News
Royals pitcher Kelvin Herrera was hung with a loss Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 7-5 defeat against the White Sox.

Though Herrera (3-3) was the pitcher charged with the loss, he wasn't the one who gave up the decisive hit, as the following pitcher surrendered a bases-loaded triple to turn a one-run lead into a two-run deficit. Herrera owns a 1.55 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 55:24 K:BB ratio in 64 innings after allowing his first runs since June 24, ending a string of 30 straight scoreless appearances.

News
Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk and a run scored Monday against the White Sox, which was enough to earn him a mention in my latest blog post chronicling the major happenings in Monday's games.

It doesn't seem like much on its own, but with that performance, he's now batting .321 (9 for 28) with two homers and a 1.049 OPS in his last eight games. Whoop-ti-do.

After the way his season has gone, he'd have to do something Herculean to convince us to draft him as a top 10 first baseman again next year. I'm talking a Ryan Zimmerman-in-2013-type correction so complete that we forget he was having a down year before it, as in a .380 batting average or so and half a dozen home runs. Real craziness.

But as we watch it all unfold, I think it's worth reminding everyone he's only 24. We probably have at least another five years of overreacting to every hot streak, wondering if it's a harbinger of more. And I remain convinced, given his pedigree and those stretches every other year when he appears oh so studly, that one day it will be.

Here's hoping he doesn't have that Herculean finish so we can get him for dirt cheap next year.

News
Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy will not start Tuesday night against the White Sox. Instead, Liam Hendriks will take the mound, while Duffy, who is working his way back from a shoulder injury, will pitch a simulated game, the Kansas City Star reports.

Duffy will now have missed two straight starts because of the issue. His next chance to return will come next Monday at Cleveland.
