Royals throwing young arms at Blue Jays

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- With Danny Duffy and Ian Kennedy on the disabled list, the Kansas City Royals' rotation consists of four freshmen -- Glenn Sparkman, Jorge Lopez, Brad Keller and Heath Fillmyer -- and one sophomore in Jakob Junis.

Sparkman will make his first career start on Thursday night against the Toronto Blue Jays after eight relief appearances. Lopez, who was acquired from the Milwaukee Brewers as part of the Mike Moustakas trade, made his third career start on Wednesday.

Junis has made 38 starts, including 16 as a rookie last year. Keller has made 13 starts and Fillmyer six.
