Royals' Jorge Soler: MRI reveals grade one oblique strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soler's MRI on Monday revealed he has a grade one oblique strain, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Soler's MRI confirmed what was reported earlier, and the 25-year-old will be out of activity for the next week before slowly being eased back into baseball activities, verifying that he will miss at least some time to start the season. His absence to begin the season could open up a spot for speedster Terrance Gore to make the team as a reserve outfielder, while Paulo Orlando should see the bulk of time in right field as Soler's primary replacement.

Royals' Chris Young: Sharp in return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Young (neck) tossed a perfect inning against the Brewers on Saturday.

Young returned to action after missing his last start with a sore neck, and the 37-year-old continued his solid spring. He's now sporting a 1.98 ERA across 13.2 innings. Young will primarily work out of the bullpen next season, while him and Travis Wood will also be available when the Royals need a spot starter, though it's yet to be determined who would be the first option.

Royals' Billy Burns: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burns was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Joel Goldberg of FOX Sports Kansas City reports.

It was revealed earlier in the day that Jorge Soler (oblique) could be forced to open the season on the DL, but Terrance Gore rather than Burns would be first in line to win an Opening Day roster spot in the outfield if that materializes. After a down 2016 campaign that resulted in the Athletics trading him away to the Royals at midseason, Burns will have to reestablish value in the minors if he hopes to earn another look with the big club.

Royals' Peter O'Brien: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Brien was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

O'Brien is slashing .294/.362/.765 with a team-leading seven homers and 14 RBI over 51 at-bats this spring, but he was never considered too serious of a candidate to crack the Opening Day roster. Even with Jorge Soler expected to hit the DL to begin the season, O'Brien's lack of a defensive home -- along with his struggles to make contact (team-leading 19 strikeouts) -- ultimately kept him off the 25-man.

Royals' Scott Alexander: Shipped to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Monday, Rustin Dodd of The Kansas City Star reports.

Alexander has pitched well this spring (1.93 ERA and 0.86 WHIP across 9.1 innings), but with Mike Minor and Travis Wood representing the top-two left-handed options in the bullpen, the 27-year-old will have to start his season in Omaha and work for a call-up. He saw some time with the Royals last season, and he should see another opportunity in the big league sometime in 2017.
