New York Yankees Vs. Kansas City Royals: Saturday Probables, Preview, TV Schedule And More

The Kansas City Royals play host to the New York Yankees in the third game of a four-game set on Saturday, as the Royals look for their second home win of the young 2012 season.

Felipe Paulino will make his first start for the Royals on Saturday night. Paulino missed the first month of the season because of a right forearm flexor pronator strain, but has rehabbed his way back. Paulino made two rehab starts in AA, totaling 10.1 innings between the two starts, giving up three runs on eight hits while walking two and striking out 13.

Kansas City's bats will face off against Kiroki Kuroda, who is 2-3 on the season. Despite being under .500, Kuroda has been one of New York's better starters this year, with a 3.69 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and .269 BAA to his record in 31.2 innings on the season to date.

First pitch between the Yankees and Royals is scheduled for 6:10 p.m. CT from Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. Televised coverage can be found on Fox Sports Kansas City.
