Losing four games in a row is bad enough, but losing four straight to teams ahead of you in the standings makes this losing streak debilitating. It is still only April, but most of their losses haven't just hurt them, but have helped their competition at the same time.

Danny Salazar, who struggled his last time out against the Tigers, will take the hill for the Indians. Yordano Ventura, who is facing a suspension from MLB for the events of his last start, will be starting for the Royals.
