Yost: James Shields set to start Game 5 for Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ned Yost has declared strongly that Royals ace James Shields is locked in as the Game 5 starter in the World Series despite the recent struggles of the right-hander.

Shields has yielded 11 earned runs on 23 hits in 14 postseason innings. He bottomed out Tuesday in the World Series opener against San Francisco, getting knocked out after three innings having surrendered five earned runs.

Royals prospect Kyle Zimmer shut down with shoulder issue
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Promising Royals right-handed pitching prospect Kyle Zimmer felt tightness in his shoulder during a start in the Arizona Fall League last week. He has been shut down for the rest of the offseason, per the Kansas City Star.

Zimmer, who has 187 strikeouts in 152 2/3 minor league innings since 2012, has struggled to maintain health with his shoulder. He was limited to just 4 2/3 innings pitched in 2014.

Royals C Salvador Perez homers in Game 1 World Series loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals catcher Salvador Perez went 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 7-1 loss to the Giants in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday.

Perez struck the only blow the Royals could manage on offense, finally getting a run off Giants starter Madison Bumgarner after he allowed only two hits through six scoreless innings. By the time of Perez's bomb, the Royals were dug in a hole from which they couldn't escape. It's a rare sign of life from the catcher's bat, as he's hit just .135/.158/.216 in 37 postseason at-bats despite the Royals racking up win after win in the first three rounds.

James Shields comes up short in Royals' Game 1 World Series loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher James Shields was roughed up in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday, taking a loss after surrendering five earned runs on seven hits and one walk in three-plus innings while striking out one in his team's 7-1 defeat against the Giants.

Shields (1-1) hadn't been having a great postseason despite the Royals' impressive run of wins, giving up 10 earned runs in 16 innings heading into his Game 1 start. His night turned south immediately Tuesday, as the Giants followed up a one-out, RBI double with a two-run home run to take a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Shields retired seven straight heading into the fourth, where he opened the inning with a double, walk and RBI single to get the hook. The loss, which was the first of the postseason for the Royals, puts the AL pennant winner in a 1-0 hole going into Game 2 Wednesday in Kansas City.
