The Royals may be headed to their first 100-loss season in more than a decade, but there are one or two promising pieces in Kansas City. One silver lining for Ned Yost has been the unexpected rise of Keller, a rookie reliever-turned-starter.

The 23-year-old entered the pitching rotation at the end of May and hasn’t looked back, making 18 starts. In all but four of them, the right-hander gave up three runs or fewer.

Overall, he’s pieced together a very nice freshman campaign, going 8-6 with a 3.04 ERA. Perhaps the most impressive stat in Keller’s portfolio is the fact that he’s allowed just seven home runs in his 127.1 innings this season.
