    Royals closer Joakim Soria left yesterday’s game against the Indians due to some elbow soreness.  Afterwards, he said that he’s pretty worried about it: “Oh, yeah, I’m worried,” he admitted. “Since I’ve had my Tommy John surgery (in 2003), I’ve never had anything like that. I don’t feel it’s that bad because before the Tommy…

    Royals closer Joakim Soria was forced from his appearance Sunday against the Indians by elbow soreness, the Kansas City Star’s Bob Dutton reports.

    Ivan Rodriguez

    UPDATE: Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that, contrary to Heyman’s report, the Royals have not made an offer to Rodriguez or invited him to camp. The club has “inquired” about the veteran backstop, but have also looked into “20 or more” players. Hard to tell whether an official offer was ever actually…

  4. Salvador Perez out 3-4 months after knee surgery; Royals interested in Ivan Rodriguez?

    Salvador Perez

    So much for Salvador Perez only missing a few weeks. Perez underwent his scheduled knee surgery today and the Royals announced afterward that he’s expected to be out for 12-14 weeks, which would mean a mid-June return at the earliest. In other words, there’s a strong chance the 21-year-old catcher will miss the entire first…

Perez was hurt while warming up the starting pitcher prior to yesterday’s game against the Reds.  There’s no word on how long he’ll be out, though it’s not unreasonable to think that it will be several weeks after…

    Craig mentioned earlier that yesterday was a rough day for Royals’ youngsters Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas. Well, today it was Salvador Perez‘s turn.

  7. Hector Sanchez adds two more homers in bid to make Giants

    Hector Sanchez

    No catcher has played in 100 major league games in his age-22 season since Brian McCann in 2006. Hector Sanchez probably won’t be the next — actually, Kansas City’s Salvador Perez figures to pull off the feat if he stays healthy this season — but he is bidding to make the Giants as a backup…

    Yesterday the Royals signed 21-year-old catcher Salvador Perez to a long-term deal before he’s even played one full season in the big leagues, but apparently they aren’t close to locking up Alex Gordon to a contract extension. Several months ago Gordon and the Royals were said to be talking about a multi-year deal, but they…

  10. Royals exercise Ned Yost’s option for 2013

    Feb 14, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    Ned Yost

    Not wanting to give any impression that their manager was working under “lame duck” status, the Royals picked up the 2013 option on Ned Yost’s contract Tuesday. The 57-year-old Yost is 126-163 since replacing Trey Hillman as Kansas City’s manager in May 2010, good for a .436 winning percentage. Still, the team seems happy with…
