  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Ready for game action

    Mondesi (foot) will bat second and play shortstop Friday against the Dodgers, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Mondesi had been dealing with a sore foot since the start of camp and missed the Royals' first few spring games. The injury never seemed particularly serious, however, and returning to game action Friday gives him plenty of time to get up to speed by the regular season.

  • Royals' Ryan O'Hearn: Hot start to spring training

    O'Hearn went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday against the Reds.

    O'Hearn has put on quite a display of power early on this spring, slugging three homers in four exhibition games. He's unlikely to find significant playing time once the regular season starts due to the addition of Carlos Santana, though he's making a case for a bench spot with his early performance.

  • Royals' Mike Minor: Set for spring debut

    Minor will make his first start of the Cactus League on Saturday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Minor signed a big-league deal with the Royals this offseason and is set to take the mound in his first competitive action of the spring. He'll have his eye on improving results from the abbreviated 2020 campaign, when he posted a 5.56 ERA across 56.2 innings with the Rangers and Athletics.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Recovery progressing well

    Royals manager Mike Matheny said Thursday that Mondesi (foot) is "moving in the right direction," Josh Vernier of 610 Sports reports.

    Mondesi still hasn't made his Cactus League debut due to a sore foot that he sustained when fouling a ball off his foot prior to spring training. He'll work on running the bases and sliding Thursday as he continues his journey back to full strength. Matheny hasn't expressed much concern regarding the injury, but it's still not clear when Mondesi will be healthy enough to appear in spring games.

  • Royals' Jarrod Dyson: Returns to Kansas City

    Dyson agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Royals on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    The 36-year-old struggled between the White Sox and Pirates last season, posting a .180/.231/.411 slash line in 66 plate appearances, and he'll return to the organization that drafted him back in 2006. Dyson last played with the Royals in 2016, when he posted a career-high .728 OPS in 107 games. He should open as a reserve outfielder behind Andrew Benintendi, Michael Taylor and Whit Merrifield for Kansas City.

  • Royals' Eric Skoglund: Healthy for spring training

    Skoglund (arm) is listed among the Royals' available relievers for Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Cubs, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Skoglund's inclusion on the lineup card suggests that he's back to 100 percent health after he was diagnosed last spring with a left arm injury. The 28-year-old, who is attending spring training as a non-roster invitee, is likely to begin the 2021 campaign as a member of Triple-A Omaha's rotation.

  • Royals' Kyle Zimmer: Spring debut on tap

    Zimmer (elbow) is listed among the Royals' available bullpen options for Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Cubs, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Zimmer looks poised to see his first competitive action since Sept. 22, when he was diagnosed with right elbow ulnar neuritis following an appearance against St. Louis. With a long offseason to recover from the injury, Zimmer looks to be back to full strength for spring training. The 29-year-old right-hander is expected to work in a middle-relief role with Kansas City to begin 2021.

  • Royals' Adalberto Mondesi: Slowed by sore foot

    Royals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Mondesi has yet to make his Cactus League debut due to a sore foot, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Mondesi sustained the injury when he fouled a ball off his foot prior to reporting to camp. Matheny noted that the Royals are merely taking a cautious approach with Mondesi, who is feeling fine aside from the soreness. Mondesi will likely continue to take part in live batting practice and drills for the next few days before the Royals integrate him into games.

  • Royals' Hunter Dozier: Lands four-year extension

    Dozier and the Royals are expected to finalize a four-year contract extension Sunday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, the deal is worth $25 million and also has a $10 million team option for 2025. The extension buys out the 29-year-old's final three years of arbitration and one year of free agency. After missing the start of the 2020 season due to a positive COVID-19 test, Dozier struggled to return to top form during the abbreviated campaign, but he continued to display a discerning eye at the plate by posting a career-high 14.6 percent walk rate. Over the past two seasons, Dozier has been a well above-average offensive contributor, slashing .267/.347/.492 (119 wRC+) in 772 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Jakob Junis: Working on new pitches

    Junis has worked on a cutter and changeup this offseason, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reported.

    Junis is known for his slider, which has dominated his pitch mix the last few seasons. However, he's struggled with his fastball and had inconsistent overall results, so a new pitch would theoretically help keep opposing batters more off balance. Junis will be competing for a role in the Royals' rotation throughout spring training.

  • Royals' Brad Brach: Finds work in Kansas City

    The Royals signed Brach to a minor-league contract Monday that includes an invitation to big-league spring training.

    Brach didn't take long to find an opportunity with another organization after the Mets released him last week. The 34-year-old will bring a wealth of MLB experience to the Kansas City bullpen, but he likely won't be trusted to handle high-leverage work to begin the season even if he's able to win a spot on the Royals' Opening Day roster. Over the past two seasons, Brach has posted a 5.54 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 9.7 K-BB% across 66.2 innings.

  • Royals' Andrew Benintendi: Set to join Royals

    The Royals agreed to acquire Benintendi (ribs) from the Red Sox Wednesday in a three-team trade that also includes the Mets, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    The 26-year-old went 4-for-39 with a 32.7 percent strikeout rate through the first couple weeks of the 2020 season before being shut down with a rib injury, and he's now set to begin the 2021 campaign with the Royals. Benintendi had a .796 OPS over his first four big-league seasons with the Red Sox and should slot into a starting role in the outfield for the Royals. He's set to earn $6.6 million this season and is under team control for 2022 in his final year of arbitration. According to Jeff Passan of ESPN.com, Franchy Cordero is set to head to Boston while Khalil Lee will go to the Mets.
