Posted April 15, 2012 on AP on Fox
Eds. APNewsNow. The Kansas City Royals have recalled right-handed reliever Louis Coleman from Triple-A Omaha. The Royals made the move before playing the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, and now have a 13-man pitching staff to bolster an overworked bullpen. To make room for Coleman on the roster, the Royals optioned outfielder Jarrod Dyson to Omaha. Coleman, a 2009 fifth-round draft pick from LSU, had a 1.69 earned run average and a save in three appearances with Omaha. He allowed three hits and struck out four in 5 1-3 innings. He was 1-4 with a 2.87 ERA in 48 relief appearances as a rookie last year.

Will Ned Yost Make It To The End Of The Season?

While the Royals are 3rd in the Al Central with 3 wins and 4 loses. The question still remains, that if the Royals do not reach .500, will David Glass and Dayton Moore fire Ned Yost. I believe that they will have to fire him, to save the franchise. I don't think the Kansas City Royals can handle another losing season. If we only win 71 games, like last year, he will not be back...

Chris Getz struggles sliding into second

In the bottom of the first inning of the Kansas City Royals' 13-7 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, Chris Getz put on a sliding clinic of how NOT to dive head-first into the keystone sack. With Eric Hosmer batting after a Getz single, Getz attempted to steal twice, but both times Hosmer wasted the pitch and Getz would have to return to first. Both times, though, Getz...

How to Worry About the Royals

The past weekend did not go well for the Kansas City Royals. They were not only swept during their opening series at home by division rival Cleveland, but the sweep was pretty humiliating. Although the Royals at least managed to make a game of it (including the obligatory Yunibomb) on Saturday, all three games exposed Kansas City’s starting pitching. The Royals do not get any respite...

Royals Fans shouldn’t Expect too much from Hochevar

Remember way back in 2006 when the Kansas City Royals draft Luke Hochevar #1 overall? Remember the hype from the Kansas City sports community? Hochevar was first drafted in 39th round of the 2002 draft, 1,191st overall, by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Luke decided to go to college, attending University of Tennessee. Hochevar was later drafted in 2005, again by the Dodgers. This...

What do we know?

The Kansas City Royals are a week into their 2012 campaign. Seven games is not a large sample size. However, there are some things you can infer from the Royals past behavior during previous seasons under the current administration. I’m going to make an attempt at discerning what we know about the Royals already, and what I’m not sure about. Since Luke Hochevar got the start...

Box Score: Cleveland Indians 13 – Kansas City Royals 7

Break up those Wahoos.  This win makes it three in a row, and puts the team back to the even-water mark for the year.

Royals must improve offense to compete in AL

Friday's Royals' opener obviously was lost early when center fielder Jarrod Dyson misplayed a fly ball with two outs, allowing the Indians to eventually come up with four additional runs during a seven-run, punch-in-the-gut first inning. But here's the thing: If the Royals are going to hang around in the American League Central throughout this summer, they are going...
