Chickenpox among the reasons that Royals acquired ‘battle-tested’ Jonny Gomes http://www.kansascity.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/vahe-gregorian/article33307524.html#storylink=rss The Royals had long had their eye on Jonny Gomes, whom they acquired Monday from the Braves.

But that interest escalated when right fielder Alex Rios was diagnosed with chickenpox, which is expected to keep Rios out at least two weeks.
