MLB Friday Free Pick Selection

Rays at Royals 5:10 pm pacific

Over the last month, Royals and Rays hitters are striking out at a 25.3% and 24.3% clip respectively. Both teams find themselves in the top-10 of MLB in the aforementioned stat. -It’s not a good thing when your hitters are striking out, on average, once in every 4 at-bats. Rays SP Tyler Glasnow should rack up strikeouts as he carries an elite 19% swinging strike rate going into this matchup vs. an offensively challenged KC Royals. On the other side, Royals rookie SP Alec Marsh bounced back well from his first career start vs the Angels, where he struggled. In career start number 2 (a 5-inning performance on the road vs the Twins) Marsh looked better as he allowed only 2 earned runs and struck out 5 batters in as many innings. If Marsh can continue to improve on his command (he already has swing and miss stuff), he could do well at home vs Rays batters that strike out a lot. This matchup at Kaufmann Stadium looks like a pitchers duel.
