Royals manager Ned Yost sticks with Raul Ibanez until Nori Aoki returns

A little less than a week after Raul Ibanez homered against the Minnesota Twins, the extra-base hit appears like more of a mirage. He entered the Royals’ game Tuesday night game against the Tampa Bay Rays without a hit in his subsequent 11 at-bats. He struck out four times during that stretch, including twice on Monday at Tropicana Field. Yet manager Ned Yost still gave Ibanez a start on Tuesday.
