Kansas City Royals
The Royals took to a bad start this season and they are no doubt one of the worst teams with a miserable 6-20 record. Kansas City dropped their opener against the Twins with a 7-1 final score. The Royals will turn in Jordan Lyles as their starter in this game. Lyles is holding a 0-4 record with an ERA of 4.88 and only 23 Ks in 31.1 innings pitched. It’s been a terrible start for Lyles and he has been struggling to make ends meet from last season.
Players to watch: Bobby Witt Jr. SS (GP 26, AB 103, R 13, H 25, 2B 3, 3B 2, HR 4, RBI 9, TB 44, BB 6, SO 22, SB 5, AVG 0.243, OBP 0.284, SLG 0.427, OPS 0.712, WAR 0.2, Vinnie Pasquantino 1B (GP 26, AB 92, R 12, H 26, 2B 7, 3B 0, HR 5, RBI 8, TB 48, BB 12, SO 14, SB 0, AVG 0.283, OBP 0.371, SLG 0.522, OPS 0.893, WAR 0.7
The Minnesota Twins are coming into this game after winning their last series against the Yankees. The Twins are holding a 15-11 record on the season and are ahead of the Guardians. The Twins will turn in Pablo Lopez as their starter in this game. Lopez is holding a 1-2 record on the season with an ERA of 3.00 and 39 Ks in 30 innings pitched. This is a good opportunity for Lopez to pick up a win against the struggling Kansas offense.
