Los Angeles Angels vsToronto Blue Jays Prediction

The Los Angeles Angels are solid favorites to beat the Toronto Blue Jays. The Angels have a better than 55% chance of winning based on 10,000 game simulations generated one play at a time by the AccuScore Simulation Supercomputer.

Griffin Canning has a 35% chance of having a Quality Start (QS) while Ross Stripling has a 24% chance of a QS. If Griffin Canning has a quality start the Angels has a 78% chance of winning. His simulated strikeout to walk ratio is 4.2 and he has a 30% chance of having a 5 to 1 K/BB ratio. When he has a 5/1 ratio the Angels win 56%. In Ross Stripling quality starts the Blue Jays win 71%. He has a 27% chance of having a 5 to 1 K/BB ratio and if he does his team wins 71% of simulations. In simulations we tracked the batter for each team that was most productive based his average hits, walks and RBI per simulation.

He has a 49% chance of having a big game with 3+ Hits, Walks, RBI and if he has a big game the Blue Jays have a 52% chance of winning. The most productive batter for the Los Angeles Angels is Mike Trout who averaged 3.45 hits+walks+RBI.

Los Angeles Angels vs Toronto Blue Jays Prediction

One of the more intriguing games on the MLB schedule Thursday features the Toronto Blue Jays hosting the Los Angeles Angels at their spring training home in Dunedin, Florida. The moneyline is as tight as can be with the Angels listed at -105 and the Blue Jays set at -115.

Toronto Blue Jays Preview

The Blue Jays made headlines to start the season by winning two of three against the Yankees. They added a win over Texas on Monday to get to 3-1 on the season. Alas, Toronto has dropped two in a row following a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Rangers on Wednesday. At 3-3, the Blue Jays hope that their home opener, albeit at their spring training home, can help them get going.

Part of Toronto’s problem in recent days has been the fact that George Springer remains on the IL. Springer was a big offseason addition and was expected to serve as the leadoff hitter for the Blue Jays this season. His absence has been felt, especially with some of the team’s table setters off to a slow start. On the bright side, Marcus Semien has provided some power with three home runs in six games. Randal Grichuk and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. have also helped to carry the Toronto lineup through the first week of the season.

On the mound for Toronto on Thursday will be Ross Stripling, who joined the Blue Jays last summer via a trade with the Dodgers. Stripling’s first start of the season didn’t go particularly well, as he gave up three runs over 3.1 innings against the Yankees. But his track record suggests that he’ll improve and be more effective moving forward. Meanwhile, key members of the Toronto bullpen have pitched well thus far, giving the Blue Jays a good chance of holding onto a lead.

Los Angeles Angels Preview

The Angels got some attention last weekend when they took three of four games against the Chicago White Sox, the team that’s expected to win the AL Central. After splitting a two-game set with the Astros earlier this week, the Halos are about to begin their first road trip of the season just one game behind Houston in the AL West.

To the surprise of nobody, Mike Trout has been the club’s offensive leader thus far. Through six games, he’s hitting .368 with an OPS of 1.292. He’s gotten plenty of help from first baseman Jared Walsh, who’s hitting .412 with two home runs. Two-way player Shohei Ohtani has also homered twice, helping to make up for Anthony Rendon being a little slow out of the gate.

The Angels will send youngster Griffin Canning to the mound on Thursday night. This will be Canning’s first start of 2021 after he was pushed back in the rotation. After an uneven performance this spring and the Angels having five more established starters, Canning could be pitching to earn a spot in the rotation despite a solid season in 2020.

Full Game Prediction

At first glance, this game figures to be a toss-up, but the BetQL model is leaning toward the Angels. L.A. is averaging 5.5 runs per game through the first week of the season while the Blue Jays are scoring just 3.3 runs per game, which is a meaningful difference, even early in the season. With Trout, Walsh, and Ohtani all performing well and Rendon capable of exploding at any point, our model believes the Angels are more likely to collect some big hits. Plus, Stripling’s troubling start last week doesn’t fill us with confidence against another powerful lineup. 

The BetQL model favors the Angels with a three-star pick. Make sure you sign up for a BetQL subscription to get advanced stats and projections for every MLB game.

