After Keller, Royals hope to hit again on Rule 5 picks

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) As a rule five draft selection, Brad Keller was a surprising success with Kansas City last season.

The rebuilding Royals are hoping to do it again with Chris Ellis and Sam McWilliams.

Kansas City plucked Keller from the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the right-hander rewarded them with a stellar rookie season, going 9-6 with a 3.08 ERA while making 20 starts. He was named the organization's pitcher of the year, and he's going into 2019 as the team's No. 2 starter behind Danny Duffy.
