The Yankees and Royals continue their weekday 4 game series, as both teams have dug themselves an early hole here in the beginning of the season.
The Yankees took the series opener, as they try to make it two in a Tuesday before heading into this one.
Kansas City Royals
The defending champs will have their work cut out for them early on here in the 2016.
Kansas City currently sits 7.0 games back of the red hot White sox in the AL Central division and have gotten some very inconsistent starting pitching here in the early on.
The Royals saw some of that out of Monday’s loser Chris Young, who continues to struggle at the back end of that rotation.
Here, they’ll send out Yordano Ventura, who is now 2-2 on the season after dropping back to back games.
Ventura fell to Seattle and Cleveland, both on the road, as he allowed 5 runs in each of the starts. Both of his wins this year have came in Kansas City.
The Yankees are in last place right now, but nobody has really taken off in the AL East.
New York sits just 6.0 games back and despite losing Alex Rodriguez to a hamstring injury, the offense is certainly stepping up.
They turned in 6 runs in the series opener and have won 3 of 4 after taking 2 of 3 against Boston over the weekend.
With how inconsistent this Royals staff has been though, taking the first two games prior to this one isn’t out of reach by any means.
The Yankees will send out Michael Pineda here, who they have to get going.
The RH is just 1-3 on the year with an ERA that sits at 5.73. Pineda hasn’t won since his first start of the year and earned a ND last time out allowing just 2 runs in 6.0 innings against Boston.
