The final spot in the Royals’ rotation goes to right-hander Luis Mendoza after a series of strong spring performances. Mendoza, 29, won the job Tuesday morning when manager Ned Yost announced plans to shift left-hander Bruce Chen to the bullpen. Mendoza allowed just one one run in 11 innings over three spring appearances, while Chen surrendered 13 runs and 16 hits in 13 2/3 innings in four outings.
