The kids, they will play.

The Royals face off against the Red Sox again with their newer, younger post-trade deadline lineup. Today’s starting lineup features six hitters age 25 or younger, with Michael Massey in the #2 spot in just his sixth MLB game.

The Red Sox start rookie right-hander Josh Winckowski, who was part of the Andrew Benintendi trade in 2021, going from the Mets to the Red Sox. He has a 5.00 ERA in nine starts with a pretty awful strikeout-to-walk ratio, but he was a strike-thrower in the minors this year.

Game time is at 7:10 CT on Bally Sports Kansas City with radio on 610 Sports in Kansas City.
