Once Guthrie pitched his way out of a first-inning jam Wednesday, he had little trouble shutting out the Reds through six innings and winning his third straight start. But the Royals will need more from him than his past bouts with the Yankees.

Eovaldi didn't make it out of the fifth inning in his last start, hit for five runs and seven hits in 4 1/3 frames by the Nationals in D.C. His fastball velocity generally ranks among the league leaders. Eovaldi has never faced the Royals.

No team that Duffy has faced five times or more has given him more trouble than the Yanks -- 8.05 ERA with 23 hits and 17 runs in 19 innings. Against the current Yankees lineup, though, he is allowing just a .220 batting average.

Warren has stated his case to stay in the rotation with back-to-back quality starts against the Rays and Nationals, but got two losses as the Yanks managed two runs in each game. He has a 1.35 ERA in three relief appearances vs. K.C.

Young has done all he can to secure a spot in the rotation, giving up just one run across all four wins this season. Next up are the struggling Yankees, who have scored two or fewer runs in six of their last nine losses and one vs. Young on May 15.

After striking out 16 Orioles on May 10, Pineda has turned in a pair of clunkers against the Royals and Rangers. On May 15 at K.C., Pineda had a mediocre slider and was knocked around for five earned runs and 10 hits, both season highs.

Career stats

Arrieta has posted quality starts in his last three outings, but wasn't happy with his last start vs. the D-backs when he gave up three earned runs over six innings. Maybe being back at Wrigley will help. He has a 2.41 ERA in five home starts.
