Kansas City Royals
In the recent trends you will see that the Royals have owned Tampa Bay of late. That’s the first time I’ve actually eluded to the recent trends.
This year has been a step in the wrong direction for the Royals after years of steady progress, though. Kansas City lost a rubber match with the Indians, 1-0, on Sunday to drop to an even 10-20. The Royals managed four runs in their three versus Cleveland over the weekend.
The offense has been a huge problem but Nate Karns is coming off six one-hit innings against the White Sox, his finest performance in a Kansas City uniform.
It was also his first win of the season. He tries to even his record with another one on Monday.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa also finished its weekend with a low-scoring, one-run loss, 2-1 to the Blue Jays. Alex Cobb was terrific but allowed an eighth inning solo shot to Darwin Barney that made it 2-1.
Blake Snell has gone exactly five innings in his last four starts. It might not sound good but I wonder, why?
Snell has been effective in those five innings. He has a 3.45 ERA and allows less than a hit per inning.
The walks are troubling though, 21 of them in 31 innings. Compare those numbers to just 27 strikeouts and I’m a little more skeptical about Snell’s future outlook.
