The Philadelphia Phillies are 18-7 home at Citizens Bank Park on the season, but the Toronto Blue Jays own a respectable 11-10 road record and I think the value is on the visitors in this matchup.
Sam Gaviglio (1-0, 0.93 ERA) will take the ball for Toronto for his fourth appearance (second start) of the season. He struck out six through 5 1/3 shutout innings against Oakland his last time out and should be pumped up here, looking to make his case for a long-term spot in the rotation.
Zach Eflin (1-0, 1.56 ERA) will take the ball for Philadelphia for his fourth start of the year. The 24 year old was tagged with four runs (two earned) in 4 2/3 innings against St. Louis his last time out and has issued a total of six walks through his last two starts. He has given up 10 hits and four(!) homers through 13 at bats against the current Toronto roster. The Blue Jays have one of the top offenses across the major leagues, averaging 4.7 runs per game and the team’s 65 homers through 50 games are the fourth most in baseball.
Blue Jays are 13-3 in the last 16 meetings and 10-1 in the last 11 meetings in Philadelphia.
