Kansas City Royals
The third game of four between the Royals and Yankees isn’t over as I write this, but the Yankees look like they will win their 27th of the season, ahead 2-0 in the bottom of the seventh.
That means our under is in good shape too. Luis Severino has completed all seven innings for New York, allowing three hits and no runs in just 92 pitches. The emergence of he, Jordan Montgomery and even Michael Pineda has completely changed the feeling around this Yankee starting rotation.
Miguel Almonte gets his second taste of big league baseball on Thursday in the series finale. He made nine relief appearances in 2015 and is back with KC to make his first career start. He’s got a career ERA in the mid-6’s and there aren’t many with much of an idea of what to expect.
New York Yankees
Assuming New York holds on for the last six outs, it will have a chance to take three of four from the Royals after losing the opener.
Masahiro Tanaka heads that list of emerging starters that I mentioned above. He’s in a different category as someone who isn’t surprising us with his good work this season.
Except for the fact that he has the highest ERA in the Yankees’ rotation (6.53). That number hasn’t been very good ever since he got lit up on Opending Day but the last two starts, both losses, have inflated it. His ERA has gone up by more than two full runs over his last two outings.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: Yankees win third in a row.
Not only do I predict the Yanks take care of business on Wednesday night, but that they do the same on Thursday. I’m personally not the least bit worried about Tanaka. In fact, I think good things are coming.
