    Pratto is not in Friday's lineup against the Red Sox.

    Pratto is hitting .103 with a 40 percent strikeout rate in 11 games this month, and things have gotten so bad that he's out of Friday's lineup even against a right-hander in Michael Wacha. Vinnie Pasquantino is starting at first base, while MJ Melendez is the designated hitter.

  • Royals' Nick Pratto: Launches solo home run

    Pratto went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Saturday's 12-2 win over the Tigers.

    Pratto launched a solo shot in the first inning to lead off the scoring. He would come around to score again in the fifth on a Kyle Isbel grand slam. It was Pratto's seventh homer since he was called up July 14. The rookie first baseman has seen his struggles this season including an eight-game hitless streak in August. Since then, he has gone 11-for-33 (.333), raising his season batting average from .163 to .206.

  • Royals' Nick Pratto: Homers twice in four-hit game

    Pratto went 4-for-5 with two home runs for a total of three RBI and three runs scored in a 9-7 victory over the White Sox on Tuesday.

    Pratto put together the best game of his young career with a four-hit effort that included two home runs off Lucas Giolito. The rookie first baseman is slashing .209/.295/.461 in 115 at-bats this season and has a path to continued playing time with Vinnie Pasquantino sidelined due to shoulder discomfort.

  • Royals' Nick Pratto: Drives in three in Sunday's win

    Pratto went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, three RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 15-7 win over the Padres.

    Pratto contributed to the Royals' two biggest rallies. He earned an RBI on a fielder's choice and scored in the first inning, then added a two-run double and another run in the eighth. The first baseman finished the three-game series 4-for-12 with seven RBI, a home run and three doubles. While he's slashing just .182/.276/.382 through 36 major-league games, Pratto should have a clear path to playing time while Vinnie Pasquantino (shoulder) is out.

  • Royals' Nick Pratto: Sits against righty again

    Pratto is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Pratto's playing-time outlook appeared to improve when Vinnie Pasquantino (shoulder) was moved to the injured list Tuesday, but the lefty-hitting Pratto will now find himself on the bench against a right-handed pitcher (Zac Gallen) for the second time in three games. Hunter Dozier will pick up the start at first base in place of Pratto, who is hitting .163 with a 36.5 percent strikeout rate over his first 33 big-league games.

  • Royals' Nick Pratto: Collects three RBI in doubleheader

    Pratto went 3-for-7 with a two-run home run, a sacrifice fly and three strikeouts as the Royals split Tuesday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

    Pratto's two-run home during the sixth inning of Game 1 extended Kansas City's lead to 4-1, and he also delivered a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning of the nightcap to cut the deficit to one run. The 23-year-old was called up by the Royals in mid-July, and he has a .212/.316/.439 slash line with three home runs, eight RBI and six runs in his first 21 big-league games. However, he's also struck out 26 times in 79 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Nick Pratto: Delivers game-winning hit

    Pratto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Red Sox.

    Pratto walked it off in the ninth inning with a two-out solo shot off Red Sox reliever Garrett Whitlock. After beginning his major-league career with three multi-hit efforts in his first five games, Pratto's cooled off noticeably. Saturday's homer made this just the second time the first baseman has hit safely in consecutive contests this year. He's slashing .196/.313/.393 with two long balls, five RBI, four runs scored, a triple and three doubles through 67 plate appearances. Despite the growing pains, the Royals are likely to give the 23-year-old an extended audition in a lost season for the team.
