Welcome back, Royals, Miguel Sano is waiting for you

Miguel Sano has been killing Royals pitching this season.
Author:

Miguel Sano hasn't driven in a run since May 12. That was like ... a whole week ago.

Expect this mini problem to go away starting Friday night against the Royals. Sano has completely ripped Kansas City pitching this season to the tune of 9-for-18 with 3 homers, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 14 RBI and 9 runs in just five games.

Statistically, that's for 30% of his homers (10), 46.7% of his RBI (30) and 33.3% of his runs (27).

For the season, Sano ranks high in all of the important offensive statistics.

  • 7th in AL in HR (10)
  • 3rd in AL in RBI (30)
  • 7th in AL in R (27)
  • 2nd in AL in BB (28)
  • 3rd in AL in SLG (.626)
  • 3rd in AL in OPS (1.050)

Anyway, this is nothing more than a public service announcement for Kansas City's starting pitchers this series: Nate Karns, Ian Kennedy and Jason Hammel.
