Bruce Chen set to start Sunday in place of Jason Vargas
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Veteran left-hander Bruce Chen is set to start Sunday for the Royals against visiting Cleveland, again in place of Jason Vargas, who is still recovering from an appendectomy.

Chen filled in quite admirably Tuesday night by yielding one run in five innings against the White Sox and earning the victory.

Billy Butler out, Danny Valencia in Wednesday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Royals have benched designated hitter Billy Butler on Wednesday against the White Sox in favor of Danny Valencia. Butler continues to struggle, particularly in regard to his power numbers. He has just one home run since June 14 and three doubles since June 19. His .267/.320/.347 stat line pales in comparison to those he has compiled in previous seasons.

Eric Hosmer finds his way back into Wednesday lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Despite earlier reports to the contrary and an ailing hand, Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer has been placed in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

Hosmer, who had been sidelined since getting hit in the hand by a Jon Lester pitch Sunday, has expressed concern about his ability to maximize his power potential at the plate.

Mike Moustakas homers twice on Greek Heritage Night
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas finally had a night to talk about Tuesday against the White Sox, homering twice in a 7-1 win. Coincidentally, it came on the same night the White Sox were hosting Greek Heritage Night at the ballpark.

"Oh, I knew," Moustakas said of the promotion. "I was telling everybody that today was my day. It just ended up working out that way."

Moustakas finished 3 for 5 with three RBI. He hit a solo home run off Scott Carroll leading off the second inning and a two-run homer off Eric Surkamp in the eighth inning. 

He is batting .286 (14 for 49) with four home runs and 10 RBI in his last 15 games.

"He's starting to swing the bat pretty good," manager Ned Yost said of Moustakas. "We've seen him in spurts, it doesn't matter who's pitching. When he's right, he's putting good swings on the ball.

"Tonight he was really seeing the ball good, he was in a good position to hit and he was really driving the ball."

Report: Eric Hosmer won't play Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer appears destined to miss his third straight game Wednesday against the White Sox. Ned Yost had doubted he would play at all in the series, according to the Kansas City Star.

Hosmer, who has been out since getting hit in the hand by a Jon Lester pitch Sunday, owns a 16-game hitting streak in which he has hit .413.

"If it was just pain, I could tolerate it," Hosmer said. "But when I grip it and try to use max strength, it just shuts down."
