Yankees vs. Blue Jays Props
DJ LeMahieu To Get A Hit
We do not care what the odds are on this one. DJ LeMahieu is a hitting machine and he’s always a safe bet to notch at least one hit. He leads off, which means he’s going to get a ton of at-bats every game. Add in the fact that he has Aaron Judge behind him and it means pitchers have to throw him strikes.
LeMahieu led MLB with a .364 average in 2020. However, he was held hitless on Opening Day. We feel like he’s due for at least one hit on Saturday, if not more.

Aaron Hicks To Hit A Home Run (+500)
Will Aaron Hicks hit one to the sticks? He should have more than enough opportunities to do so on Saturday afternoon. Hicks is sitting comfortably between Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton in the middle of the Yankees’ order. Pitchers can pitch around Aaron Judge and DJ LeMahieu to get Hicks if they want, but the switch-hitter has incredible plate discipline. That’s not a situation any pitcher wants to be in.
If Judge and LeMahieu can set the table for Hicks, he should get some pitches to hit. Ross Stripling is a righty which means Hicks will be hitting from the left side. The short porch is right there for him.

Corey Kluber Under Strikeouts
Taking the under on Corey Kluber strikeouts does not mean that we think he’s going to have a bad game. Not by a long shot. However, it might take a few starts for Kluber to find his out pitches. The former Indian and Ranger has only made eight starts since 2018 and although he looked good in spring training, the regular season is a whole different ball game.
Take the under on Kluber strikeouts, but keep an eye on some of his other props. He could easily notch his first win with the Yankees if the bats can get to Stripling early.
