The Chicago White Sox have not been playing great lately, and they will once again have to bring their A game to beat this Royals team who has remained competitive despite not being very good in terms of their overall talent.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox have not been great in recent times only going 3-4 in their last 7 games, but that is not exactly putting pressure on this team, as they still maintain a 9 game lead over the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central
Chicago already had an excellent batting lineup who ranks in the top 5 of most of the more important offensive related categories, but they got a big boost getting Eloy Jimenez back from injury and he made an immediate impact hitting a home run against this Royals team on July 27th.
Carlos Rodon gets the call to the hill coming into this game with an 8-4 record and a 2.24 ERA, but he has not had much success against the Royals, as they are almost hitting .300 against him so this pitching matchup might be closer then it looks on paper.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals had their 6 game winning streak broken last time out against this White Sox team and the Royals are beginning to show that they are not nearly as bad as their record would suggest, as they have some solid players on paper.
Obviously this team is in full on rebuild mode, as they still remain 16 games back of the division lead, but they are showing that they have a decent foundation to build towards the future and it would not surprise me if some moves are made at the deadline.
The Kansas City Royals will go with Carlos Hernandez here who has a 5.72 ERA and a 1-1 record and although it is a super small sample size he has given up a .500 average against the White Sox so far.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
The Chicago White Sox batting lineup is looking awfully scary these days and I doubt they will encounter much resistance from Carlos Hernandez here, as he has not been at all good this year.
On the other side of the equation I can see the Royals being able to put up some runs too, as they have proven how good they can be against Rodon and they have an underrated batting lineup in general. The weather has also been very conducive to scoring lately with hot temperatures and humidty to keep the ball flying out of the park.
