News
Hochevar has given up six earned runs in July, more than any month prior this season.

Since the start of July, Hochevar's ERA has jumped from 2.90 to 3.86. He allowed those six earned runs in just 6.1 innings pitched.

Injuries
Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least Aug 7 (Updated - 7/24/16)
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.

Wade Davis, #17
Year-to-date Stats

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
Gee has been confirmed as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Angels, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

Manager Ned Yost had been undecided about Tuesday's starter, but he confirmed Monday afternoon that it will indeed be Gee. That means the Royals will pivot away from Brian Flynn, who was touched up for three earned runs in just 2.1 innings his last time out. Gee pitched 5.1 innings of relief in that contest, so the belief is that he'll be stretched out enough to be an effective option.

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
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
88124.14.564794
 
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.

Ribs - Expected to be out until at least Jul 28 (Updated - 7/24/16)
News
Ventura (ribs) said he isn't injured after taking an Adrian Beltre hit off the ribs, Christian Hardy of the Kansas City Star reports.

Ventura left the game in the fifth inning of Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Rangers. He and manager Ned Yost both said he will be "fine," but he should still be considered day-to-day until he makes his next start Thursday.

News
Cain (hamstring) will report to Triple-A Omaha to begin a rehab stint Tuesday, Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star reports.

Cain has been steadily progressing from his injury, already partaking in sprinting and hitting drills. The former All-Star should be back in the Royals' lineup soon, assuming his rehab assignment goes accordingly.

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
Kennedy (6-9) allowed four runs on six hits and three walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a loss Monday against the Angels.

Kennedy didn't allow a home run for the first time since May 30, but it didn't matter. He didn't have his control and was constantly pitching from behind (12 first-pitch strikes to 25 hitters). His 26 home runs allowed are still the most in the major leagues, two clear of both Cleveland's Josh Tomlin and Toronto's R.A. Dickey, and for that reason, it remains next to impossible to trust him in any given start.

Position Breakdown

News
Perez hit a two-run home run in a 1-for-4 game in a loss Monday against the Angels.

Perez was just 3-for-24 with eight strikeouts and no extra-base hits over his last seven games, so he badly needed something to get him out of that slump. Sunday marked his first day off since the All-Star break, and the rest might have been exactly what he needed.
