Royals | Jeremy Guthrie likely to hit market

Sat, 27 Oct 2012 23:28:38 -0700

The Kansas City Royals acknowledge a new contract with SP Jeremy Guthrie is now unlikely before he hits the open market. "I think it's pretty safe to say he's going to explore free agency," general manager Dayton Moore said. "We'll continue to monitor how that goes. He's going to explore his options, and it's important that we do as well." Guthrie is said to want a three-year contract, but the team doesn't want to go longer than two years.

Royals | Johnny Giavotella coming up

Wed, 09 May 2012 09:28:31 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Johnny Giavotella is expected to be recalled from the minors and will likely join the lineup Wednesday, May 9. "He's another right-handed bat," general manager Dayton Moore said, "and we need another right-handed bat over the next several days with all of the left-handed pitchers we're expecting to face." The Royals may decide to place SP Jonathan Sanchez (biceps) on the disabled list because he's dealing with biceps tendonitis, which the team thinks might be the reason for his drop in velocity and effectiveness. If that happens, Ps Luis Mendoza, Nathan Adcock or Vin Mazzaro could be candidates for the rotation. Giavotella is a right-handed option, so he won't necessarily become the starter at second base. He was hitting .331 with five home runs and 25 RBIs in 31 games for Triple-A Omaha.
