The Royals will try to even the series this afternoon against the Blue Jays with James McArthur slated to take the ball. Zack Greinke is expected to be the “bulk guy” today.

Kevin Gausman goes for the Blue Jays, with the second-best strikeout rate among starters. He has a groundball rate of 42 percent and one of the lowest home run rates among qualified pitchers, relying heavily on a splitter and slider.

Game time is at 2:07 CT on Bally Sports Kansas City.
