Kansas City Royals

The Kansas City Royals (19-52) find themselves in a rut, having dropped 11 of their last 12 games and holding the second-worst overall record in all of baseball. Their struggles were evident in their recent 5-2 home loss to the Los Angeles Angels, although third baseman Maikel Garcia had a standout performance, collecting three hits and crossing the plate twice.
The Royals’ pitching has been a significant concern, particularly with their 32-year-old right-hander, Jordan Lyles, who has endured a forgettable season. Lyles, sporting an 0-11 record and a disappointing 6.89 ERA, has become a reliable target for bettors looking to fade Kansas City. In fact, those who have bet against the Royals when Lyles takes the mound have a perfect 14-0 record this season. Lyles has struggled in his recent outings, surrendering ten runs over his last 13 innings pitched.

Kansas struggles offensively

Offensively, the Royals have had their fair share of struggles as well. Over their last three games, they scored just 12 runs, and in seven of their last 11 games, they scored three or fewer runs. A lack of consistent run production has hurt the team, as evidenced by their seven-game losing streak when scoring three or fewer runs. However, they do have some bright spots in their lineup. Bobby Witt Jr. leads the team with 70 hits and 35 RBI, while Salvador Perez and Vinnie Pasquantino have combined for an impressive 124 hits and 63 RBI.
Looking ahead, Jordan Lyles will take the mound for the Royals. Unfortunately, his season struggles continue, as he remains winless at 0-11 with a high 6.89 ERA and 59 strikeouts. However, Lyles has a glimmer of hope against the upcoming opponent, the Detroit Tigers. Throughout his career, Lyles has recorded a 1-2 record with a 3.45 ERA and 28 strikeouts when facing the Tigers.

Players to watch: Bobby Witt Jr. SS (GP 70, AB 287, R 40, H 70, 2B 10, 3B 4, HR 11, RBI 35, TB 121, BB 15, SO 62, SB 21, AVG 0.244, OBP 0.283, SLG 0.422, OPS 0.704, WAR 1, Salvador Perez C (GP 64, AB 250, R 33, H 67, 2B 14, 3B 0, HR 14, RBI 37, TB 123, BB 8, SO 61, SB 0, AVG 0.268, OBP 0.303, SLG 0.492, OPS 0.795, WAR 0.8

Detroit Tigers

The Detroit Tigers, currently sitting three games below .500 at home and trailing by five games in the AL Central Division race, come off a positive note with a 6-4 road victory against the Minnesota Twins. First baseman Spencer Torkelson and outfielder Kerry Carpenter played pivotal roles in the win, each hitting home runs during a five-run fifth inning. Third baseman Andy Ibanez also contributed with three hits and an RBI, helping the Tigers improve their overall record to 30-40.
Rookie right-hander Reese Olson will take the mound for the Tigers, making his third career start in the major leagues. Olson has faced challenges, as evidenced by his 0-2 record and a 6.08 ERA. He struggled in his previous outing against the Atlanta Braves, allowing seven runs (six earned) in just ten outs recorded during a 10-7 loss at home.

Detroit improves their offensive gameplay.

On the offensive side, the Detroit Tigers have shown signs of life recently. They have scored 13 runs in their last three games and have scored four or more runs in six of their last seven games. When the Tigers score four or more runs, they have split their last eight games. Javier Baez leads the team with 62 hits and 35 RBI, while Spencer Torkelson and Riley Greene have combined for an impressive 121 hits and 52 RBI.
Reese Olson will look to improve his season statistics by taking the mound for the Tigers. So far, he holds an 0-2 record with a 6.08 ERA and 11 strikeouts. This will be Olson’s first career game against the Kansas City Royals.

Players to watch: Javier Baez SS (GP 67, AB 265, R 28, H 62, 2B 9, 3B 3, HR 5, RBI 35, TB 92, BB 11, SO 64, SB 6, AVG 0.234, OBP 0.273, SLG 0.347, OPS 0.62, WAR 0.6, Spencer Torkelson 1B (GP 69, AB 260, R 31, H 61, 2B 17, 3B 0, HR 8, RBI 34, TB 102, BB 30, SO 68, SB 2, AVG 0.235, OBP 0.318, SLG 0.392, OPS 0.71, WAR 0
