Featured Game | Kansas City Royals vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Why you should back the Blue Jays

First baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is a power hitter in the lineup for Toronto who has a pure swing and can make consistent contact with the ball. The 2021 All-Star is aggressive at the plate and leads the team in home runs (13). He also has a batting average of .249 along with 30 RBIs, and he's on a six-game hitting streak.

Outfielder George Springer displays outstanding range on defense with a sound throwing arm to play multiple outfield positions. Springer has an impressive combination of power and speed as well. The three-time All-Star is batting .267 with 11 homers and a team-high 30 RBI. On June 5, he went 2-for-5 with a solo home run. 

Why you should back the Royals

Outfielder Andrew Benintendi is an amazing hitter due to his exceptional feel and plate presence. Benintendi doesn't have many holes in his swing and can smack the ball all across the yard. The 27-year-old is ranked ninth in the MLB in batting average (.320) with two homers, 21 RBI, and he also leads the team in hits (63).

Third baseman Hunter Dozier is another calm option for Toronto. Dozier plays good defense in the corner and has a strong arm to go along with that. The 30-year-old has good power and run-producing ability as he has five home runs and 19 RBI. On June 4, he went 1-for-4 with two runs driven in.
