Royals face Dodgers in tough test of improvements

The last time the Kansas City Royals faced the Los Angeles Dodgers, in 2017, 21 of the 26 players currently on the Royals active roster had not yet made their major league debut.

Most were still in college or in the minors, while Bobby Witt Jr. was preparing for his junior year in high school.

The Dodgers and Royals begin a three-game series Friday night in Kansas City. The Dodgers will start right-hander Tony Gonsolin (13-1, 2.30 ERA), while the Royals will counter with lefty Daniel Lynch (4-7, 4.79).
