In his career, Nova is 2-1 with a 5.17 ERA and 21 strikeouts against Kansas City. Dylan Cease took the loss on the mound, falling to 1-1 on the year after allowing six runs, four earned, on eight hits while striking out seven over six innings of work. AJ Reed went 2 for 3 while Ryan Cordell, Jon Jay and Jose Abreu each added a base knock as none of Chicagos five hits went for extra bases in the losing effort.

If he's still available in deeper mixed leagues, you might wanna pounce now. Dozier took Ervin Santana deep to give the Royals a 1-0 lead, and it was the fourth blast of the year for the 27-year-old. It can't hurt. He's playing above his talent right now with a .300 average and .959 OPS, but let's keep in mind that Dozier was once a top prospect in the Kansas City system. Hunter Dozier went 2-for-3 with a homer and a walk in a loss to the White Sox on Monday.

Id like to take a shot on Chicago and the plus money, but the problem is that the White Sox have had five crucial games to their postseason potential since the second half of the season started, and the White Sox have choked so far, losing all five of those games following Tuesdays blowout. Novas struggles against anyone not named the Cubs continued in his last start, as he gave up four runs for the sixth straight start against a non-Chicago team on the other side. I just cant trust the White Sox in their current form, so its Royals or pass for me in this one. Kansas City, and Duffy specifically, have had ups and downs this season, but the difference is that the Royals have been the better team in the first two games of the set and Duffy has some documented success over the White Sox in his career with a big enough sample size.
