Kansas City Royals
Kansas City’s post season hopes are dimming with every passing day that they don’t make up ground for AL Wildcard spot #2. It appears the race will come down to Toronto and Baltimore, with Detroit looming as a potential threat as well.
KC certainly won’t have a pitching matchup working in their favor here,
as Jason Vargas will return to the mound in his 2nd start of the season vs the dominant Corey Kluber going for the Indians.
Vargas only lasted 3.0 innings last week in his first outing since returning from a 14-month lay off due to Tommy John surgery, though he only allowed two hits and a single earned run in that start.
The Indians have a comfortable division lead, sitting 7 games up on the 2nd place Tigers and 10.5 games up on the Royals.
Their offense has been led by Mike Napoli and his 34 homers and 94 RBI on the year, and by Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez in the average and OBP metrics.
The incumbent starter, Corey Kluber, has racked up 215 strikeouts across his 204.2 innings this season.
He’s registered a 3.12 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP while holding opposing batters to just a .213 average, and the 2014 AL CY young award winner is once again in the running for the award this season.

Free Kansas City Royals vs Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
It’s hard not to like the Indians here with Kluber on the mound and Vargas still remaining on a pitch-count.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland -1.5
The KC bullpen will look to hold a tough Cleveland offense at bay, but putting up run support will be difficult vs the former AL Cy Young winner.
