    The Royals haven’t been in first place this late in a season since 2003.

  2. Royals lose Nori Aoki to DL, bring back Justin Maxwell

    Jun 21, 2014, 11:30 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Don’t expect any more funny Aoki pictures for the next couple of weeks.

  3. Plays of the Day: David Lough, Will Venable make outstanding diving catches

    Apr 27, 2014, 11:10 PM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Detroit Tigers

    David Lough and Will Venable both made fantastic catches on Sunday.

    Yet another injury for Lorenzo Cain.

  5. What on earth are the Royals doing now?

    Feb 1, 2014, 4:12 PM EDT

    Bruce Chen

    When the Royals re-signed Bruce Chen to a one-year, $4.25 million contract this week, it was generally met with tepid approval. One could argue that he’s 90 percent of the pitcher Jason Vargas is for half of the salary and one-quarter the commitment. So, that’s not bad. But then came the fallout. First, it was…

  6. Projecting the 2013 Gold Glove winners

    Oct 25, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

  7. This clinches it: Ned Yost has no idea what he’s doing

    Sep 9, 2013, 10:11 PM EDT

    Ned Yost

    Setting the scene: Indians up 4-3 on the Royals in the top of the ninth. Cleveland closer Chris Perez gives up a single to Salvador Perez and a walk to Mike Moustakas to begin the inning, setting things up very nicely. Very nicely indeed, for Ned Yost to trample all over what was left of…

  8. Billy Butler goes 5-for-5, gets removed for pinch-runner

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    Billy Butler

    When Billy Butler led off the bottom of the ninth with a single Thursday in a tie game against the Mariners, it gave him his third career five-hit game. It was also the end of his day; the Royals pulled him in favor of Pedro Ciriaco. The switch didn’t work out — Ciriaco was left…

  9. Royals activate Lorenzo Cain from the disabled list

    Sep 4, 2013, 8:32 PM EDT

    As first relayed by Kansas City Star beat writer Bob Dutton, the Royals have officially activated outfielder Lorenzo Cain from the 15-day disabled list in time for Wednesday night’s game against the Mariners. Cain has been out for a month with a strained left oblique muscle and still hasn’t been cleared to hit, but he…

  10. Maybe the Royals shouldn’t bat Chris Getz leadoff

    Aug 13, 2013, 11:32 PM EDT

    Omar Infante, Chris Getz

    In the grand scheme of things, we know lineup order means little. It’s certainly more important that a manager have the right guys playing than have them in the proper order. Lineup decisions aren’t worth a tenth of all the ire they produce on the Internet and radio. And, yet, once in a great while,…

  11. The Royals finally use the disabled list again

    Aug 1, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Chris Getz, Adam Dunn

    But, don’t worry, it’s just for Chris Getz. The major criticism with the Royals’ decision to buy and not sell at the trade deadline was that they did nothing to address the black hole in their lineup at second base. Now they’ll be forced to try something a little different after Getz suffered a sprained…

  12. Royals acquire Justin Maxwell from Astros

    Jul 31, 2013, 3:04 PM EDT

    Justin Maxwell

    FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the Royals have picked up outfielder Justin Maxwell from the Astros. The Kansas City Star’s Bob Dutton confirmed the deal, adding that the Astros are getting right-hander Kyle Smith in return. Maxwell gives the Royals another outfield option with David Lough having cooled off of late. With Lorenzo Cain primarily…

  13. Alex Gordon suffers head injury on inside-the-park homer

    Jul 4, 2013, 12:52 AM EDT

    Alex Gordon

    All turned around by a Jason Kipnis fly to deep left, Alex Gordon hit his head on the fence at Kauffman Stadium and left Wednesday’s Indians-Royals game with a possible concussion and hip contusion. Gordon’s head snapped back as he hit the wall, which is actually a chain-link fence in Kansas City. Had it simply…

  14. Royals designate Jeff Francoeur for assignment

    Jun 29, 2013, 8:11 PM EDT

    Jeff Francoeur

    The Royals have designated outfielder Jeff Francoeur for assignment, reports Bob Dutton on Twitter. The veteran wasn’t producing at all, carrying a .574 OPS into today’s game against the Twins. He struck out in his only plate appearance of the day, pinch-hitting for Jarrod Dyson. Francoeur is only 29 years old, but has followed up…

  15. Royals claim Quintin Berry off waivers from Tigers

    Jun 4, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Drew Smyly

    In their never-ending quest to acquire speedy, athletic outfielders who can’t really hit the Royals have claimed Quintin Berry off waivers from the Tigers. Detroit designated Berry for assignment last week after he failed to make the Opening Day roster and hit just .168 in 49 games at Triple-A. Berry was decent for the Tigers…

  16. Royals misjudge their talent, Wil pay the price

    Dec 9, 2012, 11:58 PM EDT

    Dayton Moore, David Glass

    Royals GM Dayton Moore has told us for years to “trust the process.” For better or worse, he put forth his endgame on Sunday night, sacrificing top prospects Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi, not to mention third baseman Patrick Leonard and left-hander Mike Montgomery, in order to bring in James Shields and Wade Davis from…

  17. No. 1 Royals prospect Wil Myers won’t be called up Sept. 1

    Aug 31, 2012, 5:59 PM EDT

    Wil Myers

    The Royals have the need for another outfielder with Jarrod Dyson sidelined by a strained lat, but they won’t be calling up Wil Myers when rosters expand Saturday. The 21-year-old Myers will remain with Triple-A Omaha through the end of the minor league season, and because the Storm Chasers are in the playoffs, that could…

  18. Paul Konerko expected to return from concussion Friday

    Aug 16, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

    Paul Konerko Getty

    Paul Konerko is on the seven-day concussion disabled list after taking a Jarrod Dyson elbow to the head on August 7, but the White Sox slugger is expected to be back in the lineup tomorrow night. Konerko reported no problems while taking batting practice and playing catch Wednesday, and manager Robin Ventura indicated that he’ll…

  19. Paul Konerko placed on seven-day concussion disabled list

    Aug 10, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Paul Konerko AP

    The White Sox will have to get by without one of their best hitters for a little while, as Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that the White Sox have placed Paul Konerko on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion. Konerko suffered the concussion Tuesday night when he was elbowed in the head by Royals…

  20. Lorenzo Cain restarts rehab assignment following April setback

    Jun 19, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Lorenzo Cain Getty

    The Royals traded Melky Cabrera to the Giants during the offseason with the idea that Lorenzo Cain would be their starting center fielder moving forward. That trade obviously hasn’t worked out so well for the Royals, as Cabrera is hitting .364 this season and leads the majors in hits while Jonathan Sanchez has been terrible…

  21. Royals place Lorenzo Cain on disabled list with groin injury

    Apr 12, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Chicago Cubs

    Lorenzo Cain had a huge spring training, hitting .371 with five homers and a 1.193 OPS in 27 games, but he went just 2-for-15 to begin the season and has now been placed on the disabled list with a groin injury. Cain suffered the injury Tuesday and the Royals indicated that he was likely to…
