Right-hander Lance Lynn (2-5, 6.66 ERA) is scheduled for the White Sox as they complete their nine-game homestand on Sunday. Chicago has a 5-3 record.

Kansas City's Jackie Bradley Jr., Salvador Perez, Nick Pratto and Bobby Witt Jr. each own a pair of career home runs against Lynn.

Pratto and Michael Massey homered off Lynn in his most recent outing against the Royals, a 9-1 White Sox loss on May 10. Lynn is 8-4 with a 3.83 ERA over 15 career starts against the Royals.

Right-hander Brad Keller went to the injured list on Friday with right shoulder impingement syndrome and will miss the rematch with Lynn. With no scheduled starter announced, the club is expected to utilize a bullpen day.

Royals left-hander Amir Garrett was reinstated from the family medical emergency list prior to Saturday's 5-1 loss, with right-hander Jackson Kowar optioned to Triple-A Omaha.

Kansas City's bullpen has 214 strikeouts for the season.

Despite the winning homestand, Chicago's offense continues to sputter, with the club managing more than three runs just three times in the past 10 games.

Since a 17-4 blowout of Cincinnati on May 7, the White Sox have 43 runs over 12 games -- 3.6 runs per game -- with more than five runs only twice during that span.

Chicago lacks a home run over the past three games and has just two extra-base hits in the first two games against Kansas City.

Dana’s Pick Kansas City Royals: +164
