Kansas City Royals SP Sean O’Sullivan will try to beat the New York Yankees for the second time in five days, once as a member of the Angels (in his first major league start) and now, through a trade, as a Kansas City Royal. In his first start against NY, he went 6 innings, gave up 2 runs on 2 hits, 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts.
Our Instinct: O’Sullivan has good stuff. A 93-94 mph heater, a curveball, and a decent change-up. We like his chances for winning ballgames a whole lot better as an Angel obviously, but watch this kid. With another solid outing against an offensive behemoth like New York, this kid will be on everyone’s radar.
