Kansas City Royals News

Duquette: Three biggest Deadline winners

While the actual Deadline day didn't feature many high-profile moves, the last week has been filled with them. Now that the dust has settled, here are the three clubs that I think improved the most as a result of Trade Deadline deals.

Cueto posts quality start in Royals debut

The much-anticipated Royals debut of Johnny Cueto seemed to be following the perfect script. Cueto delivered a quality start against a tough Toronto team on Friday night and had a 6-3 lead after six innings, but the bullpen lost the lead in a 7-6 defeat.

Morales' heads-up slide gives Zobrist 2 RBIs

Ben Zobrist notched his first base hit with the Royals, and Kendrys Morales scored the second run on the play with an agile slide to beat Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin in the first inning of a 7-6 loss on Friday at Rogers Centre.

Royals' additions bolster rotation, versatility

GM Dayton Moore and his staff acquired right-hander Johnny Cueto, one of the biggest names on the trading block, as well as super-utility player Ben Zobrist, whom the Royals have admired for some time. Those moves have made for a happy manager in Ned Yost.

Young heads to 'pen; Guthrie stays in rotation

Right-hander Chris Young has been sent to the bullpen and struggling right-hander Jeremy Guthrie will keep his spot in the rotation, Royals manager Ned Yost said on Friday.

Royals lose late lead, fall on walk-off in 11th

Josh Donaldson hit a walk-off single in the 11th inning to send the Blue Jays to a 7-6 victory over the Royals on Friday night at Rogers Centre.

Duffy disappointed with results against Jays

This was an especially confusing night for Royals starter Danny Duffy. He felt good in his bullpen before Thursday night's game and he felt strong on the mound during the game. But the results just weren't there in a 5-2 loss to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

Gordon takes first swings off tee since injury

Royals left fielder Alex Gordon, on the disabled list because of a Grade 2-plus left groin strain, swung a bat on Thursday for the first time since the injury on July 8.

Royals rocked by powerful Jays' bats in loss

Dioner Navarro, Russell Martin and Josh Donaldson each homered while right-hander Marco Estrada tossed 5 2/3 strong innings in the Blue Jays' 5-2 victory over the Royals on Thursday night at Rogers Centre.

Royals welcome Zobrist, option Orlando

Newly acquired Ben Zobrist showed up at Rogers Centre on Thursday, greeted his new Royals teammates, and donned his familiar No. 18 -- the price tag from first-base coach Rusty Kuntz for giving up his jersey will be a leaf blower.

Pirates pick up righty Blanton from Royals

The Pirates picked up veteran right-hander Joe Blanton late Wednesday night, acquiring him from the Royals in exchange for cash considerations.

Decision between Guthrie, Young looms for Royals

At some point, Royals manager Ned Yost will have to decide between Jeremy Guthrie or Chris Young for the fifth and final spot in the rotation. Though Yost could skip the No. 5 spot in the rotation next turn because of Monday's off-day, Yost said he still will make the decision by next Tuesday.

Despite Zobrist trade, Yost happy with Infante at 2B

When newcomer Ben Zobrist joins the Royals in Toronto on Thursday, he is slated to take over primarily in left field, filling in for the injured Alex Gordon. But if Gordon comes back in early September, there has been an assumption by some fans that Zobrist immediately will take over for Omar Infante at second base. Nope. Not going to happen.

Guthrie, Royals can't finish sweep

The Indians unleashed a week of pent-up offensive frustration upon the Kansas City Royals with a season-high 18 hits and four home runs in Wednesday's 12-1 win at Progressive Field.

Starling's 9th-inning single caps cycle for Naturals

Bubba Starling saved the easiest for last, hitting a single to complete the cycle in the top of the ninth inning of Double-A Northwest Arkansas' 10-4 win over Arkansas.

Royals marvel at Infante-Escobar flip play

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas couldn't quite decide which play he enjoyed more: The Eric Hosmer snag of a hot grounder by Michael Brantley to save a run in the seventh, or the circus-act Omar Infante /Alcides Escobar play to get the first out in the ninth of the Royals' 2-1 win on Tuesday night.

MLBPAA hosts youth clinic in Kansas City

The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association Legends For Youth clinic was well worth the sweat beads, if the smiles on the kids' faces were any indication. The enthusiastic participants received autographs from eight former Major Leaguers, station-to-station instruction on all aspects of the game and life lessons from Kansas City-area residents and former Royals players Brian McRae and John Mayberry.

Hosmer continues to feast on Indians pitching

Royals manager Ned Yost has no explanation for why Eric Hosmer wears out the Indians. Hosmer had three more hits, a go-ahead homer and two RBIs in Kansas City's 2-1 win over Cleveland on Tuesday night.

Trades have Royals in driver's seat

Before this week, the Kansas City Royals could return to the World Series. Now they should return to the World Series. Before, they might win the title. Now, they'd better win the title.

Hosmer's homer in ninth helps Royals sink Tribe

Eric Hosmer hit a go-ahead home run in the ninth inning off Indians starter Trevor Bauer as the Royals secured a 2-1 victory on Tuesday night at Progressive Field.

Cueto appreciates regal welcome from Royals

When newly acquired right-hander Johnny Cueto drove here from Cincinnati on Tuesday morning and arrived at the Royals' team hotel, there was a welcoming committee of players and staffers waiting for him.

Royals make another splash with Zobrist deal

The Royals acquired super-utility man Ben Zobrist from the A's on Tuesday, their second big splash leading up to Friday's non-waiver Trade Deadline. The A's received right-handed pitcher Aaron Brooks and Minor League left-handed pitcher Sean Manaea.

Bob Feller Act of Valor Award nominees announced

The active Major League players and Hall of Famers nominated for the 2015 Bob Feller Act of Valor Award were revealed Tuesday.

Volquez hangs tough to pick up 10th victory

Right-hander Edinson Volquez came through with six innings and a quality start in the Royals' 9-4 win over the Indians on Monday night.

Hosmer, Royals gain from aggressive swings

Eric Hosmer delivered a three-run homer to left-center field in the first inning, setting the tone in the Royals' 9-4 victory over the Indians on Monday night.

Hosmer's four RBIs push Royals past Indians

The Royals belted two homers, including a three-run shot by Eric Hosmer in the first inning as part of his four-RBI night, in a 9-4 victory over the Indians on Monday night at Progressive Field.

Royals excited to acquire Cueto from Reds

Johnny Cueto is heading to Kansas City. One day after the Reds' ace was almost dealt to the Royals in advance of his dominant start against the Rockies, the two teams agreed to a deal that was officially announced on Sunday afternoon. In exchange for Cueto, the Royals dealt left-handers Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb and Cody Reed to Cincinnati.
