Eric Hosmer is listed in the Royals lineup for Tuesday night’s series opener against The Twins at Kauffman Stadium. Hosmer missed all of the weekend series against Cleveland due to a lack of strength in his bruised right hand.

The lineup resembles the one rolled out by the club on opening day. Minnesota has not listed its yet.

Here is the lineup as James Shields (9-5, 3.58 ERA) faces Kyle Gibson (8-8, 4.19 ERA):

ROYALS (53-31)

2. Omar Infante, 2B.

6. Billy Butler, DH.

7. Mike Moustakas, 3B.
