Mike – Ian Kennedy
I feel that this free agent signing will be helped out pitching at Kauffman Stadium.
Sure he pitched at Petco but he’ll be backed by a great defense.
David – Yordano Ventura
You’ll see him in a lot of these. I think this is the year he harnesses his stuff and become the Royals ace.
John – Yordano Ventura
Ventura is poised for a breakout year this season after his strong performance down the stretch.
He finished August and September with an 8-1 record and 3.26 ERA.
Ryan – Yordano Ventura
I wanted to put Wade Davis here for fun, because he’s nearly won double-digit games in back-to-back seasons as a reliever. However, I went with Ventura, staying with my predictability.
Based on what we saw from Ventura in the last third of 2015, he seems poised for a breakout. With stuff as good as his, consistency and health are going to be huge. If he pitches anything like he did during his last 11 starts last season, he’ll win more than a few games.
