The Kansas City Royals are coming off of a tough series loss against the Cincinnati Reds, and will now be hoping they can start stringing some wins together, as they take on the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals need to quickly make up for some of their poor form recently, and they are most likely to do that with the bats, as they have a solid batting lineup, but have not really been able to cash in on enough runs to really be competitive given their pitching staff.
Their catcher Salvador Perez is still having a really nice season hitting .281, but it is a little worrisome that the leader in average, home runs, and RBI for this team is coming from their catcher. This team has the 10th best average out of all the teams in the league, but they have not been able to convert enough with runners in scoring position.
The Royals will roll with Brad Keller in this spot, and he should be able to build off of the momentum he built in his last start, as he went 6.1 strong innings against the Minnesota Twins allowing only 2 runs.
The Indians have continued their brutal losing streak last time out by losing to the Tampa Bay Rays by a score of 4-0 and the fact that they did not score a run in that last contest shows how bad this team has been with the bat lately, as this whole batting lineup has really gone cold.
This Cleveland team is actually quite good, and they have done very well to hold on to a .500 record, and you could really see them going on a run if they get remotely healthy, as their injured list is massive at this point.
Cleveland also does not have a listed pitcher here, so it will be interesting to see who they go with here, as it would not surprise me if Brady Keller has a strong outing here, so the Indians will need to field one of their better arms here.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The number one thing I see turning this Indians season around is getting healthy, and they are not going to get healthy overnight, so I like the Royals at a nice price here especially since I like this Royals offense going forward, as they should be able to score more runs given their overall lineup.
