Kansas City’s new lineup looked really good against Texas but that is a bad pitching team. This series will give us a bette indication of just how real this new Royals group is.
Kansas City Royals
In the first two games of their series against Texas the Royals scored 25 runs. I thought the lineup would be really good but I never saw that coming. Michael Taylor and Whit Merrifield have matching stat lines with a .462 average, 2 homers and 6 RBIS. That is a very encouraging start.
Danny Duffy is making his first start of the season. It is a nice development that he is now the fourth starter but at 30 he should probably have developed more himself already. Taking on Cleveland will help him look good.
The starting pitching has been bad through three games. The relievers, with the exception of Wade Davis have been pretty sharp though. They need to start balancing that out though.
An easy series to start the season against Detroit turned out to be anything but for the Indians.Not only did they lose two games but in those two they scored a combined four runs, so the concern about their lineup is very real. They did bust out for nine runs in the series finale so maybe they can carry that over to this one.
Logan Allen does not have the reputation of some of the other Indians’ hurlers but he was their best starting pitcher in spring training. Odds are he is going to be in the rotation and pitch well because it is Cleveland.
Over the three games only one reliever has given up a run. That is a pretty nice start to the season and with the arms they have they can keep it up.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Kansas City offense has been the story behind the early success of the Royals. I think they can bring that to Cleveland and that we can count on the Indians’ offense to be better than it was against Detroit. Put those together and the over looks like the play here.
