This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Baltimore Orioles (14-19) at Toronto Blue Jays (18-14)

The pitching matchup favors the Blue Jays as well, as they will send an experienced right-hander in Chase Anderson and his 3.68 ERA to the mound. The Orioles will counter with lefty Keegan Akin, who will be making his first career MLB start.
