Paulino Liking New League & Return to Rotation
Since 2004 alumni Felipe Paulino was traded from the Rockies to the Royals, he has been having solid starts. In the month of June, he has an ERA of 2.78 in 4 starts (22 2/3 IP) and opponents are only hitting .224 against him. This improvement not only mirrors his move from the NL to the AL but it marks his return from the pen to the starting rotation. Paulino has always been viewed as a player with great potential, maybe this is the environment he needed to show that. We will keep watching.
