The 26-year-old was dominant despite the loss, getting 26 swinging strikes in 5.2 innings. He has allowed two runs with a 21:2 K:BB over his last two starts.

Snell will start the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals after Tuesday's contest was postponed due to inclement weather, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. Snell was slated to toe the rubber Tuesday, but he'll get another day of rest before making his next start. Ryne Stanek will serve as the opener in Game 1.
Snell (2-2) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits with three strikeouts and two walks across 3.1 innings during a loss to the Royals on Wednesday. In his first game back since fracturing his toe, Snell wasn't particularly sharp and was lifted after 65 pitches. He had yielded one run and struck out 33 in his last 19 innings prior to the injury. His most impressive marks are his 0.92 WHIP, .204 batting average against and 39 strikeouts in 28.1 total innings this season. He should get another crack at the Royals in his next start on the road Tuesday, and Snell figures to be available for 80-plus pitches this time around.
