Royals SS Alcides Escobar back in the lineup, Lorenzo Cain out


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is back in the starting lineup Monday against the Twins after missing last two games with a knee injury, according to 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City.

Escobar took a hard slide from Brett Lawrie in Friday's game against the Athletics and was forced to leave the game, which led to multiple bean balls being thrown throughout the weekend series. 

Outfielder Lorenzo Cain will get the day off Monday, with Paulo Orlando and Jarrod Dyson starting in center and right field. Cain is tearing the cover off the ball to start the year, hitting a blistering .413 with two home runs and 12 RBI in 46 at-bats.

The Royals are currently the favorites (-150) against the Twins.


Salvador Perez, Alex Gordon out of Royals' Sunday lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Royals catcher Salvador Perez and left fielder Alex Gordon are both out of the team's starting lineup for Sunday. 

Both players are being rested. Erik Kratz will catch, in just his second game appearance of the year. Kratz is batting seventh in the lineup. 

Jarrod Dyson will play left and bat ninth.


Royals' Lorenzo Cain sticking in center field


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain will stick in center field despite Jarrod Dyson assuming more of a regular role with right fielder Alex Rios sidelined, MLB.com reports.

Last season, Dyson would play center field when he entered the game, with Cain shifting to right field. However, manager Ned Yost said he likes the alignment of the outfield with Cain in center.

"We played Dyson in right the last month in Spring Training," Yost said. "Cain is at home in center. Dyson has a right fielder's arm. We did that last year to protect Lorenzo's legs so he didn't have to cover the big gaps. [Coach] Rusty [Kuntz] worked really hard with Dyson in right this spring so we didn't have to be shifting Cain all the time. In my mind I got three center fielders in Cain, Dyson and [Paulo] Orlando. I don't know if I've ever had that before. But Cain is arguably the best center fielder in the game."

With the news, Cain will remain eligible for the Gold Glove in center field, as players must play at least 75 percent of their innings at one position to be eligible.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Royals are road favorites (-122) in Minneosta Wednesday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
