Kansas City Royals
Fillmyer pitched in relief in his last outing while Kansas City would fall to the Chicago White Sox 6-9. He pitched 2.1 innings of work giving up three hits, one earned run and one home run, while he struck out two and walked two.
In a small sample of 15.2 innings of work, the rookie owns a bleak strikeout (4.02 K/9) to walk (4.60 BB/9) rate, while he has done a decent job containing the long ball (1.15 HR/9) and stranding base runners (79.2% LOB%). The end-result is a misleading 3.45 ERA and an even higher 5.44 FIP meaning he’s had luck and solid defense backing him up.
Kansas City continues to play losing baseball as they could only win one of their six contests this past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .259/.328/.412 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 28 RBI.
Chicago White Sox
Giolito was actually solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start, but was tagged with his eighth loss of the season in a 1-2 loss to the Houston Astros. He went 7.1 innings giving up three hits, two earned runs and one home run, while he struck out three and walked three.
That one start was promising, but in his last five outings Giolito has given up 19 earned runs and a high eight home runs. I suppose the 23:14 K:BB ratio during that span is solid, but in his last three outings he owns a bleak 9:10 K:BB. His 6.59 ERA isn’t that far off from his slightly lower 6.34 FIP.
Chicago continues to play sub-par baseball only winning two of their five contests in the past week. During that span their lineup is slashing .242/.307/.379 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction: Chicago edges out Kansas City at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: White Sox -128 & OVER 9.5 Runs
Kansas City has lost in all of Fillmyer’s five appearances this season, while four of them have been by two or more runs. I’ll ride that streak even though Giolito owns an 8.65 ERA at home, but his last start could be a sign and he’ll be facing a weak Kansas City lineup.
