    • Lovelady was optioned by the Royals on Monday. Lovelady made one appearance in the Royals' first three games, allowing a run on a solo homer in his lone inning Sunday. He'll make way on the roster for Ryan O'Hearn, who was activated from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.

    • Lovelady mentioned that he is now healthy after having surgery on his right knee in October, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. Lovelady made 25 appearances for the Royals during the 2019 season, owning a 7.65 ERA, 1.90 WHIP and 17:8 K:BB across 20 innings. The 24-year-old reliever has steadily climbed the minor-league ladder since being selected in the 10th round of the 2016 draft by Kansas City. Lovelady will be among a large group of pitching prospects battling for a spot in a Royals bullpen during spring training.
