Kansas City Royals

The Kansas City Royals have not reached the playoffs since their World Series win back in 2015 and look like they’re headed towards another losing season as the team sits last in the AL central with the fewest number of strikeouts in the Majors and are ranked among the bottom three in walk percentage.

Detroit Tigers

The Detroit Tigers, who have not made it to the playoffs since 2014, have had a disappointing start to the season so far. The team currently sits fourth in the AL Central, just one spot above the Kansas City Royals, and is averaging a mere 2.88 runs per game putting Detroit on pace for their sixth consecutive losing season. However, Tigers general manager Al Avila says that there is no scapegoat for the team’s poor performance.

“I’m as angry as anybody, more angry than anybody,” said Avila to reporters at The Athletic. “We’re all angry. And we’re all accountable — including the players. Right now, we’re re-evaluating and scrutinizing everything in the front office, player development, scouting, our staff and our players. When this happens, it’s not person or one department or one player. This is team-wide. We’re all obviously working hard to turn this around. And we will.”
