The month of July for the KC Royals starts with games and more games without a day off. On the positive side, the Royals play 17 of their 26 games at home.
The Royals actually do not have an off day until the Major League Baseball All-Star break (July 13-16).
The month starts off with the Royals completing their series in Houston and continues with an 11-game homestand heading into the All-Star break.
The Royals first welcome Minnesota to town for July 4th weekend, a four-game series that starts on July 2nd. Following the Twins’ trip to Kauffman Stadium, the TB Rays (without Wil Myers) come to town from July 6-9. With a four-game set, maybe former Royal Jake Odorizzi will make a start in the series? The Toronto Blue Jays finish out the homestand with three games (July 10-12).
So that is 17 straight games for the Royals without a day off.
Following the four day All-Star break, the Royals head out on the road to face the Chicago White Sox for a weekend series (July 17-18), before returning to the K for another homestand (six games in seven days).
Pittsburgh comes to town for three games (July 20-22) before Houston finishes out the homestand over the weekend (July 24-26).
The Royals finish the month of July on the road, as they head to both Cleveland (July 27-29) and Toronto (July 30-August 2). The road trip continues into August (a ten-game road trip).
In July, the Royals play ten games against the American League Central (Twins, White Sox, and Indians). They play one Interleague series (against the Pirates) and nine games against the AL East (the Rays and the Blue Jays).
