MLB FREE PICK: Take Kansas City. According to latest MLB trends, Toronto is 6-14 last 20 vs. a right-handed starter, 3-7 last 10 on grass, 5-12 last 17 as a dog, 6-16 last 22 during game 2 of a series and 3-10 last 13 road games. Kansas City is 6-2 last 8 as a favorite, 7-2 last 9 as a home favorite and 8-2 last 10 home games with the total set at 7.0-8.5.
Toronto (3-6, 6-3 O/U) send knuckleballer R. A. Dickey to the mound against the Royals. Last year's Cy Young Award winner is struggling make his adjustment from the National League to the American League. Dickey is 0-2 with a 8.44 ERA in his first two starts. Kansas City (6-3, 3-6 O/U) sends ace James Shields out for his home debut. He's 1-1 so far with a 3.75 ERA in his first two starts. The former Tamp Bay star won his last outing against Philadelphia, 9-8 as he allowed four runs on 10 hits with eight strikeouts. He'll perform better this time against Dickey, who will get roughed up by the likes of Billy Butler, Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas
