Seattle Mariners vs Toronto Blue Jays 5/16/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Seattle Mariners will meet with the Toronto Blue Jays in MLB action in Rogers Centre, ON, CAN, on Monday, May 16, 2022, at 7:07 PM ET.

 

The Mariners lost 13 of their previous 16 matches heading into the weekend. By taking two of three in Queens, they took a major step in the right direction and will now try to put together a string of excellent plays. Seattle’s offensive was in the middle of the pack thus far, generating slightly over four runs per game (19th overall).

 

The Mariners are hitting .235 as a club, with a team OPS of.692 (14th). With a .331 batting average and 25 RBIs, Ty France was the team’s best player.

 

Eugenio Saurez has the most home runs with six. Julio Rodrigez, the young prodigy, is steadily regaining his form after a shaky start, going 4/4 with his second home run of the season on Sunday.

 

Chris Flexen has a 1-5 record and a 4.24 ERA heading into Monday’s game. He’s returning from a bad start against Philadelphia when he was pounded for six runs on nine hits in five shaky innings.

 

Seattle’s starting pitching remains a significant question mark, with key offseason addition Robbie Ray faltering out of the gate and Logan Gilbert taking a step back after a great start.

 

Getting Flexen back on track would be a critical first step toward restoring some back-end stability. With a 3.74 team ERA, the Mariners are presently ranked 17th.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Seattle’s last 9 matches.
  • The Seattle Mariners are 5-13 SU in their last 18 matches.
  • Seattle is 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches against Toronto.

Seattle Mariners vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions 5/16/2022

 

After a dismal 2-7 road trip that featured trips in Cleveland, New York, and Tampa Bay, the Blue Jays return home. Toronto will be hoping to rebound after dropping all three series on the trip. Surprisingly, the Blue Jays failed to score regularly in 2022, sitting 22nd in the league with 3.82 runs per game.

 

While the Blue Jays are 7th in the league in home runs, they failed to score in other ways, with a club batting average of.233 and an OPS of.675. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. leads the team in batting average (.280) and RBIs (20), while George Springer has the most home runs with seven.

 

On Monday, Yusei Kikuchi took the mound with a 1-1 record and a 4.15 ERA. Kikuchi battled to keep runners off the basepaths in his first six outings, walking 3 or more in four of his past five games and sporting a 1.41 WHIP.

 

In his last start, he pitched 5.1 innings of a two-run ball while allowing only two hits and striking out five batters. The Blue Jays will be hoping he can give some much-needed depth.

 

  • The total went OVER in 6 of Toronto’s previous 9 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Toronto’s last 9 matches against Seattle.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Toronto’s previous 5 matches at home.

Seattle Mariners vs Toronto Blue Jays. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. After a grueling road trip, Toronto will be hoping that some home cooking would cure their long-term issues and a poor start to the season. They had a good home record, going 10-6 thus far.

 

Despite a successful weekend, Seattle underperformed on the road recently, finishing 3-9 in their previous 12 matches. With huge performances from George Springer and Vladimir Guerrero Jr., look for the Blue Jays’ ailing batters to awaken against a beleaguered Flexen.

 

Over the previous nine games, Seattle’s pitching allowed more than 5.3 runs per game. Toronto will take the lead early and hold on in what seems to be a slugfest. The Toronto Blue Jays will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
