The Royals were busy this week, going above .500, going back under .500, and shifting guys around.
We discussed Danny Duffy’s rehab start and his timeline to return. We discussed Nate Karns going to the 60-day disabled list. We discussed Jorge Soler coming up while Cheslor Cuthbert went on the DL and we discussed the departure of Chris Young and the arrival of Neftali Feliz (who you may remember, Jeff and Mike both had on their relief pitcher free agent wish lists).
Phew. That’s a lot of news.
Along the way, we got an update on Mike Moustakas’s quest to slay the Balboni Homer Demon, a comparison of Jorge Bonifacio and Jorge Soler, plus a look at the schedule up to the All-Star break.
