Yost: Ben Zobrist to soon start at 2B over Omar Infante for Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It appears all but certain that light-hitting Omar Infante will be the odd man out of the Royals lineup when Alex Gordon returns from injury.

As expected, Ned Yost has stated that Ben Zobrist will play mostly second base when Gordon is ready, per the Kansas City Star.

Infante has not found his stride at the plate all season. The result is a .217 average, which if maintained would be the lowest of his career.

The versatile Zobrist, who can play all over the field, will likely continue to give others occasional days off as the Royals cruise to the division title.

Royals' Ben Zobrist breaks loose with two-tater Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals newcomer Ben Zobrist had a coming-out party of sorts Saturday in Toronto. After a rather quiet 1-for-8 start with his new team, he simply mashed.

Zobrist launched the festivities by launching a solo home run in the first inning. He doubled and scored in the sixth, then capped his wonderful day with a game-tying dinger in the eighth.

"For sure. It helps a ton," Zobrist said, per MLB.com. "The first couple of games, we don't win, so it's nice to be able to contribute to a win. I am just trying to do the little things and sometimes you get to do the bigger things."

His .470 slugging percentage is at its highest point since April 14.

Royals, Athletics agree on LF Ben Zobrist trade
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

The Royals and Athletics have agreed on a trade that would send left fielder Ben Zobrist to Kansas City, CBS Baseball Insider Jon Heyman is reporting.

Kansas City sent one of its top prospects, Sean Manaea , to Oakland in the swap. Manaea was a concensus top-100 prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America. In addition, the Royals also parted ways with pitcher Aaron Brooks in the trade.

For the A's, Zobrist will initially play in the outfield to help fill the void of the injured Alex Gordon. Upon Gordon's return, Zobrist can shift into the infield.
