The KC Royals have the best bullpen in all of Major League Baseball. Quite frankly, there is no debating that fact. But how many Royals relievers deserve to be on the American League All-Star team?

That also brings us to the starting rotation. In the first six weeks of the seasons, the starters left plenty to be desired. However, with Chris Young now in the mix, this last time through the rotation, they have been as good as any five in baseball.

Edinson Volquez’s two runs he surrendered Saturday in a 3-2, rain-shortened victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, were the only two give up by the starters during a current five-game win streak.

They also were two of three the entire pitching staff has yielded during that time.

Let’s take a look, in the third of our three-part all-star predictions series, at which KC Royals pitchers have a chance to land on the team.

As a reminder, all-star pitchers are not voted in by fans. Instead, they are chosen by players, coaches and managers from around the league. The Midsummer Classic managers are notorious for adding one of their pitchers to fill out the roster after the fans and players voted.

This year, that AL manager is Ned Yost.

Advantage, Royals.
