Kansas City Royals
Jason Hammel was a luxury for the Cubs last season and as it usually goes, the most superfluous of those luxuries eventually make their way out the door once a team becomes a champion.
Plus the Royals badly needed to replace Yordano Ventura, who I failed to acknowledge on Opening Day along with Jose Fernandez. We miss you, Yordano.
We get to see just how great the Chicago effect is. Hammel goes back to the AL where he enjoyed mild success with Tampa Bay, Baltimore and Oakland before enjoying three of his finest seasons in the NL with the Cubs.
The Royals offense has been chilly to start the season but has the chance to get on track against Kyle Gibson on Thursday afternoon.
You may be surprised to know Gibson has made 88 starts over the last three seasons. I didn’t realize Gibson had been in the rotation quite that long, but it’s easy to overlook things in the Twins pitching staff.
Gibson will pitch 2017 on a one-year deal that he signed in the offseason.
The Twins are in a position to sweep thanks to the 16 runs scored by their offense in the first two games of this series.
Eduardo Escobar homered on Wednesday and Miguel Sano has five RBIs in the first two games.

Free Kansas City vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction: Royals avoid the sweep.
They had a small pitching edge in game two. They have an even bigger on in game three. No one likes to start out the year by getting swept, especially against the worst team in baseball.
