The White Sox (18-17) are looking to sweep the doubleheader in Kansas City against the Royals (12-22).

Davis Martin, 25, will start on the mound for the White Sox. Martin has pitched 36 innings in the South Siders’ farm system this season (24 with Double-A Birmingham and 12 with Triple-A Charlotte). In those 36 innings, Martin has a 2.50 ERA and a 0.917 WHIP. Davis, a right-handed pitcher, was drafted in the 14th round in the 2018 draft by the White Sox. This will be his MLB debut.

Brady Singer, another right-handed pitcher aged 25, will start for the Royals. The Royals drafted Singer 18th overall in 2018, and Singer made his MLB debut in 2020. Through five and two-thirds innings this season, Singer has a 6.35 ERA, a 3.39 xERA, and a 4.34 FIP, rendering him a 0.0-fWAR pitcher early on. Last year, Singer pitched 128 13 innings and accumulated 2.0 fWAR (4.91 ERA, 4.54 xERA, 4.04 FIP). Singer has pitched 26 innings against the White Sox in his career, and he has a 3.46 ERA against them.
