Toronto Blue Jays vs Chicago White Sox Date and Time: Friday, August 27,2021 3:07 am Venue: Rogers Centre Prediction: Toronto Blue Jays Bookmaker: 1xbet
This should come into play in this matchup with the Blue Jays, who have the second-lowest strikeout percentage in all of baseball. Cease should be able to negate that advantage, at least partially. Michael Kopech has not done as well in the seven innings he has thrown this month, either. Ryan Tepera, another acquisition from the deadline from the Cubs, has had the best month out of anyone.
This team has plenty of big names, but they need to pitch like it to be stable enough for an October run. The Blue Jays send Berrios, a familiar face to the White Sox, to the hill. He ranks in the 77th percentile in chase rate, but every other peripheral metric shows he is slightly above average.
The White Sox may not necessarily win this matchup, especially with Berrios on the bump. They have not shown enough in their time against him in the American League Central. On the other hand, the Toronto bullpen is weak and their 4.85 combined ERA with plenty of pitchers unavailable on Friday should play into Chicago’s hand.
