After closing out a homestand with a loss, the Yankees are back in action against the Royals. CC Sabathia will get the start in the opener in Kansas City. Sabathia has struggled recently, but the Royals' offense hasn't exactly been dominant this year. The Yankees lineup will go up against Jason Hammel, who has also had his struggles this season.
