Kansas City Royals
Brad Keller led the Royals with a 140 ERA+ in 140 innings as a rookie last season and he’s off to an even better start this year.
All of Keller’s peripherals have improved through thirty innings this season, with the exception of his walks, which have shot up to five per nine innings after he finished 2018 at just 3.2 per nine.
He’ll make his return from the negligible five-game starting pitcher suspension for intentionally drilling Tim Anderson of the White Sox in his last start. He’s already hit three batters, which leads the league.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay lost its third consecutive close game at home to an AL East opponent on Saturday, 6–5. It was the second win in as many games in the series for Boston, which goes for a sweep on Sunday.
The Red Sox didn’t waste much time before breaking it open. Charlie Morton walked Jackie Bradley Jr. and hit Sandy Leon with a pitch to bring in a run. Even worse, it brought Andrew Benintendi to the plate and he hit a grand slam.
The Rays came all the way back to tie it in the eighth, when Yandy Diaz homered. Tampa also hit four triples but Boston got the last laugh with a Benintendi sac fly in the top of the ninth against Jose Alvarado.
Perhaps most concerning for Tampa Bay is that Ji-Man Choi left the game in the sixth with a calf injury after legging out one of those triples. After posting a 142 OPS+ in nearly 200 plate appearances for Tampa Bay last season, Choi isn’t far off the pace just about 75 PAs into this season.
