Choosing the Kansas City Royals’ backup catcher

Kansas City Royals fans are excited that the return of stud catcher Salvy Perez to the Royals lineup is imminent.  This creates a potential problem on the roster because they traded for Humberto Quintero when Perez got hurt in Spring Training, giving up a legitimate pitching prospect to do so.  No good MLB roster is constructed with 3 players who can only catch or DH, so the...

The Young Royals Are Not Ready to Win

It is hard to be a Royals fan. For a generation, no Royals team has made a playoff appearance, truly contended, or even retained a perennial All Star. Aside from the fluke 2003 season, the Royals would be approaching, or even owning, the record for most consecutive losing seasons in professional sports. In short, Royals fans have endured one of the worst professional franchises of...

Red Alert: Paulino to have Tommy John Surgery

Are the Royals to blame? Felipe Paulino is expected to undergo Tommy John surgery after tearing his UCL during a rehab start for Northwest Arkansas according to Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star. This marks the fourth pitcher expected to be on the opening day roster to undergo this surgery (Soria, Duffy and Blake Wood the others). Combined with  John Lamb about this time last year...

Royals continue to struggle at bat vs. Cardinals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Here's a thought: Maybe we've got this narrative all screwed up. Maybe it's not all about the Tommy John surgeries (which, admittedly, don't help), or the yo-yo pitching lines of Luke Hochevar (although those don't help either), or the fact the bullpen keeps getting worked over like a rented mule. Maybe it's this: After Saturday's 8...

Royals put three in Futures Game

The future continues to look bright with no clouds for the Royals. The Royals will have blue-chip prospects Wil Myers, Jake Odorizzi and Yordano Ventura in the 14th annual All-Star Futures Game, which will be played July 8 at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals are the only organization in baseball to place three players in the Futures Game. This will be the second straight year for...

Developing: Blue Rocks Player Development Contract With the Royals at the End of the Season

While this probably isn't big news yet, The Wilmington Blue Rocks Player Development Contract with the Kansas City Royals ends after this season. The reason I don't think this will amount to anything is that the Royals and the Rocks have an outstanding relationship and from a geographical point of view, their are no Advanced A teams with contracts ending this year to move...

Royals lose Paulino to injury, get Perez off DL

Royals pitcher Felipe Paulino has a torn ligament in his right elbow, tempering the positive news that catcher Salvador Perez is finally coming off the disabled list.

Royals' Paulino has torn ligament in right elbow

Right-hander Felipe Paulino was hoping to be back in the Kansas City rotation Monday but instead likely won't return to the mound until July 2013. Paulino has a torn ligament in his right elbow and is apparently headed for Tommy John surgery. He will see Dr. Lewis Yocum for a second opinion. If Paulino has the season-ending surgery, he would be the fourth Royal to require...

Felipe Paulino Needs Tommy John Surgery

The Kansas City Royals have been dealt another injury blow as Felipe Paulino has been diagnosed with a torn UCL in his right elbow. Paulino will likely require season ending Tommy John surgery, joining fellow Royals pitchers Danny Duffy, Joakim Soria and Blake Woods to undergo the surgery in 2012. The news comes at a terrible time for Paulino, as the five year veteran is in the midst...

Lynn's All-Star hopes take hit

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Lance Lynn had hoped Sunday's start against the Royals would be his first of two appearances at Kauffman Stadium in the next few weeks. But after allowing a season-high six earned runs in 5 13 innings in the Cardinals' 11-6 win over the Royals on a steamy Midwest afternoon, Lynn might soon be able to make other plans for the upcoming All-Star break. ...

Royals waste four homers in 11-8 loss to St. Louis

Losing is always tough. Wasting four home runs in an 11-8 setback to St. Louis felt particularly galling to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. The loss gave the visitors a three-game sweep in Kauffman Stadium just a week after KC took two out of three on the Cardinals turf. ''It's real disappointing any time you drop three straight,'' said Mike Moustakas, the...

Cardinals-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Carlos Beltran admits it was an emotional time when the Kansas City Royals traded him eight years ago this weekend. However, it may be the Kauffman Stadium crowd that is feeling blue after he leaves town. Beltran returns to Kansas City for the first time Friday night when the St. Louis Cardinals open a three-game series against the Royals. After being drafted by Kansas...
