News
Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer could go for another X-ray Thursday, according to the Kansas City Star.

Hosmer was expected to be pushed back longer after last week's X-ray didn't show the improvement the team wanted. Hosmer was expected to wait until the team's next homestand to have his next X-ray. He's been out since July 31 with a hand injury.

News
Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was hurt by an error Wednesday against the Rockies.

Duffy allowed five runs, one earned, on five hits over seven innings of work. He struck out six and walked one. Duffy was pitching well until the sixth inning. Up until that point, he had allowed just one run on three hits. Things looked promising to start the sixth, as Duffy quickly recorded the first two outs. He would have been out of the inning with no damage, but the third baseman's throwing error put a man on base. Duffy then loaded the bases on a single and walk. With the bases juiced, Duffy gave up a grand slam to Matt McBride.

With the loss, Duffy dropped to 8-11. He’ll take on the Twins in his next start.

Royals closer Greg Holland picked up a one-out save against the Rockies Tuesday.

Holland was brought into the game to put out the fire. The Royals entered the ninth up by five runs, but nearly melted down. With two runs already plated, and two men on base, Holland was brought in to finish out the game. He induced a fly out against the only batter he faced to end the threat. It was Holland's 39th save of the season.

An MRI on Royals catcher Salvador Perez came back clean, according to MLB.com.

Perez has been dealing with knee issues, but both he and manager Ned Yost have been adamant the injury is not serious. Perez first complained of tightness Monday, but played in Tuesday's game.

News
Royals pitcher James Shields turned in a strong start Tuesday against the Rockies.

Shields gave up two runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Shields proved to be hittable early on. After giving up two singles to open the game, Shields induced a run-scoring double-play. Nolan Arenado would also single during the frame, but Shields was able to work around it. Arenado would come back to haunt Shields in the fifth, hitting a solo home run to left center. Shields threw 94 pitches during the start.

With the win, Shields improved the 12-6. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.

After opening the game with six straight scoreless innings, Vargas gave up his only run in the seventh. Oswaldo Arcia managed to muscle a 2-2 pitch out to right for the solo shot. Other than that, Vargas did a great job keeping the Twins off the bases. 

With the win, Vargas improved to 10-5. He’ll take on the Rangers in his next start.
