Kansas City Royals
When all three last-place teams in the National League reach sixty wins, the Royals might have fifty. They are closer to fifty than the Marlins and and Padres but the Royals just won six in a row!
They were blown out on Tuesday and you’ve got to figure something similar will happen in this game: Brad Keller against Corey Kluber. Woof.
I don’t know much about Yandy Diaz but I noticed him on base a lot last night and then he hit his first career home run in the fifth inning of a blowout.
He was a rookie last season and put up a sub-80 OPS+ in over 150 at-bats. The OPS is still lacking this season because he doesn’t yet hit for power and doesn’t really take walks, but he’s hitting .305, whatever that’s worth in today’s game.
Twenty-Seven years old from Cuba, he’s got the build to hit for power, if it comes, and he’s probably got to if he wants to stick around as a DH.
Josh Donaldson will be eligible to come off the DL on September 11 but the Indians won’t be in any rush. Considering he’s already rehabbing and rehabbing it well (he hit a grand slam this weekend), it may not be unrealistic to expect him in an Indians uniform next week.
After that, the focus shifts to Trevor Bauer and Andrew Miller. The Indians won’t win as many games as they did last season; heck, they may not win ninety but it hardly seems to matter.
If they can get the horses back and Donaldson is not even great, but simply an improvement, the Tribe has as good a chance as any.
