MLB Odds: All-Star Happ takes Mound Against Red Sox

The Toronto Blue Jays continue their eastern swing this Friday against the MLB-leading Boston Red Sox. After dropping two of three to the New York Yankees with a two-game mini series at Atlanta sandwiched between, the Jays touch down in Boston to take on their former teammate, David Price.

All signs point to the Blue Jays season being over, but that hasn’t stopped starter JA Happ from putting together one of the finest half-seasons of his career. The lefty has been far and away the best pitcher on the Jays’ staff. He’s held opposing batters to a .227 batting average and has wracked up 10 wins on a Toronto team that hasn’t been doing much winning this season. He’ll get the ball this Thursday for the first of a four-game series against the Red Sox.

Fellow lefty, David Price, is expected to take the mound for Boston in Game 1. Despite having an early-season scare following a carpal tunnel syndrome diagnosis, the lanky lefty has had a healthy season. That’s led to Price pitching 101.1 innings through 18 starts, a much-needed rebound after an injury-plagued 2017. While he’s not the Ace of Boston’s staff, he provides critical middle-of-the-order depth, which the Red Sox will need down the stretch. The battle of the lefties kicks off at 7:10 PM ET.
