Kansas City Royals
Jason Vargas’ last start was against Michael Pineda and the Yankees when they were in Kansas City last week.
It ended up being Vargas’ worst start in what has otherwise been a sparkling starts to the season and his ERA doubled – from 1.01 to 2.03 – with six earned runs in four innings, lowlighted by Aaron Hicks’ three-run homer in a five-run New York fourth.
Vargas is 5-2 for a team that is 18-25 because he’s been that good most of the time. The Royals rarely get him runs, though they did give him seven in that loss to Pineda.
Most of that damage came late against a New York bullpen that KC will try to take advantage of again on Monday.
New York Yankees
That’s because Pineda has been pretty darn good himself this season, posting a WHIP just a shade over 1.00 in nearly 50 innings.
The 6’7″ Dominican has walked just eight batters compared to 55 strikeouts and has proven to be completely overpowering at times.
He’s gotten through at least six full innings in each of his last three outings.
New York had lost three straight prior to avoiding the sweep yesterday afternoon down in Tampa. The Yankees return home still in first place in the AL East however, a game ahead of Baltimore in the loss column.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: both of the starting pitchers improve on last week’s performance and keep this one under.
Depending on what type of pitcher somebody is, he can either gain an advantage or suffer a disadvantage facing the same team twice in a row. I can’t speculate on that regarding either guy but I just believe both are better than what we saw out of them last week.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8.0 (-110)
I have this one ‘capped at 7.0 so this is a decent play here. Vargas has to keep the ball in the park.
