Shoulder - Probable for Sept. 22 at Cleveland (Updated - 9/20/14)
News
Royals pitcher Danny Duffy threw a bullpen session late Friday and will be held out of action Saturday and Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.

Duffy hasn't pitched since Sept. 6 due to a shoulder issue, but he's listed as the team's probable starter for Monday's game in Cleveland. As long as he doesn't suffer a setback over the weekend, he should return to action Monday. Duffy owns a 2.42 ERA and 108:50 K:BB ratio in 141 1/3 innings.

News
Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura turned in a strong start Wednesday against the White Sox.

Ventura gave up one run on three hits over seven innings. He struck out seven and walked two during the outing. Ventura allowed his first run in the third inning. After loading the bases with no outs, Ventura gave up a sac fly, plating a run. The run didn’t seems to bother him much, as Ventura went on to toss four additional scoreless innings before leaving the game. Ventura threw 100 pitches.

With the win, Ventura improved to 13-10. He’ll take on the Indians in his next start.

News
The Royals have picked it up lately offensively and right fielder Norichika Aoki is greatly responsible.

Aoki has been white-hot with 11 hits in his last 13 at-bats to raise his average 16 points to .281 - no easy feat at this time of year. That mark is at its highest point since May 25, but his overall hot streak has extended back to Aug. 27. Aoki has hit safely in all but four games since then and is 28 for 72 during that stretch.

Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain merely accentuated a strong stretch Wednesday night against Chicago, when he blasted a three-run homer off super southpaw Chris Sale and added two more hits.

Cain has hit so well that he has been moved to the third spot in the lineup. He has hit safely in seven of his last eight games with 12 hits in 32 at-bats during that run. Cain has eight RBI and seven runs scored in his last 10 games, sweetening his stat line on the season to .298/.337/.413. He has also contributed 25 stolen bases.

News
Royals pitcher James Shields took a loss Saturday, allowing three earned runs on six hits and one walk in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Tigers.

Shields (14-8) entered the seventh inning with the team's locked up 1-1 in the cruicial AL Central battle, but the Tigers recorded three singles and a walk in the inning to bring home two runs and chase the starter from the game. Shields owns a 3.18 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 176:42 K:BB ratio in 221 innings. He'll make his last start of the regular season Thursday hoping his team is still alive in the race for the division crown.

Vargas allowed five runs on nine hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out one and did not issue any walks during the outing. Vargas found himself in trouble in the first inning. After a leadoff single, Vargas gave up a run-scoring double to Miguel Cabrera. Victor Martinez drove in Cabrera, adding to the damage. Eugenio Saurez would add to the fun, driving in the third run of the inning. In the second inning, Torii Hunter would add a run on a double. After a quiet third, Vargas gave up his final run in the fourth. Ian Kinsler doubled in the final run given up by Vargas. He was pulled from the game at that point. 

With the loss, Vargas dropped to 11-10. He’ll take on the Indians in his next start.
