Royals' Cheslor Cuthbert: Not in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cuthbert is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, Josh Vernier of 610 Sports Radio reports.

Cuthbert has gone just 4-for-18 with six strikeouts over the last four games, so he'll get the night off as Christian Colon gets the nod to start at the hot corner. Look for Cuthbert to return to the lineup Wednesday evening against the Yankees.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Fifth rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (elbow) pitched five innings Saturday for Triple-A Omaha, allowing four runs while striking out six batters and walking none.

Vargas started his rehab assignment on Aug. 7, so he'll be required to join the Royals' 25-man roster in early September because minor league rehab stints can only be 30 days long. With expanded rosters, his end-of-season role with the team is unknown, but before the injury, he was a regular member of the 2015 Royals' rotation.

Royals' Kris Medlen: Fourth rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Medlen (shoulder) made a two-inning rehab stint Saturday for Triple-A Omaha, allowing zero runs while striking out two batters and walking none.

The 30-year-old has not thrown over 35 pitches in any of his August rehab appearances. His rehab is expected to end mid-September, however, and his role with the Royals is unknown. Before the injury, Medlen started six early-season games where he struggled with a 7.77 ERA.

Royals' Dillon Gee: Picks up sixth win over Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gee (6-7) allowed one run on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six innings in a win Monday over the Yankees.

This is the ideal Gee start -- he pitched to contact, avoided walks, and kept the ball in the yard. Gee induced 11 flyouts, using spacious Kauffman Stadium to his advantage. He induced just two swinging strikeouts in the process, though, and his inability to miss bats makes him vulnerable to home runs and big innings, and that is the main reason he owns a mediocre 4.37 ERA.

Royals' Alcides Escobar: Homers in win over Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar hit a three-run homer, his fourth, in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's win over the Yankees.

After homering twice in his first 126 games, Escobar now has gone yard twice in his past five games, a stretch in which he has also doubled thrice and knocked in seven runs. This isn't Escobar's game, of course. With four home runs, he topped his marks from 2014 and 2015 and is now just one off from his career high set back in 2011.
