This AL Central matchup includes two teams that have been rivals for many seasons.
The Cleveland Indians currently stand as the top record in the American League.
The Royals are baseball’s reigning champions, but they currently stand in 3rd place in the AL Central.
The Cleveland Indians lineup has been much of the reason they are having so much success this past month. Francisco Lindor is leading the way after his first all-star appearance.
Lindor is hitting .301 on the year with 31 extra base hits and 46 RBIs. Jose Ramirez is off to a solid start this season.
J-Ram is hitting .294 on the year with 22 doubles and 41 RBIs so far this season. Carlos Santana has turned the switch late in the first half.
Santana is hitting .257 on the year with 20 long balls and 51 RBIs, typically batting from the leadoff spot.
The Indians have their 2016 ace Danny Salazar on the mound against K.C. Salazar is currently 10-3 on the year with a 2.75 E.R.A. and 118 strikeouts. Salazar struggled in his last start against the Yankees where he received a no decision.
He threw in 5.2 innings of work where he gave up 6 earned runs on 8 hits. Salazar struck out 5 batters and walked 2 in the no decision.
He looks to bounce back in this start.
Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals lineup has been working well through the season and they are led by Eric Hosmer. Hosmer is hitting .299 on the season with 13 dingers and 51 RBIs.
Kendrys Morales leads the team in home runs with 15; he is also hitting .257 with 47 RBIs on the year. Lorenzo Cain is hitting .290 with 20 extra base hits and 39 RBIs.
The Royals will have their hands full with Danny Salazar coming off the all-star break.
Brian Flynn gets the start today. He has only pitched in a relief role in 2016, he has managed to eat up innings when called upon.
He pitched five innings against the Astros on June 24, as well as four innings against the Indians on May 6. The Royals pitching staff has thrown well this season, they have an 8.36 k/9 ratio with a 4.19 E.R.A.
The bullpen has recorded 21 saves and they Royals staff have a combined WHIP of 1.32. Whoever is on the mound will have to face the hot Indians.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
I’m looking for Salazar to be one of the AL’s best pitchers again in the second half, and the extended break he has had will lead the Indians to a win.
The Royals lineup has not been anything to be scared of this year, and they are usually a team to hit for contact.
Look for Salazar to shut this Royals club down to get to his 11th win on the season.
