KEY GAME INFORMATION
KANSAS CITY: 2017: 80-82, third place.
MANAGER: Ned Yost (ninth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Jesse Hahn, CF Jon Jay, 1B Lucas Duda, RHP Wily Peralta, RHP Justin Grimm.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B Eric Hosmer, CF Lorenzo Cain, LHP Jason Vargas, RHP Joakim Soria, LHP Mike Minor, OF Melky Cabrera, LHP Scott Alexander, DH Brandon Moss, RHP Mike Morin, LHP Ryan Buchter, RHP Trevor Cahill.
OUTLOOK: This was supposed to be a rebuilding year in Kansas City, when most of the Royals' top players hit free agency en masse. With Moustakas and Escobar finding little market, both returned to Kansas City with prove-it contracts. That gives the Royals a fighting chance to stay competitive into July, and then all bets are off. But the reality is there are still far too many holes, both in the lineup and on the pitching staff, for the Royals to be considered contenders. They would do well to match the 80 wins they had last season, and could be a big seller at the July 31 trade deadline, which would allow them to replenish a shallow farm system and begin their rebuilding job in earnest.
CHI WHITE SOX: 2017: 67-95, fourth place.
MANAGER: Rick Renteria (second season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Miguel Gonzalez, C Welington Castillo.
SUBTRACTIONS: LHP Derek Holland, RHP Mike Pelfrey, RHP Al Alburquerque, RHP Jake Petricka, C Geovany Soto, OF-2B Alen Hanson, RHP Zach Putnam.
OUTLOOK: For a team with five straight losing seasons and a record that ranked among baseball's worst last year, the White Sox are generating plenty of buzz. That's because they're loaded with promising young players after going all-in on a rebuild prior to last season. The moves have sparked a belief that better days are ahead. Moncada and hard-throwing pitchers Giolito and Lopez showed promise in the majors last season. Right-hander Michael Kopech, outfielder Eloy Jimenez and outfielder Luis Robert are elite prospects on their way in the minors. Garcia, coming off a breakout season, is looking to prove he's not a one-hit wonder. Anderson hopes to bounce back from a trying season in which a close friend was shot to death. Abreu is back after the slugger was viewed as a potential trade candidate this winter. Left-hander Carlos Rodon is expected to be out until at least June following shoulder surgery last September. It's not clear when he'll be ready. Rodon also was sidelined at the start a year ago because of shoulder and biceps problems. The big question is whether he'll ever develop into the pitcher the White Sox envisioned when they drafted him with the No. 3 overall pick in 2014.
PREVIEW
White Sox, Royals toil to ease their pain
 

CHICAGO -- The Kansas City Royals have not captured a series victory since May and have lost 11 of their last 12 games.

Injuries have decimated the starting rotation, which took another hit Wednesday when right-hander Ian Kennedy was placed back on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Kennedy had just been activated off the disabled list on Tuesday after being sidelined since late June with another oblique strain. He pitched three innings and left with soreness in his side. A day later, he was back on the DL as the Royals prepare to begin a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox on Friday at Guaranteed Rate Field.

"All week, the last 10 days, everything has been getting better," Kennedy told reporters after the Royals' 9-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday. "It felt great all night, and then all of a sudden I felt something at the bottom of my ribs. ... It's just aggravating."

Tuesday's victory snapped a 10-game losing streak before Kansas City's bullpen failed to protect a lead on Wednesday as the Royals dropped yet another series. Mike Moustakas hit two home runs in the 8-5 loss after struggling from the plate throughout June.

The Royals hope to rebound against the White Sox. Right-hander Brad Keller hopes to do the same.

Keller (2-3, 2.52 ERA) will start for the Royals after struggling in his last outing. Keller allowed a career-high four runs and a career-high five walks in just 4 2/3 innings in a 15-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Keller will make his first start of his career against the White Sox, against whom he is 0-0 in three career relief appearances, all coming this season.

The White Sox snapped a six-game losing streak on Wednesday with a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. As the White Sox contemplate what moves they will make as the trade deadline approaches, they will try to get things figured out against the Royals.

First baseman Jose Abreu, who was named to the American League All-Star team as a starter earlier this week, has been in a slump of late, but like the rest of his teammates, is trying to stay positive.

Abreu is hitting .253 with 12 home runs, but he is batting just .178 with three homers since May 27. He went 0-for-8 with an RBI groundout in the two games against the Cardinals.

"He has had a tough stretch. These things happen," White Sox general manager Rick Hahn told reporters this week, according to the Chicago Tribune. "We've seen All-Star-caliber players such as him go through 20- or 30-game stretches where they haven't performed up to an All-Star level, which happens over the course of a long season.

"It's certainly nothing to be concerned about from our standpoint from a long-term performance standpoint."

James Shields, who could be among those being traded at the deadline, will start Friday against the Royals.

Shields (3-10, 4.53 ERA) is coming off a rough outing in which he allowed a season-worst eight earned runs and 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings during a 12-6 loss to the Houston Astros. Shields is 8-2 in 14 career starts against the Royals, and he beat Kansas City on March 29 this season, allowing five hits and four runs over six innings in a 14-7 victory.
