Kansas City Royals catcher Humberto Quintero lost his footing and fell to the ground during his at-bat in the fourth inning of Wednesday night's against the New York Yankees.



Quintero's right foot slipped and he fell down in the batter's box just as he hit a foul ball . The bottom of Quintero's cleats were covered with mud, which may have been a factor in the fall.

Quintero struck out to end the inning, leaving the bases loaded.

Why are the Kansas City Royals so awful at home?

Wil Myers on the move

With Wil Myers, the prize prospect of the Kansas City Royals organization, much-anticipated promotion to Omaha last week, conversations began swirling about his future with the franchise. An injury-plagued scuffle at Northwest Arkansas last season knocked Myers a bit off schedule. Instead of starting the season at Triple-A, he returned to Double-A to prove himself. Prove himself...

Royals rookie Smith set to make his first start in New York

After spending his first night as a major-leaguer in the bullpen, left-hander Will Smith make a spot start for the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday in the series finale at Yankee Stadium. Smith was promoted from Class AAA Omaha, where he was 1-3 with a 4.01 ERA in nine starts. He had allowed 65 hits and 13 walks while striking out 37 in 51 2/3 innings. "We want to see what...

Colon drawing comparisons to Jeter

Now, this is the Christian Colon the Royals envisioned when they drafted him with the fourth overall pick of the 2010 draft. After a slow start, Colon has heated up in the month of May and raised his average to .312 with a .370 on-base percentage for the Class AA Northwest Arkansas Naturals. Colon has three homers, 15 RBIs and eight stolen bases. That's a significant improvement...

Smith's debut is over in a New York minute

On Wednesday, the Royals thrust him into the rotation on baseball's biggest stage -- Yankee Stadium -- against a star-studded, veteran lineup. Smith, 22, was not quite ready for his Broadway debut, giving up three runs...

Wilmington Blue Rocks Sweep Away Potomac Nationals; Complete 5-1 Homestand

About 2 weeks ago, Wilmington Blue Rocks manager Vance Wilson implied his team to start hitting more to pick up the good efforts the pitchers were offering. After seeing the Rocks complete the sweep of the Potomac Nationals (Washington) in a mid morning school kid's special (the game started at 11:05am) its safe to say the team is playing at a high level in all facets of the...

OPS Fantasy Leagues: Build Me Up Butlercup

Billy Butler (and his milkshake) brings all the balls to go yard. This year, for the first time in his career, he’s hit his eighth home run before June. Butler has been a perennial candidate to experience a spike in homers because he consistently ranks among the league leaders in hitting doubles, with at least 44 in each of the last three years. Unfortunately, those doubles have...

Will Smith gets a Royal welcome at Yankee Stadium

Will Smith, one of the Royals pitching prospects, didn’t show his potential in Wednesday night’s 8-3 loss to the New York Yankees. Smith pitched three and a third innings, giving up six hits and five runs, all earned, with three of the runs home runs. He struck out one and walked one. Smith left the game with a glittering 13.50 ERA and got the loss. After Smith faced 16 batters...

Yankees give Royals rookie Smith a rude welcome to majors

Smith, 22, was not quite ready for his Broadway debut, giving...

Felipe Paulino: Extension Canidate?

Call me crazy, but I think the time has come for the Royals to extend Felipe Paulino. Paulino is Super 2 arbitration eligible in 2013 and won't be a free agent until 2015 at the earliest. I think a deal extending him two years with a club option or two might be doable by both sides. A salary breakdown might look like this:2012 - 1.9 Million2013 - 3.1 Million2014 - 4.5 Million2015...
