SEATTLE — When a team plays a first half like the Royals did, staggering to a record 31 games under .500, you try to mine the roster for positives.

And the one component that continues to impress as the All-Star break approaches is rookie Brad Keller.

He’d been a revelation in the Royals’ bullpen, posting a 2.01 ERA in 22 1/3 innings, and has continued to demonstrate poise since moving to the rotation at the end of May.
