Royals yet to decide Brandon Finnegan's role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Royals have yet to decide whether to use Brandon Finnegan as a reliever with the major-league team or continue his development as a starter in the minors, MLB.com reports.

"It's not a decision we have to make right now," general manager Dayton Moore said. "We'll just have to see how it all plays out."

Finnegan gave up just one earned run in seven innings as a reliever last season while striking out 10, and the team could choose to keep him in the bullpen in order to make another World Series push.

"We [have] a chance to compete," manager Ned Yost said, "and you want to take your best players when you have a chance to compete."
