With skid broken, Royals look for more vs. Twins

There is no "normal" to the 2020 MLB season. But right-hander Jakob Junis of the Royals feels like things are returning to normal ... sort of.

"Normal body soreness, normal arm soreness," he told reporters when asked about how he felt after making his season debut last Sunday against the Chicago White Sox.

Now, he'll look to break his "normal" when it comes to the Minnesota Twins, whom the Royals host for the first of a three-game series Friday -- and against whom Junis has yet to earn a victory.
