The Rangers will send Shelby Miller to the mound on Tuesday, trying to snap a four-game losing streak that has seen them lose each game by more than the day before.
Texas didn’t win once in Houston and lost the finale by a score of 15–5. Miller probably isn’t the answer to the woes. He’s just 1–2 on the season with a 66 ERA+. He gives up double-digits hits per nine innings and walks more (6.8 per nine) than he strikes out (6.2). That equates to a WHIP of nearly two.
Meanwhile, Nomar Mazara and Ronald Guzman, both of whom were teenage prospects at the same time in Texas’ system, aren’t really hitting this season. Mazara has an OPS+ of just 80, while Guzman’s is just into triple-digits, despite a .189 batting average. Without those guys mashing, Texas’ lineup has its limits.
Kansas City Royals
But if Miller isn’t Texas’ answer to snap a losing skid, the Royals may be. Kansas City win the first game against Philadelphia this weekend but lost the last two by a dozen runs, combined.
The Royals have not won many series this season. They have a pair of two-game winning streaks and one season-high runs of three.
Third baseman Hunter Dozier leads the team in most offensive categories, including OPS+ (175) and Wins Above Replacement (2.0). He was the eighth overall pick in 2013 out of Stephen F. Austin, where he played shortstop. He, along with Adalberto Modesi, make up an intriguing left side of the infield in the future.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: over.
It’s a big total but without reason. Miller is toast and the Rangers can rake a little bit, though Duffy could neutralize the lefty power. I lean KC.
