Welcome to the continuation of Kings of Kauffman‘s 2020 KC Royals season previews. Leading up to spring training, we’ll be breaking down 30 different Royals. Our analysis will include what they accomplished last season, what to expect this season, along with any other information pertinent to the player. Today’s subject: Brad Keller.
Keller quickly earned the nickname “Stellar Keller” for the work he did in his rookie season. In 2018, the right-hander went 9-6 while spinning an impressive 3.08 ERA. He was one of the best first-year pitchers in the majors and as a former Rule 5 draft pick, he exceeded expectations and created a ton of buzz as 2019 approached.
