Tigers, Royals put young pitchers in the spotlight

If the Kansas City Royals are going to have success with their historic 2018 draft class, they need to figure out what they have.

The Royals selected four college starting pitchers in the first 40 picks of that draft, and all four have reached the majors. Two made their debut last season -- Brady Singer and Kris Bubic. The other two -- Daniel Lynch, who will get the start for the Royals on Sunday, and Jackson Kowar -- debuted this season and struggled.

On Saturday, another pitcher from that 2018 class -- Casey Mize, the No. 1 overall selection by the Detroit Tigers -- will take center stage when he starts against the Royals in Kansas City. Mize (5-5, 3.44 ERA) will square off against the Royals' Carlos Hernandez (1-1, 4.91).
