The Cleveland Guardians face the Kansas City Royals on Monday, April 11th, 2022 at Kauffman Stadium for game four of a four-game series.
The Guardians absolutely destroyed the Royals on Sunday afternoon in one of the biggest blowouts you will see all season long. Cleveland defeated KC by the final score of 17-3, and it was ugly from the very start. This was a Guardians team that only scored a combined one run in the first two games of the season, but managed to have a statement performance at the dish in the route win. The Guardians are now 1-2 this season as they earned their first victory of the year. Cleveland will look for another road win here and with a win, the Guardians and Royals will have split this four-game series at 2-2. These teams won't meet each other again until the very end of May in Cleveland.
The Cleveland Guardians are projected to bring right-hander Aaron Civale to the mound to face these Royals. In 2021, Civale was everything the Guardians would have hoped he would be. He pitched 124.1 innings, had a strong winning record of 12-5, and posted a solid ERA of 3.84 for a guy in the back end of the rotation. Civale does not earn a ton of strikeouts and may not have the best stuff, but he can certainly be a workhorse pitcher for Cleveland as the #4 or #5 in the rotation in 2022.
The Kansas City Royals are set to send right-hander Carlos Hernandez to the bump for this one. Hernandez struggled mightily in spring training as he pitched 7.1 innings, allowed five home runs, 12 earned runs, 15 hits, and had an ERA of 14.73. Hernandez did not pitch too poorly in Kansas City last season, but the awful spring training numbers do have me worried for him going into this regular season contest.
I think we are getting too good of a price to pass up with the team that just dismantled its opponent yesterday. The Royals had to use four arms out of the bullpen for an extended time and I think the Guardians can take advantage of weak starting pitching yet again here.
