The month-by-month home game totals are: March: two, April: 14, May: 13, June: 11, July: 12, August: 16 and September: 13. The Royals have slated Eric Skoglund for Wednesday's outing versus the visiting Chicago White Sox.

The Sox have well-regarded outfield prospects Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert and Blake Rutherford in their pipeline, and they drafted two slugging corner infielders in the 2017 draft, first-rounder Jake Burger and over-slot second rounder Gavin Sheets. The road Interleague schedule will take the Royals to Milwaukee (June 26-27), Pittsburgh (Sept. 17-19) and Cincinnati (Sept. 25-26). But his value as a steady clubhouse presence, especially with young players such as fellow Cuban Yoan Moncada around, seems to be spiking. Hammel lasted just three and a third innings, coughing up five runs, walking two and striking out seven. "Obviously very excited and glad to be here and help out any way I can".

The 2018 schedule is tentative and subject to change. "When you see people having confident at-bats you're seeing how they're approaching certain things (and then) you're seeing those guys having success".

The 30-year-old right-hander spent the season with Triple-A Charlotte and was in Florida helping his family prepare for Hurricane Irma when he got the call from the White Sox on Thursday night.

"Starting, relieving, as long as we win it's all that matters to me", Fulmer said.

Jose Abreu is in the midst of a tear and looks to record his fourth consecutive stellar performance when the Chicago White Sox visit the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday for the middle contest of their three-game set. Chicago starter Dylan Covey surrendered a first inning grand slam before ending his day with 5.2 innings pitched to drop to 0-5.
