The Royals and Yankees get set to begin a weekday series in the Bronx on Monday.
The Royals fell in 2 of 3 to the Indians over the weekend, while the Yankees failed to sweep the Red Sox with a loss on Sunday Night Baseball yesterday.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City was quick out of the gate, but they have came back to the pack here with their recent struggles.
The Royals split the first two games with the Indians over the weekend, but couldn’t hold onto a 3-1 lead on Sunday, as they fell 5-4 to lose the series. Kansas City has now lost 4 straight series’ as they are 3-9 in that stretch.
Trying to bounce back, Kansas City will send out RH Chris Young. The tall RH has been rocky all year long as he is just 1-4 with a 5.76 ERA on the season. Young does have a winning record at 3-2 in his career against New York, but has an inflated ERA that sits at 4.82 against them in his career.
The Yankees nearly got some revenge on the Red Sox as they had a chance to complete a sweep on Sunday.
However things did not go according to plan as they struggled against a knuckleballer, managing just 1 run which came with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th. The Yankees could get Jacoby Ellsbury back in the lineup, as he has been battling a hip injury that left him out two games.
The Yankees will send out RH Ivan Nova here, who will be making his first start of the season. Nova was placed in the bullpen, but because of an injury to CC Sabathia, he will get the nod here. Nova was 1-1 on the season with a 5 plus ERA in 6 relief appearances this season.

The Royals have been the ultimate fade with Chris Young on the hill.
He just doesn’t have good enough stuff as his pitches have been flat and he leaves a lot up in the zone.
