Royals' Mike Minor: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minor struck out one in a perfect ninth inning to nail down his second save in Thursday's 1-0 win over the Blue Jays.

Minor was the fourth Kansas City reliever used to complete a two-hit shutout started by Jason Vargas. Manager Ned Yost's latest choice for the ninth-inning role has gotten off to a hot start as the closer, allowing just one hit while posting a 4:0 K:BB in locking down a pair of one-run victories.

Royals' Melky Cabrera: Drives in only run in three-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cabrera went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Thursday's 1-0 win at Toronto.

Cabrera drove in the game's lone run with a single in the third inning, but was also caught stealing later in that frame. The veteran outfielder continues to bat third in the order for Kansas City's underwhelming offense and needs just five RBI to match his career high of 87 set during his first stint with the Royals back in 2011.

Royals' Jason Vargas: Pushes win streak to three with 6.1 shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vargas (17-10) allowed just two hits and three walks while striking out seven over 6.1 shutout innings to beat the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Vargas came in with a 7.11 ERA in 12 starts since pitching in the All-Star Game, but flashed his first half form in this one while winning a 1-0 pitchers' duel over J.A. Happ. The veteran lefty has now won three consecutive starts after dropping each of his previous four, helping Kansas City stay faintly within striking distance of the second AL Wild Card spot. If the team doesn't move him up in an effort to make a playoff push, Vargas will make his final appearance of the season Wednesday against the Tigers.

Royals' Brandon Moss: Not in lineup against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moss is out of the lineup against the Blue Jays on Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Moss retreats to the bench for the second day in a row with left-hander JA Happ taking the mound for Toronto. In his place, Jorge Bonifacio will draw another start at the DH spot.

Royals' Salvador Perez: Shows health with homer, three RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a run-scoring groundout against Toronto on Wednesday.

After three games out of the lineup with an intercostal issue, Perez has looked healthy back in the batter's box over his two games since returning. The potential for the injury to crop up again is concerning, but with Perez sitting on a career-high 26 homers and coming up on his career high in RBI (79; he's three short), he's got to be locked into fantasy lineups as long as the Royals are deploying him.
