Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

It will be Triston McKenzie getting the call for the Cleveland Guardians' second game in Kansas City against the Royals, and he will be looking to have a better start than his last two. McKenzie has experienced some trouble as of late when it comes to pitching more than a few innings, with his previous two starts being 3 and 2.1 innings. The Guardians are also going to need him to be more effective than he has been for the majority of the month of June, as he has allowed 14 runs in 16 innings, hardly an acceptable rate of letting runs come across to score.

This will be the second time McKenzie has faced the Royals this season, giving up five runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings earlier this month. While the five runs allowed is far from ideal, McKenzie did strike out seven batters and pitched well enough for the Guardians to win that contest.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

Kansas City will counter with Alec Marsh, a pitcher who is really all over the place when it comes to his starts. Marsh allowed nine runs on 14 hits across 10 innings in his first two starts this month, before throwing 7 innings of one hit baseball against the New York Yankees. This was immediately followed up by a seven run implosion in 3 innings against the Oakland Athletics of all teams before settling down a bit and allowing three runs on eight hits in 5.2 innings against the Texas Rangers. It really is anyone's best guess as to what version of Marsh will show up on any given day.
