Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez strikes out eight in outing Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Edinson Volquez surrendered an opening-inning home run, but settled down to throw eight strikeouts over five innings Sunday against the Cubs. Manager Ned Yost was happy to finally see why the team signed him this offseason, reports MLB.com.

"I don't see him struggling," Yost said before the game. "The importance I place on Spring Training performance and the importance you place on Spring Training performance are two different things. I'm looking for him to gain arm strength and I'm looking for him to refine his mechanics where he's down [in the strike zone] consistently. To me, he's right on schedule."

Volquez allowed two runs on six hits, making his ERA now 7.79.

Royals' Joe Blanton unsure if he'll opt out of deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Joe Blanton is unsure of whether he'll opt out of his minor-league deal with the team or not, the Kansas City Star reports.

"We’ll see when that comes," Blanton said. "I don’t know. I haven’t really thought about it yet, to be honest with you."

Blanton can opt out of his deal on April 1 or on May 15 if he's not on the major-league roster. He has allowed three earned runs in 9 2/3 innings this spring.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Alex Rios is back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cubs.

Rios jammed his thumb Wednesday, and while he said Friday that the thumb had improved, he expects to have to manage the injury all season. The outfielder also dealt with the same injury in 2014.

Rios has hit .333/.349/.619 with three home runs in 42 spring at-bats.

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy posts uneasy start Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy gave up four runs in five innings of work with seven strikeouts against the Diamondbacks Saturday. Duffy was dominant early on, striking out six in three scoreless innings. Duffy likes his progression through spring training, reports MLB.com.

"I feel like it's building perfectly," he said. "The ball has been popping for me. I feel the best I have in years [springs]. I got a little fastball happy [today]. I tried to double-up with fastballs to Pollock and Goldschmidt and it hurt me. You get happy you throw one by them, and then the next thing you leave one over the plate."

Manager Ned Yost was so-so about the outing.

"He was OK," Yost said. "He had a very good first three innings and then just started getting the ball up a little. The slider he threw to Pollock for the homer wasn't a real sharp slider."
