O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.
Sitting against a right-handed starting pitcher for the second straight game, O'Hearn seems to have surrendered primary duties at first base to Hunter Dozier. The 27-year-old O'Hearn has gone 1-for-24 at the dish over his last eight games, dropping his season-long slash line to .206/.310/.320.

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
O'Hearn typically doesn't sit out against right-handers like Cleveland's Triston McKenzie, but manager Mike Matheny may have just wanted to give the 27-year-old a day to clear his head after he went 0-for-12 with six strikeouts over the previous three games. Ryan McBroom will bat fifth for Kansas City and will spell O'Hearn at first base.
O'Hearn went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs, two RBI and a walk during Saturday's win over the White Sox.
O'Hearn went without a homer through his first 21 games of the season, but he now has two in the past four games. The 27-year-old has a .260/.360/.411 slash line with five doubles, six runs and 17 RBI in 25 games.

On the bench for the second straight day, O'Hearn's status as the Royals' top first baseman may be on thin ice.

O'Hearn is not starting Saturday against the Twins, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

O'Hearn (shin) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.
O'Hearn exited early in Saturday's win after fouling a ball off his right shin, so he'll get some extra time to heal up from the injury while Hunter Dozier spells him at first base. With a team off day coming Monday, O'Hearn could be good to go when the Royals return to action Tuesday in Cincinnati.
O'Hearn was removed from Saturday's game against the Twins with a right shin contusion, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
The 27-year-old fouled a pitch off his right shin and initially stayed in the game after being evaluated by the athletic trainer, but he was lifted following the fourth inning. O'Hearn should be considered day-to-day since the removal was considered a precautionary move.

O'Hearn is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.
O'Hearn is usually a fixture in the lineup against righties like Chicago's Dylan Cease, but he'll exit the lineup to make room for Salvador Perez, who is getting a day off behind the plate and starting at first base instead.

O'Hearn missed the Royals' first series of the season as his preseason preparation was delayed by a positive COVID-19 test, but he was in the lineup for the first two games of this week, going 2-for-7 with a pair of RBI. He'll get the day off Wednesday, with Ryan McBroom starting at first base.
O'Hearn went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 14-6 win over Detroit.
O'Hearn made his season debut after being activated off the COVID-19 injury list prior to Monday's contest and quickly made an impact at the plate; his two-run single in the fifth inning proved to be the go-ahead knock. The 26-year-old should be the Royals' everyday first baseman as he looks to improve on his .195/.281/.369 slash line from 2019.
O'Hearn was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday.
O'Hearn missed most of camp after testing positive for the virus. He's only been cleared to participate in baseball activities for less than a week, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him in less than a full-time role to start as he builds back up to game shape. Richard Lovelady was optioned in a corresponding move.
Royals manager Mike Matheny said Monday that O'Hearn (illness) is "really close" to returning from the COVID-19 injured list, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
O'Hearn was cleared to return to the Royals' satellite camp last week to resume baseball activities, so he's presumably just attempting to make up for the training time he lost after testing positive for the coronavirus earlier this month. Once activated, O'Hearn is expected to slot in as the Royals' primary first baseman, likely occupying the strong side of a platoon with Ryan McBroom.
O'Hearn (illness) has resumed baseball activities, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
O'Hearn tested positive for COVID-19 in early July, but he appears to be on the right track as he's been cleared to take part in baseball activities. Although he hasn't been activated from the COVID-19 injured list, the 26-year-old will work out at the satellite camp as he returns to full strength, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. If O'Hearn isn't ready to take the field for Opening Day on Friday, Ryan McBroom could take over at first base.
