KEY GAME INFORMATION
NY YANKEES: HITTING: Despite his decline from mediocrity into downright counter-productivity, SS DEREK JETER gets to hit atop the best lineup in baseball. Off an MVP-caliber season, OF CURTIS GRANDERSON is a true star. His average is mediocre, but his power is elite and the Yankees are letting him run when on base. After two years with a sub-.260 average, 1B MARK TEIXEIRA's talent seems to be fading. He still puts up huge power numbers playing in a bandbox. Coming off knee and thumb injuries, 3B ALEX RODRIGUEZ is a serious injury risk hitting in the middle of this lineup. 2B ROBINSON CANO will once again see as many RBI chances as anyone. He's been great in those situations the past two seasons. OFs NICK SWISHER and BRETT GARDNER offer power and SBs, respectively, though the Yankees may look to upgrade if they continue to post lackluster numbers. C RUSSELL MARTIN will get plenty of playing time now that Jesus Montero is in Seattle. Veteran slugger RAUL IBANEZ is the new DH in town, and will love hitting towards the short porch in right at Yankee Stadium.
STARTING PITCHING: CC SABATHIA struggled late last year and has logged a ridiculous number of innings over the past five years. He's a top-10 starter in the majors, but is starting to pass his prime. Newcomers HIROKI KURODA and MICHAEL PINEDA will both stabilize what was a shaky rotation last year. Kuroda, 37, posted a 3.07 ERA with the Dodgers and the 23-year-old Pineda has unlimited upside, fanning 173 batters in 171 innings with Seattle last season. IVAN NOVA benefitted from nearly nine runs of support per game. He keeps the ball down often enough to thrive in the Bronx, just without many strikeouts. PHIL HUGHES' stuff has regressed greatly since his days as a top prospect. He's trying to overcome conditioning problems this offseason. MANNY BANUELOS and DELLIN BETANCES are great prospects who may get a chance to start MLB games later this season.
RELIEF PITCHING: Trust MARIANO RIVERA to stay dominant until proven wrong. He was better in 2011 than he was in 2010 despite some velocity slippage. DAVID ROBERTSON has a firm hold on eighth-inning duties after an All-Star season. He's second in line for saves. RAFAEL SORIANO wasn't a total bust, as he did just fine after a rough April. He's settled into the seventh-inning role since Robertson is more trusted that he is. After Tommy John surgery, JOBA CHAMBERLAIN is aiming to be back this June. Middle reliever CORY WADE was reliable last year, and has a chance to rack up some vulture wins if he keeps going strong.
KANSAS CITY: HITTING: With Melky Cabrera gone, OF LORENZO CAIN will get first crack at leadoff and centerfield. If he falters, speedster JASON BOURGEOIS, vet MITCH MAIER and prospect WIL MYERS are waiting. Former Brewer YUNIESKY BETANCOURT will start at 2B and has good life in his bat for a middle infielder. OF ALEX GORDON may not hit for average, but his approach and power are there. DH BILLY BUTLER is rock solid, but it's fair to wonder whether his power will ever progress. 1B ERIC HOSMER has MVP-type upside, and he's on the verge of figuring out MLB pitching. OF JEFF FRANCOEUR still chases too many bad pitches, but the organization likes him and he still has some pop and speed. 3B MIKE MOUSTAKAS is too good for the minors, but he still hasn't caught up to major-league pitching. There's a good chance he finds his groove this year. C HUMBERTO QUINTERO will be the main backstop with BRAYAN PENA backing him up. Speedy SS ALCIDES ESCOBAR's bat hasn't caught up to his glove.
STARTING PITCHING: K.C. once again hopes this is the year LUKE HOCHEVAR puts it all together. His velocity picked up late last year, allowing him to be more than a groundball guy. Lefty BRUCE CHEN's late-career renaissance continues. He'll be a reliable veteran arm in the middle of K.C.'s rotation again. FELIPE PAULINO has the biggest upside in this rotation. He's always had one of MLB's best fastballs. His problem was that, when he missed (which has been often), it was usually belt-high and over the middle of the plate. If he hits his spots as he did late last year, he's got potential. But Paulino will start the season on the DL with a sore elbow. The Royals hope to solve JONATHAN SANCHEZ's command issues. The lefty is a risk, but has legitimate No. 3 potential. Top prospect DANNY DUFFY will get every chance to pitch his way into the Opening Day rotation.
RELIEF PITCHING: JOAKIM SORIA is out for the season with Tommy John surgery, leaving GREG HOLLAND to pick up closer duties. Holland was the Royals' best bullpen arm in 2011 and his stuff has always been nearly unhittable. It's just a matter of whether last year's vastly improved walk rate was for real. JONATHAN BROXTON was a disaster last season, but he'll be given every chance to become the No. 2 guy in this bullpen because of his experience in Los Angeles. AARON CROW was a first-round pick (twice) for his college career as a starter, but wore down late last year, and walked too many batters.

*Yankees-Royals Preview* ========================

By JEFF MEZYDLO STATS Senior Writer

New York (21-13) at Kansas City (18-14), 2:10 p.m. EDT

The New York Yankees hope to provide the support they could not during Hiroki Kuroda's last start and record their first road sweep of the Kansas City Royals in almost six years.

Kuroda looks to continue his strong spring while trying to help the Yankees to a season-high fifth straight win Sunday against the struggling Royals.

Kuroda (4-2, 2.30 ERA) has lasted seven innings in each of his last two starts, and his lone mistake was a two-run homer to Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez in New York's 2-0 loss at Coors Field on Tuesday.

"He pitched well enough to win, that's for sure," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.

New York (22-13) had provided the right-hander with an average of 5.75 runs of support in his previous six starts, but managed four hits Tuesday.

"Kuroda threw the ball well," teammate Vernon Wells said. "We just couldn't do anything to support him."

His teammates totaled one run while he went 0-2 with a 4.66 ERA against the Royals last season.

The Yankees, however, have not lost since Kuroda's last start and are in position to sweep the Royals (18-15) in Kansas City for the first time since Sept. 7-9, 2007. Wells hit a two-run, go-ahead homer in the fifth inning and made a running catch in the gap to end Saturday's 3-2 win.

Mariano Rivera improved to 14 for 14 on save chances Saturday. The 43-year-old, who will retire at the end of the season, has converted 28 straight against the Royals. His latest came just over a year after he tore the ACL in his right knee while shagging balls in the Kauffman Stadium outfield.

"I think Mo said it best, as an athlete, you can get hurt anywhere," Girardi said. "It just happened to be here. ... I'm sure it was good for him to get out there."

Wells is batting .353 (6 for 17) with two homers and five RBIs in his last four games.

New York hopes to continue its recent success against scheduled Kansas City starter Ervin Santana (3-1, 2.36), who is 0-5 with a 6.75 ERA in eight starts against the Yankees since he pitched eight strong innings Aug. 1, 2008, for the Los Angeles Angels.

"A lot of people just try to do too much. I know they're a good team," Santana told the Royals' official website. "They're aggressive. But if you make your pitches, you're going to get them out."

The right-hander has thrived in his new home at Kauffman Stadium, where he's allowed two earned runs in 23 innings while going 2-0 in three starts.

Santana's last outing came at Baltimore on Tuesday, when he gave up three first-inning runs and lasted six while not factoring in the decision of a 4-3 loss. Seven of the 12 runs he's yielded this season have come in the first inning.

"The first inning was, like always, a little trouble, but after that I settled down, threw a lot of strikes and put guys away," he said.

Billy Butler hit his fourth home run for Kansas City, which has lost five of six since winning four in a row.

Butler is 2 for 19 with six strikeouts in the last five games.
