O'Hearn remains on the bench Tuesday against Cleveland.

O'Hearn has filled a regular role at times this season, but he doesn't appear to have one now, as he's started just one of the team's last six games. The Royals appear to be going with eight everyday starters while rotating players through their ninth lineup spot, with O'Hearn seemingly slipping behind Kyle Isbel and Hanser Alberto for that role. O'Hearn owns a .624 OPS on the season, the third straight season he's been at or below .650 in that category, so he's not making a strong case for everyday at-bats.
