With that said, the Yankees haven’t played well over the last couple of weeks and the Blue Jays have shown flashes over the last month or so. Yusei Kikuchi isn’t the worst pitcher in the world, and he’s been respectable at home this season. Even with Stroman on the other side the value is with the Blue Jays and the slight plus money.
