Dodgers Game Updates vs Royals: Bobby Miller Faces Rookie Making MLB Debut

The Dodgers roll into Kansas City coming off a series win in Colorado. They enter this new series with the Royals sitting in second place in the NL West, 2 games back of the Arizona Diamondbacks. LA’s pitching is set up for success as rookie Bobby Miller (3-1, 4.13) gets the ball for game one and is in the midst of a tough stretch for the first time as a big leaguer. He’s seemingly identified where things have gone a little wrong and should be in a better position to succeed in this series.

The Royals are sending rookie Alec Marsh (0-0, 0.00) to the mound who is making his MLB debut. He’s Kansas City’s number 14 prospect per MLB Pipeline.
