This AL Central matchup includes two teams that have a stiff rivalry, dating back for some time.
The Kansas City Royals are the reigning World Series Champions, but haven’t started off where they ended last season.
The Minnesota Twins have not played well at all, they need to turn things around sooner rather than later.
Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals became champions last year by hitting mainly for power, and they look to do the same this year.
They are led in hitting by Eric Hosmer, who was a key part in the championship last season.
Hosmer is hitting .307 with 8 dingers and 21 runs batted in here still in May.
He is paced by Lorenzo Cain who is hitting .280 with 6 home runs and 23 runs batted in. Alex Gordon’s production seems to be down currently. He is only hitting .211 with 20 RBIs.
The Royals lineup from top to bottom will need to improve to be a contender again.
Dillion Gee will tone the bump in Minnesota. Gee is currently 1-1 on the year, as this is only his third start. Gee spent most of the season in the bullpen. He carries a 2.90 E.R.A and 26 strikeouts.
In his last start, Gee was victorious in Chicago against the Sox. He threw 5 innings of work, only giving up 1 run on 4 hits. Gee also struck out 5 and walked one.
The Minnesota Twins lineup has not looked pretty so far this year. They are led in hitting by Eduardo Nunez. Nunez is hitting .307 on the year with 8 doubles and 17 runs batted in.
The veteran Joe Maurer is up there in team average like he has been his whole career. Maurer is hitting .271 and has a team has .380 on base percentage. Miguel Sano leads this team in runs batted in with 19, he is also hitting for a .226 average.
The Twins put Tyler Duffey on the mound on Wednesday afternoon. Duffey is currently 1-3 on the year with a 3.30 E.R.A and 25 strikeouts. Duffey last toned the hill in a loss against the Toronto Blue Jays.
He threw 5.2 innings of work, giving up 6 earned runs on 9 hits. Duffey only struck out 2 batters, and walked one.
He looks to bounce back on Wednesday against the Royals.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
It would be really hard to rely on the Twins against any team this year.
The lineup they carry seems very ugly and inconsistent, and the pitching is not where it needs to be. I’m taking the Royals on the road here.
Look for the Royals to look to get a win in a game like this against the much weaker opponent.
