Danny Salazar looked as if he was ready to settle down and throw his first real dominant start of the year. He was shutting out the Royals through four but then struggled to get through the fifth.
In fact, he didn’t get through the fifth. Salazar gave up four hits, including a two-run shot to Eric Hosmer. He didn’t make it out of the inning and finished with those two runs to his name in 4.2 innings.
Josh Tomlin hasn’t been his usual precise self so far this season. His walk numbers are great (3 in 23.1 innings) but it would seem as though he’s getting too much of the plate, too often.
Opponents are hitting .369 against him, which has his ERA in the 8s. The Indians will be patient, as they should, but Tomlin has to find a way to regain his command on the corners if he wants to be successful.
Kansas City Royals
Jason Hammel turned in a really good start for the Royals last night and the bullpen took care of the rest. Kansas City’s four pitchers combined to allow just four hits and one run, an Edwin Encarnacion solo homer.
Jason Vargas takes his turn. He allowed a run in six innings in his last start and his ERA actually went up to 1.42.
It’s been a hot start for the lefty veteran out of Long Beach. He had struck out 28 to just two walks going into that last start against the White Sox but he killed that ratio a bit with three walks and just one K.
The Indians’ roster is hitting .264 career against Vargas.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: it goes under.
If Tomlin pitches the way he did last season and even before that, this is a number to take advantage of. Of course, if what has happened in the first five weeks of the season continues, it will fly over.

I’m willing to bet on Tomlin this time, against Kansas City.
