Sox bats warming up and looked good against the Bronx Bombers. Going home up against basically a double A team, I see no reason why they bats don't shine in this series opener. Duda and Merrifield have hit Santana well in their careers while Gordon has 2 HR's 3 doubles and 8 walks against him. I like the Over on this one as neither pitcher is elite.60%

Guaranteed Rate Field, Chicago, Illinois
Declaring this a pivotal series for the Royals so early in the 2019 campaign would be a bit of an exaggeration. But just 15 games in and after suffering through ten straight losses, Kansas City has a chance to climb back into the running of the Central before we hit May. Coming off a three-game sweep over then front running Cleveland, the next three pitchers the Royals face have ERA's of 17.

After a fun weekend on multiple levels, the Chicago White Sox come back home from New York for Jackie Robinson Day.
Speaking of Tim Anderson, he has been on fire this season. He leads all of baseball in batting average (.429), is sixth in wRC+ (203), and ninth in wOBA (.463). He has been nothing short of spectacular at the plate so far, though it has been heavily influenced by a .500 BABIP and an increased contact rate.
On the pitching side, Carols Rodon has been great so far this season. Per FanGraphs, he is tied for first in the majors WAR (1.

Royals Review: Chicago White Sox Series Preview: The windy city is calling
The Royals get their second crack at the White Sox after the Royals took two of three to open the season. Since then neither team has exactly done well, but both did win a series against a 2018 playoff team, so they're coming in hot. The White Sox lineup has been a bit of a stars and scrubs situation with Yoan Moncada, Tim Anderson and Eloy Jimenez hitting quite well and others such as Daniel Palka, Wellington Castillo, Yolmer Sanchez and Jose Abreu not so much. Their rotation has been disappointing outside of Carlos Rodon, and their bullpen has a couple bright spots, but has also had its issues.
