The fans at Royals Stadium will be treated to a game between the Minnesota Twins and the Kansas City Royals when they take their seats on Saturday.

Felix Jorge will be the starting pitcher for the Twins on this day. Right hander Jorge is 0-0 this season with a 0.00 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Jason Hammel who starts for the Royals. Right hander Hammel is 4-6 with a 4.75 ERA so far this season.

Jorge will be recalled to make his major-league debut after shining at Double-A Chattanooga, going 8-1 with a 3.26 ERA in 14 games while recording 61 strikeouts and 22 walks in 85 2/3 innings. The 23-year-old Dominican went 12-8 with a 2.69 ERA between Single- and Double-A in 2016. “His slider is coming along and his changeup is pretty good,” Chattanooga manager Jake Mauer told MiLB.com of Jorge. “But for me, when he’s really good, it is all about commanding the fastball.”

Hammel is unbeaten in his last six turns but ended a streak of four straight quality starts in a no-decision last time out against Toronto as he permitted two runs over five innings. The 34-year-old South Carolina native walked three against the Blue Jays after issuing one free pass in his previous four outings. Max Kepler (3-for-4, one double) has caused trouble for Hammel, who was 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA in two starts versus Minnesota in April and is 2-2 all-time against the Twins.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 140-moneyline favorites versus the Twins, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The Kansas City Royals entered June eight games under .500 and can climb into second place in the American League Central on the first day of July as they host the Minnesota Twins for a day-night doubleheader on Saturday. Eric Hosmer launched a three-run homer as Kansas City took the series opener 8-1 on Friday, moving within one game of the Twins for second in the division and three behind first-place Cleveland.

Hosmer is 8-for-23 during a six-game hitting streak while Mike Moustakas belted his 21st homer Friday as the Royals improved to 17-9 since June 1 and scored eight runs for the second time in three contests. The Twins started their 11-game road trip by sweeping three from Cleveland but have dropped four of five since, giving up a total of 27 runs in the losses. Friday’s setback was just Minnesota’s second in nine contests against Kansas City this season and the team managed just three hits, including Miguel Sano’s run-scoring single that increased his total to 19 RBIs against the Royals in 2017. Joe Mauer went 0-for-3 in the series opener after registering multiple hits in five of his previous eight contests.

Kansas City won its last outing, a 8-1 result against the Twins on June 30. Bettors who backed the Royals at -125 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (9) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Last time out for Minnesota, they were a 8-1 loser as they battled the Royals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Royals at -125 were rewarded, while the 9 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
