Both of these teams are muddling along this season. Taking series like these will be the way to prove they are at least somewhat relevant.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals have dropped the first two games of this series and four in a row overall. They are just 13-15 on the road this season. I love the speed element that Adalberto Mondesi gives the team but he got hurt again over the weekend. The Royals cannot rely on power with Jorge Soler really struggling this season.
Brad Keller has not been posting great numbers but he is winning. His ERA is higher than it has even been in the Majors but the Royals have won his last five starts. They need him to be a streak buster in this spot.
The Royals have brought back familiar faces in their bullpen but this a group that looks well past its prime. It is average at best and you cannot really count on them the way you used to.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angles have played some better ball lately but they still find themselves in fourth place in the AL West. Mike Trout is still out and there is no specific timetable for his return. This team can score but needs to be better on the mound if they are going to ascend.
Griffin Canning is striking out more batters than he has in the Majors but everything else is off this season. He can’t keep the ball in the park and his walks are up, a dangerous combination.
The Angels’ bullpen is pretty pedestrian. It lacks big arms and has fared only so-so in the limited opportunities given to it by a substandard starting staff.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
This is a really tough call. I don’t see how we can back the Angels as such strong favourites and Keller has been a winner for the Royals this season whether he deserves to be or not. Classic baseball value play.
