Royals LF Alex Gordon unlikely to pick up 2016 option
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals veteran left fielder Alex Gordon will likely not pick up his player option for 2016, which will result in free agency, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, who indicated that the team cannot afford to pay what he is currently worth.

Gordon has been steady and productive at the plate and a premier defender. His market value might decrease if he continues to hit as he has recently, but that is highly unlikely given his track record. He is on a 5-for-29 slide without a multi-hit game since May 15.

Royals OF Alex Rios set to return to lineup Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It has been seven weeks since outfielder Alex Rios stepped onto the field with the Royals. Now it's down to just one day.

Ned Yost has announced that Rios will return to the lineup Saturday against the host Cubs, MLB.com has reported.

Rios has been out with a fractured left hand. He will replace Paulo Orlando as the starter in left field. He slammed nine hits in 28 at-bats before going down, then went 3-for-17 with Triple-A Omaha in his rehab assignment.

Royals DH Kendrys Morales forced to sit Friday at Wrigley
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Kendrys Morales has been penciled in as the designated hitter for the Royals in every game this season. But when there is no DH, there is no Morales.

Such is the case Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, where Morales is out of the lineup against the Cubs. It remains to be seen if he finds his way into the outfield during the three-game weekend series or if he's used strictly as a pinch-hitter.

His bat will be missed. Morales owns a fine .306/.364/.489 slash line and his 37 RBI is tied for third in the American League.

Royals prospect Sean Manaea has setback in rehab
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A groin issue has Royals pitching prospect Sean Manaea stalled in his rehab from an abdomen strain, the Kansas City Star has reported.

He must now wait until third week of June to join Double-A Northern Arkansas.

Manaea has not pitched since last August. He put up some impressive numbers at Class A Wilmington a year ago, allowing just 102 hits and fanning 146 in 121 2/3 innings despite a 7-8 record.

Royals lefty Brandon Finnegan to join rotation at Triple-A
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals assistant general manager J.J. Picollo has revealed that promosing left-hander Brandon Finnegan is set to join the starting rotation at Triple-A Omaha, per the Kansas City Star. It can be assumed that the team is grooming him for the same role in the majors, but he remains a bullpen option if promoted this season.

Finnegan had been serving as a reliever in the big leagues, including a stunning stint in 2014 in which he helped the team win the American League pennant.

He had started eight of 19 games in the minors, including three of six this season. But all 12 of his appearances in the majors have been out of the bullpen.
