The Royals will continue the post-Broxton era in the bullpen, after sending their closer (and his expiring contract) to the Reds for a pair of minor league arms on Tuesday. Kansas City looks to put back-to-back wins together over the Indians with the help of Luis Mendoza, who's been shaky throughout the season. Mendoza went only five-plus innings in his last start, and allowed four runs on nine hits in a Royals loss. Mendoza had three walks and only one strikeout in the game.
