Royals | Eric Hosmer plays right field Saturday

Kansas City Royals 1B Eric Hosmer started in right field against the New York Mets Saturday, Aug. 3, with DH Billy Butler starting at first base. Manager Ned Yost wanted to have both Hosmer and Butler in the lineup in a National League stadium because C Salvador Perez was getting the day off. "It definitely affects your defense, but you can't have it both ways in a National League game, so you've got to pick what you need," Yost said before the game. "And then hopefully we can get the lead and we can readjust in the sixth inning and get our defensive alignment right. But we've got to have the lead first."
