Kansas City Royals
The Royals are not the Cinderella team who won the World Series just a couple seasons ago.
Eric Hosmer has not developed into the power hitter many projected, though he does provide a solid average at .309 this year.
Mike Moustakas has provided the power with 15 homers to lead the club.
Eric Skoglund will garner his third career start in a favorable matchup versus the light-hitting Padres team. In his two career starts, the 24-year old lefty has a 1-1 record with a 4.32 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 7 Ks.
San Diego Padres
The Padres as 23-37 on the season and last in their division as they continue to build towards the future. Rookie Manuel Margot was on a nice pace but is currently sidelined with injury.
Fellow rookie, Hunter Renfroe, has provided solid production with 13 homers and 29 RBIs, sitting second in each category amongst the club.
Jhoulys Chacin is a placeholder in the rotation for now, holding a 5.65 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP across 12 starts this season.
The Padres pitching staff is hands down the worst in baseball and will look drastically different when they’re ready to contend.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction:
While Kansas City has been terrible on the road this year, they should be able to pick up win #10 while visiting against a bad Padres team. Chacin doesn’t pose much of a threat on the mound despite KC’s struggles against lefties.

Skoglund had pitched well enough in his first two started that he should have the edge over Chacin, where we know what we’re getting at this point.
