Kansas City Royals
The Royals send Homer Bailey to the mound against Michael Wacha in the first game of this two-gamer on Tuesday. They will get Wednesday off to travel home before welcoming the Yankees.
Brad Keller’s ERA has gone up by more than two runs over his last five starts. His ERA sat at 2.64 through his first five outings; now, it’s 4.66.
He’s not an easy out for an offense, though. Keller has gone at least five innings in each of his ten starts this season, including the last time out against the Angels, when he actually got two outs in the sixth despite giving up seven hits and five walks.
Kansas City may be only better than Baltimore in the Americana League (and only by one game) but it has some decent players. Four guys have at least 1.2 Wins Above Replacement. None of them are pitchers, however.
St. Louis Cardinals
Adam Wainwright hasn’t been better than league-average since 2015, and really 2014 because he suffered a major injury in ’15. Still, he’s managed to be everything the Cardinals were hoping he would be this season.
He’s not quite what CC Sabathia is to the New York Yankees because Sabathia is still pitching at a high level but Wainwright signed on as a cheap option to eat innings and be an important clubhouse figure.
He’s had two rough starts in three this month (eleven runs in nine combined innings) with a nice little gem in-between. On the season, however, he’s made nine starts and averaged more than five innings per with an ERA in the mid-fours.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction: over.
The Cardinals are going to get to Keller, who Ned Lost is almost forced to leave in longer than most other pitchers in most other spots should stay in the game. If you’re looking for a pitcher to give up at least a couple to an opposing offense, however bad, Wainwright is a decent bet.
