The Kansas City Royals have more or less given up on the season already and they enter Monday as losers of nine of their last 10. This looks like as good of a spot as any for Toronto to give 22 year old right-hander Sean Reid-Foley his big leagues debut.
Reid-Foley has been rather dominant in the minors, going a combined 12-4 with a 2.98 ERA in 23 starts for Double-A New Hampshire and Buffalo and I think he’ll make the most of his chance to play with the big boys.
The Blue Jays scored a total of 31 runs in a 3-0 sweep against the Royals back in April and KC righty Brad Keller (4-5, 3.57 ERA) was tagged with one run on four hits in 0 2/3 innings out of the bullpen.
Keller is 3-4 with a 4.09 ERA in 12 turns since becoming a starter in late May, but Royals are just 4-8 on those games and he has given up six runs on 12 hits with six walks in 12 1/3 innings in his last two starts, both Royals losses.
KC is a pathetic 16-42 at home, Blue Jays are 19-7 in their last 26 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400.
Free pick on Toronto Blue Jays.
