Weekly Hitter Rankings: Royals Flush with Steals
Weekly Hitter Rankings: Royals Flush with Steals

This article is part of our Weekly Hitter Rankings series.

What happens when one of the league's top running teams squares off with a couple batteries leading the league in steals allowed? We'll soon find out as the Royals face the Yankees and White Sox.

The Mariners and Dodgers left-handed contingent are set up for a productive week as both clubs line up to square off with seven right-handed starters. The Brewers are home for the full seven while the Blue Jays, Reds and running Royals are on the road for seven. The Astros, Athletics and Pirates draw the short straw with only a quintet of contests on the docket.

As usual, these are preliminary rankings. Please check back Sunday night for the final set, once teams firm up their pitching plans.

For the week April 15-21.
