The Indians were postponed on Thursday and got to leave Detroit early to make their way to Kansas City. The last place Royals await.
Danny Salazar probably didn’t have much of a problem with the rain-out. His start was pushed back, yes, but now he’ll get an extra day of rest to go against the Royals, rather than the Tigers.
Kansas City’s offense has been struggling. The lineup is littered with batting averages in the .200s, so Salazar has all the reason he should need to attack head-on.
This will be a good opportunity to pound the zone with his good stuff and get a shutdown start. Salazar has been missing one of those outings this season.
Kansas City Royals
Jason Hammel is looking to turn the page on a poor first month with his new team.
Hammel finished April 0-3 with a 6.65 ERA. He only has one real good start to his name in a Kansas City uniform, six innings of one-run ball against the Giants.
Opponents are hitting .319 against him but the even bigger concern is the 13 to 19 walk::strikeout ratio. That tells me Hammel is struggling with his stuff. He better transition to becoming more of a contact pitcher if he wants to survive his elder years.
