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.
MINNESOTA: 2017: 85-77, second place, lost to Yankees in wild-card game.
MANAGER: Paul Molitor (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, RHP Jake Odorizzi, DH-1B Logan Morrison, RHP Fernando Rodney, RHP Addison Reed, LHP Zach Duke, SS-3B Erick Aybar, RHP Michael Pineda.
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Matt Belisle, RHP Bartolo Colon, C Chris Gimenez, DH-1B Kennys Vargas, LHP Hector Santiago, LHP Glen Perkins, LHP Buddy Boshers, RHP Michael Tonkin.
OUTLOOK: After their massive 26-win turnaround last season, earning Molitor the AL Manager of the Year award and a new contract through the 2020 season, the Twins were already on the upswing with their 25-and-under core of Berrios, Buxton, Sano, Rosario and Kepler. Then, after spring training began, they traded for Odorizzi and signed Morrison and Lynn, all at market-bargain prices. They've already had some setbacks, with finger surgery for Santana expected to keep him out for most or all of April, and the gut-punch news of Polanco's suspension, plus the uncertainty that surrounds Sano. But this is a team, even with the bold offseason moves made by AL heavyweights Boston and New York, and the strength of reigning AL Central champion Cleveland, that has the talent and spunk to be right in the playoff mix. With Hughes and Tyler Duffey on track for long-relief roles and a spate of well-regarded prospects set to fill out the rotation at Triple-A Rochester, this is as much starting pitching depth as the Twins have had in years. After using 16 different starters in 2017, they needed that. Rodney, Reed and Duke were important additions to bolster the bullpen, too, after Minnesota relievers ranked 22nd in the majors with a collective 4.40 ERA.
PREVIEW
Royals aim for consecutive wins over Twins
 

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins signed veteran right-hander Lance Lynn in March in the hopes of bolstering their starting rotation for a possible run to the postseason after reaching the wild-card game a year ago.

Lynn (6-7, 5.21 ERA), who gets the starting nod Wednesday as the Twins wrap up a three-game series with the Kansas City Royals at Target Field, still could be a deciding factor during the season's final months, but it may not be while wearing a Twins uniform.

The 31-year-old has quietly pitched his way into the annual rumor mill ahead of baseball's annual non-waiver trade deadline by going 5-3 with a 3.49 ERA in his last nine starts, including a 2.83 ERA in five June outings.

He was tagged for seven runs and failed to get out of the second inning in his first July start but bounced back his last time out, holding the Orioles to a run on six hits while striking out three over six innings to snap a two-game losing streak.

Lynn himself is partially to blame for the Twins' woes in 2018. He opened the season 1-4 with a 7.47 ERA through his first eight starts before turning it around.

Combined with his track record during six seasons with the Cardinals, which includes a 5-4 record and 4.50 ERA in 24 postseason appearances, Lynn could be an attractive player for a contender looking to round out its rotation.

"He's been fairly steady for us," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "It looks like he's really got command of his fastball. He can notch it up when he needs to."

Lynn is 1-1 with a 5.04 ERA in five career starts against the Royals. One of those starts came this season, when he allowed two runs and six hits over six innings and picked up a win in an 8-5 victory over the Royals on May 28.

Minnesota sits 8 1/2 games behind Cleveland in the AL Central after having its five-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night by Kansas City.

The Royals had dropped 10 in a row coming into Tuesday's contest and will try to win consecutive games for the first time since taking the last two contests of a three-game series with the Twins in Kansas City on May 29-30.

Twins right-hander Burch Smith (0-0, 5.40) will get his first start since 2013 on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old right-hander made seven starts for the Padres in 2013 but returned to the minors a year later before missing the 2015 and 2016 seasons following Tommy John surgery.

He spent last season in the Rays' minor league system and was acquired by the Royals after the Mets selected him sixth overall in the Rule 5 draft last winter.

Working out of the bullpen for Kansas City, Smith appeared in 24 games, allowing 23 runs on 38 hits with 39 strikeouts and 21 walks in 38 1/3 innings.

When struggling starter Jason Hammel was moved to the bullpen, manager Ned Yost decided to give Smith a chance.

"He's got more of a starter's mentality than a reliever, if you understand what I'm saying," Yost said. "It takes him a long time to get loose. He's got routines. It's not good for a reliever."

Smith has made two career appearances against the Twins, both this season as a reliever. He gave up five hits, three walks and seven runs over three innings in those outings, but did not get a decision in either.
