Toronto Blue Jays vs New York Yankees MLB Baseball Preview

Toronto Blue Jays Will Try to Get a Win When Meet New York Yankees from Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York - Major League Baseball (MLB) Baseball Match Preview and Prediction Game on Thursday, May 27, 2021.

Preview, Prediction and Picks

The New York Yankees will be without first baseman Luke Voit, who led the majors with 22 home runs in 2020, when they host the Toronto Blue Jays in doubles on Thursday.

After announcing that Wednesday's game has been postponed and will be composed as part of a double title, Yankees manager Aaron Boone has received more bad news for the team.

Boone said Voit will be placed on the disabled list for a right oblique strain and that right-hander Corey Kluber will miss two months with a subscapular strain in his right shoulder.

Kluber left a 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays on Tuesday after three innings. They did an MRI on his right shoulder Wednesday. Kluber threw a no-hitter against the Texas Rangers last week.

Sees missed the first 34 games of the season while recovering from left knee surgery on March 29.

Boone said Voit's lean problem started Saturday against the Chicago White Sox. The coach said Voit told team staff after Tuesday's game that he "felt like he really couldn't let go the way he wanted."

Boone has said that he will use Mike Ford, DJ LeMahieu and possibly Miguel Andujar at first base.

The postponement delayed the major league debut of Blue Jays right-hander Alek Manoah, who was promoted from Triple-A Buffalo.

He will face right-hander Domingo German (4-2, 3.05 ERA) in Game 1 on Thursday.

Manoah is 3-0 with a 0.50 ERA in three starts with Buffalo this season.

Toronto will start left-hander Robbie Ray (2-1, 3.42) against left-hander Jordan Montgomery (2-1, 4.07) in Game 2.

The German is 2-3 with a 3.86 ERA in six career games (four starts) against Toronto. He suffered the April 4 loss to Toronto when he allowed three earned runs in three innings.

Ray allowed one walk and struck out 49 in his last six starts that spanned 37 1/3 innings. He is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three career starts against the Yankees. He was defeated in New York on April 12 when he allowed two runs in five innings.

Montgomery is 2-1 with a 3.21 ERA in six career games (five as a starter) against Toronto.

With the day off and two seven-inning games on Thursday, the Blue Jays should have a break.

New Yorker Giancarlo Stanton (quadriceps strain) scored the goals and scored before Wednesday's game was postponed. He is close to a comeback.
