News
Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas finally had a night to talk about Tuesday against the White Sox, homering twice in a 7-1 win. Coincidentally, it came on the same night the White Sox were hosting Greek Heritage Night at the ballpark.

"Oh, I knew," Moustakas said of the promotion. "I was telling everybody that today was my day. It just ended up working out that way."

Moustakas finished 3 for 5 with three RBI. He hit a solo home run off Scott Carroll leading off the second inning and a two-run homer off Eric Surkamp in the eighth inning. 

He is batting .286 (14 for 49) with four home runs and 10 RBI in his last 15 games.

"He's starting to swing the bat pretty good," manager Ned Yost said of Moustakas. "We've seen him in spurts, it doesn't matter who's pitching. When he's right, he's putting good swings on the ball.

"Tonight he was really seeing the ball good, he was in a good position to hit and he was really driving the ball."

News
The Royals have benched designated hitter Billy Butler on Wednesday against the White Sox in favor of Danny Valencia. Butler continues to struggle, particularly in regard to his power numbers. He has just one home run since June 14 and three doubles since June 19. His .267/.320/.347 stat line pales in comparison to those he has compiled in previous seasons.

Injuries
Hand - Questionable for July 24 vs. Cleveland (Updated - 7/23/14)
News
Royals pitcher Eric Hosmer left Wednesday's game due to "decreased grip strength in his hand," according to the Kansas City Star.

Hosmer received three plate appearances during the game before being pulled in the eighth inning. He's been dealing with a hand issue all week. Hosmer took a pitch off the hand Sunday against Jon Lester, and hadn't been in the lineup until Wednesday. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined with the injury.

News
Royals pitcher Danny Duffy took a loss Saturday despite giving up just two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings and striking out two in his team's 2-1 defeat against the Red Sox.

Duffy (5-10) is 1-5 in his last six starts, but he's surrendered no more than two earned runs in five of his outings during that stretch. The lack of offensive support has led him to post a terrible record alongside a 2.66 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 69:32 K:BB ratio in 91 1/3 innings. Duffy is scheduled to take on the Indians Thursday.

News
Royals flamethrower Yordano Ventura had not pitched this season without registering at least one strikeout - until Sunday.

Ventura didn't miss too many Boston bats at Fenway Park. The result was continuing struggles, the lowering of his record to 7-8 and the raising of his ERA to 3.59. Ventura gave up six earned runs on nine hits in just 4 1/3 innings. The big blow was a two-run homer by David Ross in the fourth.

The rookie, who has surrendered 10 earned runs in his last 9 1/3 innings, is set to start again Friday against Cleveland.

Veteran left-hander Bruce Chen is set to start Sunday for the Royals against visiting Cleveland, again in place of Jason Vargas, who is still recovering from an appendectomy.

Chen filled in quite admirably Tuesday night by yielding one run in five innings against the White Sox and earning the victory.

News
Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie took a loss Monday after giving up three earned runs on five hits and three walks in six innings and striking out five in his team's 3-1 defeat against the White Sox.

Guthrie (5-9) has lost each of his last three outings, but Monday's quality start was his first of July. After surrendering two runs in the bottom of the first inning, the Kansas City starter was able to limit the White Sox to one run over the rest of the outing. Guthrie owns a 4.56 ERA and 80:35 K:BB ratio in 126 1/3 innings.

News
Royals manager Ned Yost said Tuesday that it's "unlikely" pitcher Jason Vargas will return from the disabled list Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.

Vargas has been out since July 8 while recovering from an appendectomy, but it was believed he may be ready to return Sunday after completing a 20-pitch bullpen session yesterday. However, it looks like he'll be sidelined for a little while longer. Vargas is 8-4 with a 3.31 ERA and 82:29 K:BB ratio in 125 innings.
