News
Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas showed a flash of life Wednesday, as he hit his first home run of the season in a 6-4 win over the Astros. Moustakas entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the 8th inning and came up with the game-winning hit in the 11th inning, with his first home run.

Moustakes is still hitting just .119/.213/.238 in 42 at-bats, so hopefully his first homer can at least get him going.

A pair of Royals relievers tossed side sessions Friday, as they continue their recoveries from injury. Tim Collins (elbow) and Francisley Bueno (hand) both threw their full complements of pitches, and manager Ned Yost told MLB.com he came away impressed with their progress.

"Collins felt great; Bueno still felt his finger on occasion on changeups, not fastballs or sliders," Yost said. "They're both making good progress."

 Both players are eligible to return from the disabled list Friday, though it is not clear if they will do so immediately.

News
Royals starting pitcher Bruce Chen was able to make his start, as expected, Saturday against the Twins, after being scratched from his previously scheduled outing with glute tightness.  

Chen made it through five innings and did not seem to be troubled much by the injury. He struggled even when healthy, however, allowing four runs on eight hits and four walks. He struck out six, which helped limited the damage despite allowing so many baserunners.

Chen got enough help offensively to earn the 5-4 win, thanks to a five-run fourth inning. He is now 1-1 with a 6.60 ERA heading into his next start, scheduled for Thursday in Cleveland.

Royals pitcher James Shields put together a dominant performance on Thursday, giving his team eight strong innings as he picked up his first win of the season against the Astros in Houston.

Shields (1-2) tossed four scoreless innings to start the game before surrendering a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning, his lone blemish of the night. He yielded one run on four hits and two walks while striking out 12 in a 5-1 win. He threw 107 pitches, 64 of which were strikes.

Shields lowered his ERA from 4.26 to 2.37 over his last two starts, allowing just two earned runs over his last 12 2/3 innings pitched. He will make his next start Tuesday in Cleveland.

News
Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie appeared to be on his way to his first loss of the season Wednesday against the Astros, but the bullpen and offense bailed him out in a 6-4 extra-innings win.

Guthrie was ultimately hurt by the long ball, as all four runs he allowed came on a pair of two-run homers. He was charged with four runs on six hits and a pair of walks over six innings, and left down 4-2. He struck out four while throwing 64 of 103 pitches for strikes.

The offense rallied to bail Guthrie out this time around, and he remains 2-0 through three starts. He carries a 4.34 ERA into his next start, set for Monday in Cleveland.

Vargas has allowed just two runs over his last 14 innings pitches, all coming against the Twins. He owns a 1.24 ERA along with a sterling 0.93 WHIP over his first four starts (29 innings). He'll be seeking his third win when he takes the hill Wednesday in Cleveland.
