Royals OF Alex Rios confident he will hit for power in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Alex Rios is coming off a down season offensively in 2014, particularly in the power department as he hit just four home runs in 131 games with the Rangers.

Injuries had a lot to do with Rios' offensive decline last season, but he fully expects his power swing to return in 2015, per the Associated Press.

"I played through the second half of the season with two injuries, actually. I had a bad ankle and my thumb was swollen up and I had to get surgery," Rios said. "I believe it did affect me. I didn't want to use it as an excuse, but I really believe it affected my performance during the second half. I believe if I was healthy, I could have done better."

Kauffman Stadium is not an ideal park for power hitters, as the club record for home runs is 36 and no Kansas City player has hit 30 home runs since Jermaine Dye had 33 in 2000. However, Rios is confident he will be able to hit for power at Kauffman Stadium.

"You know what, in my career I've been able to hit for power -- gap-to-gap power -- and I think this is the right ballpark to do this type of thing," Rios said. "I think this is a ballpark that all of us as offensive players can take advantage of because of how the gaps are."

Royals' Moore: Alex Rios capable of hitting 40 doubles at Kauffman
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals general manager Dayton Moore told MLB Network Radio on Thursday that he feels Kauffman Stadium will be great for outfielder Alex Rios, who was signed to a one-year deal in the offseason.

"We tried to acquire Torii Hunter. When that fell through, with Alex Rios, we felt he fit our ballpark and style of play," Moore said. "He is capable of hitting 40 doubles."

Rios has hit .271 with a .335 on-base percentage, .429 slugging percentage, .763 OPS, three triples, five home runs, 12 doubles and 15 RBI in 53 career games at Kauffman Stadium.
