KEY GAME INFORMATION
TORONTO: 2017: 76-86, fourth place.
MANAGER: John Gibbons (sixth season of second stint, 11th overall with Blue Jays).
ADDITIONS: LHP Jaime Garcia, OF Randal Grichuk, OF Curtis Granderson, RHP Seung-hwan Oh, INF Yangervis Solarte, INF Aledmys Diaz, RHP John Axford, RHP Tyler Clippard, INF Danny Espinosa, RHP Taylor Guerrieri, INF Gift Ngoepe, LHP Sam Moll, RHP Sam Gaviglio.
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Jose Bautista, OF Ezequiel Carrera, RHP Dominic Leone, LHP Brett Anderson, INF Darwin Barney, RHP Leonel Campos, OF Darrell Ceciliani, RHP Taylor Cole, INF Ryan Goins, C Raffy Lopez, RHP Tom Koehler, RHP Dominic Leone, C Miguel Montero, INF Rob Refsnyder, OF Michael Saunders, RHP Bo Schultz, RHP Cesar Valdez.
OUTLOOK: The powerful Yankees and reigning division champion Red Sox are considered playoff favorites in the AL East, so the expectation is the Blue Jays will be left to compete for the second wild card. If Donaldson and Smoak help the offense rebound from last season's injury-induced stumble, when Toronto scored an AL-low 693 runs, and the starting pitching stays strong and healthy, the Blue Jays might be able to mount a playoff push. Health concerns remain plentiful, however. Besides Tulowitzki's troublesome heel, Travis will need scheduled downtime to rest his surgically repaired right knee. Stroman was slowed by a sore shoulder in spring training, and Sanchez will be closely monitored after making just eight starts last year because of blister issues.
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.
PREVIEW
Royals getting look at Lopez vs. Blue Jays
 

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Marco Estrada is on the backend of his career at 35 years old.

He will become a free agent after this season, earning $13 million in 2018 with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jorge Lopez is 25 years and just beginning his career with the Kansas City Royals, who obtained him as part of the trade July 27 that sent third baseman Mike Moustakas to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The right-handers are the probable starters Wednesday for the third contest of a four-game series.

Lopez is replacing Burch Smith in the rotation. This will be Lopez's third big league start. He went 0-1 with a 2.75 ERA in 10 relief appearances earlier this season with the Brewers and was 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in two starts in 2015 with Milwaukee.

Estrada is 5-9 with a 4.84 in 20 starts. This will be his 271st career game and 182nd start. He has a 60-61 record with a 4.12 ERA since breaking into the majors in 2008 with the Washington Nationals.

Estrada took a no-hitter into the seventh inning in an Aug. 4 start at Seattle before giving up a one-out double to Mitch Haniger. That was the only hit he allowed before being removed after issuing a walk to lead off the eighth.

In his last start on Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays, Estrada took the loss, allowing five runs on five hits and two walks over 5 1/3 innings, while striking out six.

Estrada is 1-2 with a 3.26 ERA in three career starts against the Royals, allowing seven runs on 17 hits and five walks with 11 strikeouts over 19 1/3 innings. He is 0-2 with a 3.29 ERA in two starts at Kauffman Stadium.

Smith failed to make it out of the second inning in a 7-0 loss Friday to the St. Louis Cardinals. He permitted five runs on six hits, including homers to Matt Carpenter and Paul DeJong, and was pulled after 46 pitches in 1 2/3 innings.

He is 1-1 with a 6.82 ERA in 16 home appearances, but has a 7.87 ERA in two Kauffman Stadium starts. He is going to be the bullpen.

The Royals want to take a look at Lopez the final six weeks of the season.

"We want to see what we have," Royals manager Ned Yost said.

He pointed out Lopez is coming off a good outing. In his last start for the Storm Chasers, Lopez pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings, while allowing three hits, walking one and striking out seven.

The Blue Jays beat the Royals 6-5 on Tuesday night to even the series at 1-1. Toronto had scored only four runs in their previous four games. Kevin Pillar hit a two-run go-ahead homer with two out in the eighth. Danny Jansen hit a solo shot, his first big league home run in his second game.

Blue Jays starter Ryan Borucki was pulled after four innings with a blister on his right foot, but is hopeful he would not miss his next start.

The Blue Jays (54-65) are 11-13 since the All-Star break.

The Royals lost for the 10th time in 12 games and are 2-6 on this homestand with two games remaining. They are 47 games below .500 at 36-83 with 43 games left.
