Boston Red Sox
Boston has Chris Sale on the mound on Friday, which means the bullpen should be ready to go in this game in case David Price did what he did the last time out, which was get pounded.
But that start was against the Yankees. He should be able to handle Kansas City’s popgun lineup just fine. It’s good to know the guys backing him up should be ready to go, though.
The rumors about Boston going after infield help have died down just a bit with Eduardo Nunez’s production improving. Still, his OBP is still under .290, which is unacceptable for a World Series hopeful that has two other guys producing even less underneath him in the lineup (Jackie Bradley Jr. and the catcher spot).
It worries me to think how Boston will survive if JD Martinez were to go down, or even simply not be a triple crown threat for a prolonged stretch.
Kansas City Royals
Brad Keller has been up with the Royals all season in his 22-year-old season after getting drafted out of high school four years ago.
He posted an ERA just over 2.00 in two months coming out of the bullpen before Ned Yost called on him for help in the starting rotation.
He’s been going deeper and deeper into games ever since. He started with three innings on the last day of May, went into the fifth the next time and into the sixth the time after that. Then he finished six, seven and eight in each of his last three starts. He’s gone deeper into the game with each additional chance.
So all he has left to do now is get into the ninth inning against Boston. He isn’t a high volume strikeout guy but doesn’t walk many either. He’ll make you earn it.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: under.
I’ll give a nod to Price only because Kansas City’s lineup is awful. This Keller kid could have just the makeup to stymy the Sox.
