Jason Radowitz breaks down the Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals game tonight.

Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals Prediction: Will the Bats Get Hot in Chicago?

The Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox can't be happy with their starts to the 2022 season. However, it's a long season and there's reason to believe both of these teams can have more success throughout the season than the success they've had to start (which is not much). Both teams will send out a left-handed pitcher for tonight's game and it's likely that both teams will end up sending out a full lineup of right-handed bats.

What does that mean for tonight's total? Here are our picks, predictions, and odds for Tuesday's game between the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox.

Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals Prediction

The Kansas City Royals have a ton of young pitching. But that young pitching still needs time to develop. 25-year-old Daniel Lynch will take the mound for the Royals after allowing no runs against the Minnesota Twins in his last start. Lynch had just two strikeouts and allowed one walk along with four hits in that game but escaped allowing no runs. In the game before that, Lynch allowed nine hits and six runs to the St. Louis Cardinals, who were also a full right-handed lineup. Lynch has a 5.81 xFIP with 18% strikeouts and 9% walks dating back to last season. Against righties, he's allowed a .386 wOBA and ISO of .208 dating back to last season. He's been much better against lefties but the White Sox won't have a single lefty in the lineup, so that doesn't matter much at all. In the White Sox lineup, Chicago has an ISO of .218 and wOBA of .368 dating back to last season. This is including Luis Robert, who is questionable for tonight's game. The lineup is full of righties that limit strikeouts, walk at a high rate, and hit for a ton of power. On the flip side, Dallas Keuchel will get the start for the White Sox after giving up 10 runs in his last start in just one inning of work. Keuchel got a bit unlucky with ground balls finding holes last game but realistically, he's going to allow a ton of balls in play and when you put the ball in play, good things happen if you're the offense. The Royals don't have much going for them offensively this year but going up against Keuchel should help their case. Salvador Perez could have a ton of success against Keuchel and Aldaberto Mondesi also have some power against lefties dating back to last season. Therefore, I'll take the Over 5 in the first five innings between the two teams.
