The Kansas City Royals continue their road trip as they travel to Chicago to kick off a three-game series against the White Sox. The Royals come into this series in a very uncomfortable position as they are currently sitting in last place of the American League Central division. On the other hand, the White Sox have won 6 out of their last 10 games and they are just 2 games behind the Minnesota Twins, the team that is leading the Central standings.
The Royals approach the trade deadline thinking about the future and most likely sellers rather than buyers. They started the selling when the team transferred outfielder Andrew Benintendi to the Yankees before facing them in a four-game series at Yankee Stadium. They lost the first 3 games of the series and everyone was expecting a clean sweep, but instead, the Royals picked up a 8-6 win, preventing the sweep.
For the White Sox, it’s a completely different story as they appear to be heating up at the right time as the team has won 10 of their last 15 games and are sitting above .500 for the first time this season. It’s going to be interesting to see if the White Sox get involved in the market as they could surely use some help with the starting five and with bench help.
Michael Kopech will kick things off for the Chicago White Sox, who is making his 19th start of the season. He is carrying a 4-6 record with a 3.16 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP over 88.1 innings pitching while striking out 78. He’ll be facing Brad Keller, who is currently holding a 5-11 record with a 4.18 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 107.2 innings pitched while striking out 73.
