Detroit vs Toronto Probable Pitchers

A promising start to his MLB career by Tigers right-hander Garrett Hill quickly plummeted southward. Hill worked six innings of two-hit ball, allowing one earned run and getting 4-1 win over Cleveland in his MLB debut on July 4.

In three starts since, Hill has allowed 12 earned runs in 15 innings and is 0-2. The Tigers have lost all three of those games. In his last start against San Diego, Hill struck out two and walked four.

Hill is 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in two road starts. He’ll be facing the Blue Jays for the first time in his brief MLB career.

Hill vs Berrios Stats

1-2 Record 7-4
5.57 ERA 5.20
6.82 xERA 5.24
1.29 WHIP 1.37
2.92 SO/W Ratio 3.85

The Toronto offense tends to show up whenever right-hander Jose Berrios is on the bump. In 12 of his 20 starts this season, the Blue Jays have scored five or more runs. Five times, they’ve clicked for double digits on the scoreboard.

Berrios rates among the bottom percentile of MLB hurlers in xwOBAcon (.425)). He’s in the bottom 4% in xSLG (.486), the bottom 8% in hard hit percentage (45.0) and the bottom 9% in both xBA (.277) and exit velocity (90.6).

Berrios is 2-0 with a 3.41 ERA in five July starts. He’s a perfect 5-0 in 10 home starts with a 3.41 ERA.

He beat Detroit 10-1 on June 10. Berrios allowed one earned run in eight innings. Over 13 career appearances against the Tigers including 12 starts, Berrios is 6-2 with a 4.30 ERA.

Tigers vs Blue Jays Prediction

The Blue Jays are 11-0 in the last 11 home starts by Berrios. The club record is 12 start home wins, set by Hall of Famer Roy Halladay in 2007-08. Toronto is 11-3 SU over the last 14 games.

Meanwhile, Hill is absolutely dismal on the road. And as mentioned earlier, run support is a consistent Berrios ally.

Pick: Toronto Blue Jays RL -1.5 (-125)
