10-unit Play Take #970 Kansas City Royals over Minnesota Twins (8:10pm EST) There couldn't be a better fit for Chris Young than the Kansas City Royals. The soft-tossing, pitch-to-contact style that Young has survived with plays right into the hands of the best defense in baseball. The Royals just love snagging grounders and chasing down fly balls, and they happen to rate as the best in the game at doing just that. Young doesn't have pretty peripheral numbers, but he comes in with a 2.71 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 69.2 innings of work. While he isn't likely to sustain numbers quite that good, Young will continue to flourish in a Royals uniform. He'll face a bad Minnesota Twins lineup that is 11th in the AL in OPS. The Twins are in a tailspin as they're 8-14 over their last 22 games overall. Everyone knew that they were playing over their heads during the first two months of the season, but this team is even worse than that. Minnesota is right there with the White Sox as the worst team in the American League when you starting breaking down all of the numbers. They have a bad starting rotation, a below average lineup and play horrible defense. Add it all up, and this team is going to continue to slide for the rest of the 2015 season. Take Kansas City at a very reasonable price today.
