Chicago White Sox
The Sox are still in the midst of a deep rebuild and expect to be one of the many teams to not really compete in the AL Central this season.
Lucas Giolito, today’s starter, is part of that rebuild. He was brought over in the Adam Eaton trade with Washington last offseason. He was the best pitching prospect in Washington’s system, with two great pitches: a fastball and a curveball.
Giolito went six innings with just 89 pitches and gave up three runs in yesterday’s win. The Sox are 2–0 and go for the sweep on Sunday in KC.
24-year-old Reynaldo Lopez gets the start on Sunday. He has made 14 career starts at the big league level and has a 4.81 ERA.
So far, Chicago’s youngsters at the top of the lineup (Moncada, Garcia) are hitting. Those two, with Jose Abreu behind them, make for a bit of a fearful top of the lineup. This team will go as far as those three can take it.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City was pegged for 65 wins before the season started and it’s lost two in a row to start this year against another team that was expected to be just about as bad.
Jason Hammel used to be the fifth starter; now he’s the #3 guy because Jason Vargas and Mike Minor departed in free agency.
Lorenzo Cain is gone; Eric Hosmer is gone. There isn’t much left for the Royals and now, not even three years removed from a World Series Championship, the rebuild begins in Kansas City.
Mike Moustakas returns after smashing a Royals franchise record 38 homers a year ago. Salvador Perez is still there and Whit Merrifield is a nice piece as second base. That’s the core of the team but all three could be fire sale trade pieces in July if this thing is just going terribly.
