  • Yandy Diaz: 0-for-6
  • Ji-Man Choi: 1-for-10
  • Manuel Margot: 0-for-5

Manoah has dominated these past matchups, holding the Rays’ projected top of the order to a collective 2-for-28.

The Rays will counter with lefty Jeffrey Springs. Coming into today, Springs is 15-5 to the NRFI, with a 7-4 road NRFI record. Springs has been excellent, and in his last 15 days (across 8.2 innings), he’s only allowed five hits, posting a terrific 0.00 ERA.

Here’s how Springs has done in the past against some of these Blue Jays hitters:

  • Bo Bichette: 2-for-6
  • Teoscar Hernandez: 0-for-6
  • Vlad Guerrero Jr.: 1-for-6
  • Matt Chapman: 1-for-10
  • George Springer: 0-for-3

It should be noted that lead-off hitter Springer has been struggling at the plate in the last week, going just 4-for-25 (well under .200).

The Rays are coming into today riding a hot 7-3 NRFI streak. The Blue Jays are coming in slightly hotter with a 8-2 NRFI streak.

Bet on these trends to continue in game one of the doubleheader.

As always, six outs to glory!
