FF Locker Room:
The Kansas City Royals activated right-handed pitcher Wade Davis over the weekend from the paternity leave list. Davis has struggled in 2013, posting a 5.89 earned run average to go along with a brutal 1.75 WHIP.

The Kansas City Royals made some odd choices with their pitching staff before Sunday’s 6-4 loss against Cleveland. In the finale before the All-Star break, the Royals designated reliever J.C. Gutierrez for assignment to make room for Wade Davis’ return from paternity leave. Donnie Joseph, who had replaced Davis on the roster, was sent back to AAA Omaha in favor...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Five observations on the current state of the Royals.
You know that in his heart, general manager Dayton Moore wants to keep pending free agent Ervin Santana through the season, watch him help the Royals contend, and then, if he can't sign him to an extension (granted, not realistic with the season Santana is having), take the sandwich pick in...
When the Cleveland Indians agreed to terms with manager Terry Francona, I knew they were going to be a legit contender for the AL Central division title.
Midway through the season and I must admit that I am not surprised where things stand in the American League Central. The Detroit Tigers are in first place in the division, the Cleveland Indians are right behind them in the standings...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The last time the Royals had three All-Stars, they were only three years removed from a World Series championship. So, yeah, it's been a while.

Biggest Surprise of 1st Half:
For a time in June, the Kansas City Royals pitching staff owned the best ERA in the American League. That’s quite saying something for a group that ended last season in shreds. By the end of 2012, the Royals rotation featured Bruce Chen (5.07 ERA / 1.37 WHIP), Luke Hochevar (5.37/1.42)...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Just when you think the Royals are out, they pull you back in again. And then the vicious cycle starts all over. As we take a deep breath at the All-Star Break, you can't help but wonder: Will the next 10 weeks become the stuff of legend? Or just another tease?

The Kansas City Royals have recalled left-handed pitcher Everett Teaford from their Triple-A Omaha minor league affiliate. Teaford has a solid 2.88 ERA in 23 games at AAA this season.
In a corresponding move, the Royals optioned left-handed reliever Donnie Joseph to Omaha. Joseph, who was recently recalled, only appeared in two games and provides Kansas City with pitching depth for...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Royals have claimed shortstop Pedro Ciriaco off outright waivers from the San Diego Padres, the team announced Tuesday.
Ciriaco, 27, has split this season between San Diego and Boston. The Red Sox traded him to the Padres on June 10 for a player to be named. He is batting .228 with eight stolen bases, three doubles, two triples and two homers in 51 games...
Royals catcher Sal Perez isn't likely to ever forget his first All-Star Game.
Not just because Perez got a hit -- a clean single down the right-field line -- on the very first pitch he saw in the top of the eighth inning of the American League All-Stars' 3-0 victory over the National League on Tuesday night at New York's Citi Field.
No, the special, once-in-a-lifetime...
I don't have to preach how important it is have starting pitching. I'm constantly on the look out for pitchers that can be bought cheap, some times even for free. Just like at a garage sale, looking for pitching takes a little bit of time and maybe just a drive by to see if something catches your eye.
