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.
Royals, White Sox look to claim series

The Chicago White Sox will attempt to bounce back from a disappointing loss when they face the Kansas City Royals in the rubber match of a three-game series on Sunday afternoon at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Chicago (45-77) is coming off a 3-1 loss to the Royals in which it squandered several key scoring opportunities. The biggest miscue came when outfielder Adam Engel failed to put down a bunt with two strikes. He fouled it off for strike three.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria wants Engel -- and all of his players -- to learn from those mistakes going forward.

"Every single major league hitter should know how to bunt," Renteria said to the Chicago Sun-Times. "And I make no bones about that. That ball has got to get down. It didn't work out. He didn't get it down. He was frustrated about it. It's not that he didn't want to get it down, he just didn't get it down. ...

"It's a good place. We have a critical situation, a moment in which you have to focus and concentrate and do your job. These are the tests that we put all our men through because a situation is demanded of them.

"If he's able to get it down, to slow the game down enough to do his job there, he'll be able to slow it down and do it when it's really, really important, which could be a playoff game, could be a wild-card game, could be a postseason game."

Those days could be on the horizon for the White Sox, but this season is about player development. Chicago has lost seven of its last 11 games and has scored one run or fewer 23 times this season.

Kansas City (38-85) has struggled even worse. The Royals are coming off only their fourth win in the past 16 games.

Royals outfielder Alex Gordon will look to start a hot streak at the plate after homering in Saturday's victory. The blast marked Gordon's first home run since Aug. 1. Seven of his eight homers this season have come on the road.

Meanwhile, White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu carries a five-game hitting streak into the series finale. The Cuban native is hitting .344 (33-for-96) with eight doubles, nine home runs and 24 RBIs in his past 24 games.

White Sox right-hander Reynaldo Lopez (4-9, 4.40 ERA) will make his 25th start of the season. The talented 24-year-old has gone seven starts without a victory, with his last win coming July 1 against the Texas Rangers. He is 0-4 with a 6.20 ERA since.

In six career starts against the Royals, Lopez is 2-1 with a 3.66 ERA. He has five walks and 20 strikeouts in 39 1/3 innings.

The Royals will counter with right-hander Heath Fillmyer (1-1, 3.61), who will make his seventh start of his rookie campaign. He picked up his first career win Aug. 8 against the Chicago Cubs.

Fillmyer has faced the White Sox once in relief, allowing one run in 2 1/3 innings for a 3.86 ERA.
