Royals righty Edinson Volquez falls short in loss to Tigers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals starter Edinson Volquez was good Saturday night. Just not good enough.

Detroit southpaw David Price was simply better than Volquez, who allowed two runs on five hits in six innings with three walks and four strikeouts.

"I'll take it," Volquez told MLB.com after his performance, which followed a five-game suspension. "But the biggest thing for us is wins. [Price] was better than me. We all know what he can do. He's not a surprise. He competes and throws a lot of strikes."

His No. 1 nemesis was Tigers second-spot hitter Ian Kinsler, who drove in both runs with a groundout in the third and single in the fifth.

Volquez will hope for a worse performance from his pitching foe Thursday against reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and the Indians.

Royals SS Alcides Escobar placed on 7-day disabled list
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals second baseman Alcides Escobar was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list on Friday. Escobar has been out since getting hit in the head by a pitch Wednesday.

Escobar is not 100 percent and the team didn't want to risk any setbacks, manager Ned Yost said Friday. The results of Escobar's concussion test were not in by Friday afternoon, but Yost said Escobar wouldn't pass it, per MLB.com.

Escobar is eligible to come off the disabled list May 7 vs. Cleveland. Christian Colon started a second straight game at shortstop Friday in Escobar's absence and will likely see the bulk of starts while Escobar is sidelined.
