After winning two of three games against the Mets over the weekend, the New York Yankees will head into Toronto with a chance to leave with the AL East lead. Entering the start of the three-game series on Monday, the Yankees are 2.5 games back, which would allow them to be atop the division for the first time since August 24 with a series sweep. The current AL East-leading Blue Jays will not go down easily, though they are coming off a series loss to the last place Boston Red Sox. Both the Blue Jays and Yankees are expected to make the playoffs, but this series could be a major deciding factor in which team wins the division, and which team has to play in the single-elimination Wild Card game.
Prices for this series on the secondary market range greatly by day. Blue Jays tickets for the series opener on Monday night have an average price of just $48 with a get-in price of $10. That price is a great deal fro Blue Jays fans, since David Price will get the start for Toronto in the opener, while Adam Warren will take the mound for the Yankees.
On Tuesday night, the average price for Blue Jays vs Yankees tickets is $79.83, though the get-in price drops to $9. The pitching matchup will feature Marco Estrada against Luis Severino. Estrada has been great for the Blue Jays this season, pitching to a 3.14 ERA. While some of his advanced stats say he hasn’t changed much as a pitcher, such as his 4.42 FIP, Estrada has found his success by limiting the amount of home runs he has given up from past seasons.
The finale of the series on Wednesday night will easily be the most expensive with an average price of $104.16 and a get-in price of $15. Marcus Stroman will take on Ivan Nova for the final meeting between these two teams in the regular season.
Following the series, the Blue Jays will host their final home games against the Tampa Bay Rays before going on the road to Baltimore and Tampa to end the season. The Yankees, meanwhile, will head back to the Bronx to host the White Sox and Red Sox for an eight-game homestand. They will then end the regular season on the road in Baltimore.
