    Paulo Orlando, Moises Sierra battling for last Royals' roster spot

    The last man on the Royals' roster will be either Paulo Orlando or Moises Sierra . The two are battling for the fifth outfielder spot. With just over a week to go in spring training, Orlando seems to have the advantage. "He's done everything well. He plays solid defense in all three outfielder spots. He's a true center fielder," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan. "He's swinging the bat really well. He has made great strides the last couple of years. He's athletic and can run. He fits our profile." Orlando is hitting .367 this spring, 47 points higher than Sierra.

    Royals manager could use extra bench player on roster this season

    Royals manager Ned Yost could head into the regular season with a bullpen made up of seven players, reports MLB.com. "It's probably seven," Yost said. "You ask yourself, 'What wins you more games early? The extra guy on the bench? The baserunner late or defensive replacement, or the extra arm?' It hasn't been set. These conversations go day to day. You look at the ability to mix and match offensively versus carrying the extra arm." With an extra roster spot available in that scenario, Yost could give the spot to another bench player. Yost said he'd prefer that to be an outfielder and could come down to Moises Sierra and Paulo Orlando.
