    • Keller (6-6) was tagged with the loss Monday against the Tigers after allowing seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and a walk while fanning five across five innings. Keller has given up at least five runs in back-to-back starts for the first time this season, and he seems to be trending in the wrong direction of late after posting a strong 3.86 ERA across six starts during May. The right-hander owns a 7.75 ERA in three outings this month, and he'll attempt to bounce back in his next start, scheduled for this weekend at home against the Red Sox.

    • Keller (6-5) took the loss versus the Angels on Wednesday. He allowed five runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out four in 5.1 innings. Keller kept the ball in the yard Wednesday, but the 12 baserunners he allowed represented a season high. The right-hander has been inconsistent throughout the year with a 5.75 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 59:33 K:BB across 61 innings. While he's upped his K/9 to 8.1, his BB/9 of 4.3 and HR/9 of 1.2 are also elevated compared to a 2.8 BB/9 and 0.3 HR/9 from last year. He also carries a .363 BABIP and 4.61 FIP, so some of Keller's struggles can be pinned on bad luck. He'll line up for a start versus Detroit next week.

    • Keller (6-4) allowed two runs on seven hits while striking out five over five innings as he took the win over the Twins on Friday. Keller was handed a commanding lead Friday after the Royals tallied nine runs on six hits, two errors and a walk in the first inning. The 25-year-old did surrender a solo home run to Jorge Polanco in the fifth but struck out at least five for the third consecutive start and didn't walk a batter for the first time all year. While Keller has been much better over the last month, he still owns a 5.50 ERA. The right-hander is expected to take the mound next week against the Angels in Los Angeles.

    • Keller (5-4) allowed three runs on five hits and four walks with six strikeouts in five innings in a win over Minnesota on Sunday. The right-hander continues to put too many batters on base, but Kansas City's offense outscored his struggles Sunday. Keller has won three of his last four starts. He's posted a 5.68 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 46:25 K:BB across 50.2 innings in 11 starts this season. The 25-year-old projects for a rematch with Minnesota in next weekend's series.

    • Keller (4-4) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits and four walks over seven innings in a 2-1 victory over the Rays. He struck out seven. The right-hander put together his longest start of the year, and only his third quality start in 10 trips to the mound. Keller appears to have turned a corner after his rough beginning to the campaign, as he boasts a 3.48 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 31:12 K:BB through 33.2 innings over his last six outings.
