Daniel Lynch looks to continue to impress as Royals host Twins

Daniel Lynch has been the best of the Kansas City Royals' four first-round picks from the 2018 draft. The Royals need him to prove it once again as they host the Minnesota Twins for the first of a three-game series Friday.

The Twins will hand the ball to left-hander Devin Smeltzer (0-0, 1.80 ERA) to face Lynch (2-2, 3.30).

The Twins come into the game after an off day, while the Royals fell to the White Sox 7-4 Thursday afternoon as Chicago claimed a rare five-game series 3-2.
