Why you should back the Yankees

First baseman Anthony Rizzo is a big-time slugger for the Yankees. Rizzo owns outstanding power and run-producing abilities with his monster swing. He also plays sound defense in the corner as he’s a four-time Gold Glove Winner. The three-time All-Star is ranked eighth in the MLB in home runs (17) and RBIs (47). In his last outing, Rizzo went 2-for-3 with a grand slam.

Second baseman Gleyber Torres is an all-around talent. Torres is a pure hitter with the capability of hitting for power and average. The two-time All-Star has good arm strength and range on the defensive side as well. Torres is batting .254 with 12 home runs and 29 RBIs. On June 17, he went 2-for-4 with two doubles and one RBI. 

Why you should back the Blue Jays

First baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has a natural and effortless swing. Guerrero Jr. knows how to make consistent contact with the baseball due to his pitch recognition and awareness at the plate. The 2021 All-Star is leading the team in home runs (16) and RBIs (39). On June 15, he went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, two RBIs and three runs scored.

Center fielder George Springer is also an important contributor. Springer has a great combination of home-run power with solid speed on the defensive end. The three-time All-Star displayed enough range in the outfield with a reliable throwing arm. Springer has a batting average of .266 with 12 home runs and 33 RBIs.
