News
Minor (shoulder) threw a live batting practice session Sunday, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Minor indicated he felt good during the session, but he might be required to face hitters once more before the Royals clear him to start a rehab assignment. The left-hander had previously been taking part in a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha back in May before shoulder fatigue set in, but the issue appears to be behind him now.

News
Dyson is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio Kansas City reports.

Paulo Orlando will shift over to center, opening the door for Brett Eibner in right, with the Royals facing a lefty starter (Cole Hamels) for the first time since the All-Star break. Dyson has hit safely in five of seven games since the intermission, including Monday when he smacked a grand slam -- his first home run of the season.

News
Davis worked around a hit and struck out one en route to his 21st save of the season Friday against the Rangers.

Davis, who has made 88 career starts in his eight-year career, had just 20 saves total entering the season. He's now got more than that in 2016 alone, as the veteran has converted 21 of his 23 chances to close the door on opponents.

News
Duffy (6-1) pitched 6.2 innings Friday, allowing one run, four hits and two walks while striking out four Rangers in the win.

Duffy continued the dominance he's shown through most of his starts this season. Despite beginning the season as a reliever, Duffy has made the most of his starting role and is now on pace to win double-digit games for the first time in his six-year career. The southpaw's only mistake Friday was solo shot given up to Rougned Odor, who is third in homers among AL second baseman. Duffy has been a pleasant surprise this year, and until he falters, owners should feel safe deploying him regardless of the matchup.

Edinson Volquez, #36

WLIPERABBK

News
Volquez allowed just one run with three strikeouts and three walks across six strong innings Sunday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.

Volquez was effective Sunday, inducing 13 ground-ball outs, and he was on the hook for the win until he was finally scored upon in the sixth inning, just before he was removed from the game. Volquez reduced his earned runs against for the fourth consecutive outing, tossing his third consecutive quality start, and he lowered his season ERA to 4.56. He is scheduled to take on the same Rangers club on the road Friday.

Injuries
Ribs - Expected to be out until at least Jul 28 (Updated - 7/24/16)
News
Ventura (6-8) allowed three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out five over five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Rangers.

Ventura held the Royals scoreless through three innings before being touched up for three runs between the fourth and fifth innings, and he received very little run support, leading to his eighth loss of the season. He's now held opponents to three or fewer runs in each of his last three starts, and his ERA is at 4.99. He'll make his next start Thursday at the Rangers.

Hamstring - Expected to be out until at least Jul 28 (Updated - 7/22/16)
News
Cain (hamstring) ran on Friday and said he "felt great", Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

It's positive news for Cain as he is heading in the right direction as he nears the end of his rehab process. The 30-year-old will run again on Sunday and if he reports positively, will begin a rehab assignment on Monday. The outfielder was starting to hit his stride before landing on the DL at the end of June, slashing .340/.354/.447 in his last 12 games.

News
Merrifield is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio Kansas City reports.

Merrifield has already lost his spot in the top third of the lineup and his playing time is now trending in the wrong direction, as Saturday's absence marks his fourth in the team's last seven games. He's batting just .180/.255/.260 for the month of July. Christian Colon will get the nod at second base Saturday.

News
Perez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

It's a well-earned day off for Perez, who has been in the lineup for every game since July 4. Drew Butera will fill in for him behind the plate. The time to rest and recovery could prove helpful with Perez stuck in a 2-for-23 slump over his last six contests.

News
Colon has driven in five runs over his last four games.

Although he is hitting just .167 in July, Colon has already driven in more runs than any month prior combined. Even with his recent hot streak, however, Colon will have difficulty finding consistent playing time behind Whit Merrifield and Alcides Escobar.
