Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays Wild Card Series Preview

The Tampa Bay Rays (40-20) finished up the shortened 2020 MLB season with the best record in MLB, winning fully two out of every three games they played. The team pulled this off with excellent pitching, including the third best Earned Run Average in the league (3.56). Expect starting pitchers Blake Snell (4-2) and Tyler Glasnow (5-1) to play a heavy role in this series, and the Rays’ hope to close this out quickly to prepare for a divisional series.

The Toronto Blue Jays (32-28) are one of the teams that wouldn’t have made the Playoffs under the old system, but they’ve got a chance at glory in 2020. The Blue Jays finished third in their division, and just two games over .500. However, as the sayings go they reset the records in the playoffs. The Blue Jays have been powered by hitting, and they were a top ten team in runs scored. Outfielders Randal Grichuk and Teoscar Hernández along with third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. combined for 102 RBI in just sixty games. If they get hot, this will be a series to watch.
