    Royals' Brad Keller: Best start of season

    Brad Keller allowed a run on four hits and four walks while striking out nine over 7.2 innings in a no-decision versus Cleveland on Friday.This was Keller's best start of the year even though he issued four or more free passes for the sixth time in his last 10 outings. Despite his strong work on the mound, the right-hander exited with the game tied at 1-1, assuring he'd go a seventh straight start without a win. The 25-year-old now has a 5.97 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 83:48 K:BB across 95 innings. He'll look to take some positive momentum into the second half of the season, although he'll likely need to trim his 4.5 BB/9 rate to find more success.

    Royals' Brad Keller: Unimpressive in loss

    Brad 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.