Blue Jays Injuries
Player Image
Eric PardinhoTOR | SP
Ready to go
Pardinho underwent the procedure back in February of last year and missed the entire 2020 season while rehabbing. He may not be fully ready for game action until a month or two into the season, but it appears as though he's set for a fairly normal spring buildup. When he does eventually get into game action, it won't come anywhere near the big-league level, as he's yet to pitch above Low-A.
OUT
Player Image
Bryan BakerTOR | RP
Could resume throwing soon
Baker is dealing with a Grade 1 right elbow sprain which reportedly involves some ligament damage, but the Blue Jays still seem hopeful that he can get back on a mound soon. He's yet to make his big-league debut and isn't on the 40-man roster, however, so he isn't expected to break camp with the team even if fully healthy.
OUT
Player Image
Ross StriplingTOR | SP
Arriving Wednesday
Stripling has been away from the team due to the birth of his child. A Wednesday arrival means he'll still have more than a month to get ready for Opening Day, so the delay shouldn't significantly impact his push for a rotation spot.
10IL
Player Image
Jordan RomanoTOR | SP
Fails to make playoff roster
A sprained finger has kept Romano out for all of September and will keep him out at least a little while longer, despite an original timeline of 2-to-4 weeks. He's been throwing off a mound for over a week but is evidently not yet ready to go. Rafael Dolis and Anthony Bass remain Toronto's top high-leverage options in his absence.
10IL
Player Image
Tyler ChatwoodTOR | RP
Placed on injured list
Chatwood made three relief appearances to begin the season and allowed four hits and a walk while striking out three in 2.2 scoreless innings. However, he hadn't pitched since Monday and will now miss time due to a triceps issue. Manager Charlie Montoyo said Friday that he wasn't sure how much time Chatwood will miss, but he's optimistic that he'll be in line for a short-term absence. Joel Payamps and Ty Tice were recalled by the Blue Jays in corresponding moves.
10IL
Player Image
Julian MerryweatherTOR | SP
Throws two simulated innings
Merryweather has been dealing with a tight back for most of camp. He's working his way towards game action and is expected to make his next appearance in a Grapefruit League game, but it's not yet clear if he'll have enough time to get up to speed by Opening Day.
10IL
Player Image
Kirby YatesTOR | RP
Shifts to 60-day IL
The transaction clears up a spot on the 40-man roster for lefty Tommy Milone, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move. Yates is slated to miss the entire 2021 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery March 24.
60IL
Player Image
Tom HatchTOR | P
Resumes throwing
Hatch left a mid-March start with elbow inflammation but has seemingly avoided any serious issues. He'll have to build his arm strength back up, and his return date still isn't clear, but he doesn't appear to be lined up for an extended absence.
10IL
Player Image
Patrick MurphyTOR | SP
Placed on 60-day injured list
Murphy had a delayed start to spring training due to an AC joint injury, and he'll miss the start of the regular season as a result of the injury. It's not yet clear when he'll begin working at spring training or when he'll be ready to return to game action. The right-hander made four relief appearances for Toronto last season and allowed one earned run over six innings.
60IL
Player Image
T.J. ZeuchTOR | SP
Won't pitch again this spring
The right-hander has been dealing with a lat strain for a week, and it seems like the issue hasn't gotten better. Instead of rushing Zeuch back, the Blue Jays will instead take the cautious approach and wait until he's completely past this issue before returning to pitch again. Once he's fully healthy, Zeuch will likely spend 2019 at Double-A and/or Triple-A. However, his availability for Opening Day seems unlikely at best given this development.
10IL
Player Image
David PhelpsTOR | RP
Nearing activation
Phelps has pitched in back-to-back days, so the Blue Jays will give him another day or two to rest prior to bringing him back from the shelf. He hasn't appeared in a big-league game since undergoing Tommy John surgery in March of 2018.
DTD
Player Image
Nate PearsonTOR | SP
throws bullpen Thursday
Pearson's throwing session Thursday marked the first time he threw off a mound since re-aggravating his groin injury in mid-March. Manager Charlie Montoyo said that Pearson will essentially take part in a throwing program similar to the one he would do in spring training, and he'll be deliberately be built up as a starter in the coming weeks. Ross Stripling should continue to serve as a starter while Pearson builds back up.
10IL
Player Image
George SpringerTOR | CF
over oblique issue, managing quad
Springer appeared close to a return from the 10-day injured list until last Tuesday, when he experiencing tightness in his quad while running the bases. The Blue Jays slowed down Springer's rehab program as a result, but he already seems to be making good progress from what an MRI revealed was a low-grade quad strain. He'll look to steadily increase his activities in the days to come, but the Blue Jays have yet to release a firm target date for Springer's 2021 debut.
