Royals' Eric Hosmer: Homers in loss to Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, his 14th of the year, in Friday's 8-3 loss to the Rangers.

After hitting 10 longballs in the first two months of the season, Hosmer has sent just four over the fences since May 31. The first baseman, who is now hitting a season-low .282, is just one of many Royals who have cooled down in recent weeks. Hosmer is still on pace to set a career high in home runs, but his fantasy value is likely at a season low in most formats.

Royals' Edinson Volquez: Drops ninth game of season Friday versus Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Volquez (8-9) pitched six innings, allowing six runs (five earned), nine hits and two walks while striking out five Rangers in Friday's loss.

Volquez's inconsistent season continued Friday, allowing four-plus runs for the ninth time in his 22 starts this season. After beginning the year with three straight wins, Volquez has put consecutive wins together just once since April 21. His 4.56 ERA and 1.39 WHIP is hardly what owners bought in for this year. The righty will look to rebound in his next start Wednesday against the Rays.

Royals' Luke Hochevar: Will likely need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hochevar (shoulder) will likely require surgery to deal with his thoracic outlet syndrome, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Hochevar reported numbness in his fingers recently and was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition caused by compression of a neurovascular bundle in the shoulder region. He saw a specialist in recent days and the first diagnosis is season-ending thoracic outlet surgery. The veteran relief man will get a second opinion but it seems highly likely that he'll undergo the knife and will miss the rest of the 2016 season.

Royals' Paulo Orlando: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Orlando is not in the lineup for Friday's game against Texas, FSKC's Joel Goldberg reports.

With the return of Lorenzo Cain off the disabled list, Paulo Orlando will get a day off for the first time in 12 games. Cain will get the nod at right, and Jarrod Dyson takes over in center as the Royals face A.J. Griffin and the Rangers. Orlando could end up losing a little time on the field because of Cain's return, but it would be hard to justify with the way he has been playing recently.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Returns to lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez (illness) is back in the lineup against the Rangers on Friday, Joel Goldberg of FSKC reports.

Perez was scratched from the lineup Wednesday as he went down with the flu, but will be back behind the plate for Friday's contest. He will be catching Edinson Volquez and batting sixth.
