Paxton had an okay bounce-back game against Minnesota after giving up six earned in his first outing against Cleveland. He was able to go five innings giving up two earned on four hits while striking out seven and walking one.
It was good to see him only give up one walk after giving up four in his first start. The home runs however, have been an issue as he’s already given up three and this may stem from the fact that he has only been inducing ground balls 21.4% of the time, which is off from his career average of 48.3%.
Not too much has been going on with Seattle’s lineup slashing .259/.339/.335 to go along with nine extra-base hits and 19 RBI in the last week. They haven’t been drawing many walks with 24, but they have done a solid job not striking out as they only have 61 strikeouts.
Kansas City Royals
Duffy took his second straight loss against the Cleveland Indians as he was able to go 5.2 innings giving up three earned off of three hits while striking out three and walking three. Despite the first inning where he gave up all three earned runs, it was a nice bounce-back outing after giving up five earned runs in his first start.
Duffy’s current BB/9 of 4.66 isn’t what were used to, but I have faith that that number will regress around his career average of 3.20 BB/9. It is more concerning that he has been pretty fortunate owning a .241 BABIP, yet he has a high 6.96 FIP. So even though he has been lucky, he is still struggling to keep base runners off of home plate.
Kansas City’s lineup has been really dismal in the last week slashing .238/.301/.331 while they have 10 extra-base hits and 14 RBI. Ten of their RBI came in one game. I’ll give them some credit though, they don’t strike out as they have the least amount of strikeouts in the league with 48.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: Paxton rebounds while Seattle’s lineup does just enough to collect the win
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Seattle ML
I expect Paxton to finally put it all together against Kansas City’s weak lineup. Duffy should be due for a bounce-back game as well, but he still has a weak lineup backing him up.
