Royals get OF Jonny Gomes in trade with Braves
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Royals have acquired veteran outfielder Jonny Gomes in a trade with the Braves, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. In 82 games with Atlanta this season, Gomes was hitting .223 with seven home runs and 22 RBI.

He will give the Royals some depth in the outfield and off the bench as they get ready for a likely postseason run. Gomes has been to the playoffs several times in his career, and is 7 for 49 lifetime in the postseason. He won a World Series ring with the Red Sox in 2013.

In return, the Braves will receive minor-league infielder Luis Valenzuela, Heyman adds. Valenzuela has been playing with the Royals' rookie league team and Class A affiliate in Lexington. Overall this season, he is batting .364/.385/.502 in 209 at-bats.

Royals SP Danny Duffy goes only five in no-decision Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tossing 99 pitches in a five-and-out is not often going to result in a victory. It didn't Sunday at Tampa Bay for Royals starter Danny Duffy.

Duffy had to settle for a no-decision when he surrendered two runs on seven hits with two walks and six strikeouts.

An RBI single by Joey Butler in the first and solo blast by Brandon Guyer in the third put both runs on the board.

A high pitch count has prevented Duffy from racking up more than one quality start in his last five outings. His ERA rests at a respectable 4.11.

Royals' Alex Gordon to play 4-5 games per week
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

When Royals outfielder Alex Gordon is activated from the disabled list, manager Ned Yost said Gordon will play four to five games per week, reports the Kansas City Star.

Gordon has been rehabbing his injured groin at Triple-A and is expected to be activated next week.

"He feels really good," Yost said. "He's running at about 90 percent, which is good. He's taking walks, fouling off pitches, getting hits. He's doing a lot of really good things. I just want to make sure that he's ready when he gets here."
