News
Royals right-hander Edinson Volquez wasn't sharp Monday night in Cleveland. But he didn't have to be.

Volquez received tremendous run support and cruised to his 10th win in 15 decisions. His five walks was one off his season high, but he allowed just three runs on six hits in six innings with four strikeouts.

It appeared that his outing would be marred only by a monster home run to center field by Carlos Santana, but the two baserunners he left in the seventh after his departure also scored.

Volquez is on a roll. He has given up eight runs in his last 30 1/3 innings pitched and is 4-1 in his last five starts.

News
The Royals and Athletics have agreed on a trade that would send left fielder Ben Zobrist to Kansas City, CBS Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting.

Kansas City sent one of its top prospects, Sean Manaea , to Oakland in the swap. Manaea was a concensus top-100 prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America. In addition, the Royals also parted ways with pitcher Aaron Brooks in the trade.

For the A's, Zobrist will initially play in the outfield to help fill the void of the injured Alex Gordon. Upon Gordon's return, Zobrist can shift into the infield.

News
Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie pulled a Houdini act early in his Wednesday performance in Cleveland. But he couldn't escape a disastrous sixth inning and the result was a defeat that evened his record at 7-7.

Guthrie finished having allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings with one walk and three strikeouts.

The right-hander gave up three hits and a walk and hit two batters over the first two innings, but trailed at that point just 2-0. But the Indians smashed six straight hits against him with one out in the sixth, including home runs by Giovany Urshela, Francisco Lindor and Michael Brantley.

"Guthrie was kind of classic Guthrie for the first five innings," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "He had a lot of traffic the first two innings, but limited the damage. He settled in the third, fourth and fifth. It just kind of fell apart there in the sixth."

Guthrie has been clobbered for 17 runs on 38 hits in his last 23 1/3 innings pitched and has raised his ERA to 5.65. His rotation spot could be in jeopardy in the wake of the acquisition of stud starter Johnny Cueto.

News
Royals second baseman Omar Infante drops down to the eighth spot in the lineup for the team's contest against the Indians, the first time since July 1 that Infante has hit in that position. 

Since then, Infante has jumped around the Royals' lineup, most recently spending a stretch hitting seventh. Infante is only hitting .218 in July, but he does have eight hits in his last 10 games.
