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.
TEXAS: 2017: 78-84, tied for third place.
MANAGER: Jeff Banister (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: LHP Mike Minor, LHP Matt Moore, RHP Doug Fister, RHP Jesse Chavez, RHP Bartolo Colon, 1B Tommy Joseph.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B-DH Mike Napoli, CF Carlos Gomez, RHP Andrew Cashner, RHP Jason Grilli, RHP A.J. Griffin, LHP Dario Alvarez.
OUTLOOK: AL West champs in each of Banister's first two seasons, the Rangers are coming off their second losing season in nine years. With most of their everyday lineup back, they should be able to hit and score runs again. But in a division with the defending World Series champs and other improved teams, Texas must depend on a revamped rotation ' maybe using six starters in some variation ' and the hope that its bullpen will be drastically improved. The Rangers scored 799 runs last year and ranked third in the majors with 237 homers. Seven returning players had at least 17. That group is led by Gallo, now the primary first baseman after playing three positions in his first full big league season. Hamels, the clear No. 1 starter now that Yu Darvish is gone, missed seven weeks in 2017 with an oblique strain and threw fewer than 200 innings for the first time since 2009. Perez could unexpectedly be ready for opening day after breaking his non-pitching elbow in a mishap on his ranch in Venezuela before Christmas. Fister didn't pitch his first major league game last season until June, and Minor hasn't started since 2014 with the Braves.
PREVIEW
Rangers, Royals bring winning feeling into four-game set
 

The Texas Rangers are on an offensive roll and look to continue that recent prowess on Thursday as they open a four-game series against the Kansas City Royals at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas.

Kansas City will send left-hander Danny Duffy (1-6, 6.88 ERA) to the mound for the series opener while the Rangers will counter with Austin Bibens-Dirkx (0-0, 0.00), who was called up from Triple-A Round Rock to make his season debut.

Texas outbashed New York on Wednesday, beating the Yankees 12-10. Jurickson Profar's three-run double in the sixth was the go-ahead hit that allowed the Rangers to win for the second straight night and snap the Yankees' string of eight consecutive winning series.

"I'm feeling a little like my old self -- I'm hitting the ball well and swinging the bat good," Profar said. "It's a long season and you have your ups and down. I found myself in a position to produce something good for the team, and I have to be able to take advantage of those situations."

It was the first time the Rangers have won a game when their pitchers allowed at least 10 runs since a 13-11 victory over the Chicago White Sox on May 10, 2016. It was just their fifth such win since the start of the 2010 season.

Rangers starter Doug Fister allowed eight runs (six earned) in 4 1/3 innings. But the late-inning relief combination of Alex Claudio, Jose Leclerc, Chris Martin and Keone Kela provided Texas with scoreless innings after Profar put them ahead.

Rangers designated hitter Nomar Mazara hit his first home run in 12 games when he smashed one into the home bullpen in the fourth inning. Ronald Guzman soon followed with his third home run in three games as the Rangers erased the Yankees' 4-0 lead with a five-run inning. Both home runs came off New York starter CC Sabathia.

For Mazara, it was his first home run since going deep twice against the Tigers on May 9. He had seven home runs in the first nine games of May, but none until he hit a two-run shot off Sabathia on Wednesday.

The Royals finally won their first road series of 2018, finishing off a series against St. Louis on Wednesday afternoon with a 5-2 victory in 10 innings. And because it was against their I-70 rivals to the east in St. Louis, it was even more significant for Kansas City.

"It's always important (to win this series)," Royals left fielder Alex Gordon said. "We take this series a little more (importantly) just because of the rivalry and the crowd, and the energy. It's always a tough place to play. Nice to come away with two wins."

Salvador Perez, who made his first start at first base since 2013, homered early for the Royals in Wednesday's win, and Whit Merrifield tied the game with a sacrifice fly in the sixth. Drew Butera's two-run single in the 10th off Cardinals closer Bud Norris proved to be the game-winner.

Duffy allowed five runs in four innings in his most recent outing against the Yankees on Saturday. He is 1-2 with a 3.25 ERA in his career against Texas.

Bibens-Dirkx has made eight starts in Triple-A, going 2-3 with a 3.72 ERA in 38 2/3 innings. He struck out 32 and walked eight.
