Royals' Paulo Orlando: Smacks four hits Thursday versus Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orlando went 4-for-4 and scored a run in Thursday's loss to the Twins.

Orlando is trying to finish the season over .300. He helped his cause with his third four-hit performance of the year, raising his average to .307. Orlando doubled and scored in the second, doubled in the third and singled in the sixth and the eighth. The outfielder's sophomore campaign (.307/.335/.410) has been a surprisingly large improvement from his rookie season (.249/.269/.444).

Royals' Danny Duffy: Ends career year with no-decision Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy pitched 6.1 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three in a no-decision Thursday against the Twins.

Duffy, who became the team's ace since moving from the bullpen in May, made his last start Thursday and was strong for six innings, giving up one run. But he got tagged for four hits and three runs in the seventh before leaving with one out. Duffy finished the season 12-3 with a 3.51 ERA. The 27-year-old southpaw set career highs in innings pitched, strikeouts and wins.

Royals' Yordano Ventura: Listed as Friday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ventura (back) is listed as the probable starter for Friday's game against the Indians.

Lower-back tightness and spasms cut short Ventura's last outing after four innings, but he probably wasn't long for that game anyway (three runs allowed on 10 hits and two walks). It seems he made it through his between-starts bullpen session without any further complications, as he's set to make his final start of the 2016 campaign opposite lefty Ryan Merritt.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Perez is not in the lineup for Thursday's matchup against the Twins.

Perez has managed to go just 2-for-17 over the last four games, bringing his batting average down to .245 for the season. Drew Butera will start behind the dish while Perez gets the night off.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Tosses five scoreless to end lost season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas pitched five scoreless frames, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out six Twins in Wednesday's no-decision.

Making his third start since debuting in mid-September, the 33-year-old veteran delivered his best effort. Vargas spent 14 months rehabbing from a torn UCL, limiting him to action in just the final weeks of the 2016 regular season. He did not factor in any of his outings while managing a 2.25 ERA and 11 strikeouts over 12 innings. With the playoffs out of sight in Kansas City, Vargas must now embark on another long wait before getting a chance to toe the rubber again.
