After claiming a second-consecutive NL East crown, Atlanta enters today’s series vs. Kansas City minus All Star Freddie Freeman. Freeman, shoulder inflammation, will remain sidelined until the Braves’ postseason begins.
With their batting average leader resting, and the Dodgers out of range for the National League’s top record, tonight Atlanta seeks revenge for a curious late-July sweep opposite the Royals.
Kansas City stole that two-game interleague set while outscoring the Braves 7-4 and placing a loss on Julio Teheran’s record.
Teheran (10-10, 3.55 ERA) looks to redeem himself this evening and navigate his scheduled 2019 finale on a positive note. Atlanta offered Teheran no run support July 24 as KC’s two-scores gained off Julio through six innings proved enough.
Recently, Teheran lost both starts last week vs. Philadelphia. The Phillies gained 10 runs through as many innings off the struggling 28-year-old hurler.
Mini-slump aside, Atlanta sports an impressive 19-13 mark in 2019 when Teheran appears.
Kansas City Royals
Another 100-loss year hasn’t kept blue-chip prospects like AL homerun leader (45) Jorge Soler, Whit Merrifield, Hunter Dozier or Aldaberto Mondesi from making their mark. Though, Mondesi, and his 42 stolen bases, are shut down until next spring.
Minus emerging talent, KC has dropped eight-of-ten contests -hopeful MLB rotation pieces Jakob Junis and Brad Keller are also out indefinitely. Sunday, probable AL Central champion Minnesota outslugged KC 12-8.
And while the Royals lost three-of-four in Minnesota, Kansas City’s offense managed 21 runs during those four contests.
That run display bodes well if Atlanta, sans Freeman, again struggles vs. KC and Danny Duffy at the plate.
Duffy looks to repeat his six-inning, one-run July 23 success tonight vs. Atlanta. The veteran hurler (6-6, 4.30 ERA) was in peak form opposite the Braves as he recorded 11 strikeouts and never allowed Atlanta offensive wiggle room.
Duffy has allowed just two runs through his last 19 innings pitched.
