White Sox still looking to end skid against Royals

The White Sox (25-18) have lost six of seven and will try to avoid being swept for the first time this season when they face the Royals (22-20) at U.S. Cellular Field.

The Sox have seen their lead in the American League Central shrink to 1 ½ games over the Indians and 2 ½ over Kansas City.

The Sox start a four-game series against the Indians with a doubleheader Monday and will play four more against the Royals after that. 

Jose Abreu is being given the day off by Sox manager Robin Ventura.

At the plate

Melky Cabrera is batting .329 with five doubles and eight RBIs in 18 games in May. He has a hit in 14 straight games against the Royals.

On the mound

Sox starters lead the American League with a 3.44 ERA and have allowed two runs or fewer 24 times this season. Carlos Rodon (1-4, 4.73) starts today for the White Sox against Yordano Ventura (4-2, 4.85)

In the field

Jerry Sands will start his second straight game at first base for the White Sox, while Carlos Sanchez starts at shortstop.

Making moves

The White Sox reinstated catcher Kevan Smith from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Charlotte before the game.

The quote

“Everything is gonna probably be blown out of proportion with him if we don’t score. That would be the biggest thing for him, for us to get some runs for him.” – Robin Ventura on Rodon.

Up next

Vs. Indians, 4:10 p.m., 7:10 p.m. Monday, CSN. Game 1: RH Mat Latos (5-1, 4.00) vs. RH Mike Clevinger (0-0, 6.75). Game 2: RH Erik Johnson (0-1, 7.20) vs. RH Cody Anderson (0-3, 7.99).
