by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Royals OF Jarrod Dyson adjusting to big role with Gordon out


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/14/2015) Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson has been a valuable part of the team for the past few seasons, given his blazing speed, but with the recent injury to Alex Gordon, he will get another shot to prove himself as an everyday player, per the Topeka Capital-Journal

Dyson, who is hitting .257 with nine RBI and 11 steals, will be the primary replacement as Gordon recovers from a groin strain. His defensive ability is unquestioned, but he will have to hit some to offset the loss of one of the team's best producers in the lineup. 

"It's hard to fill his big shoes," Dyson said. "So I'll just try to do the best I can to make plays and do whatever I can do to help the team win."

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
