The presumed Opening Day starter for the White Sox against the Royals on April 6 is Chris Sale. But the big lefty suffered a foot injury on Satuday and will miss three weeks of spring training, casting doubt on his availability.
According to manager Ned Yost, the Royals aren’t feeling fat and happy about last year’s American League championship. He knows this because when he offered cheeseburgers to some players, they refused.
The Royals spent Thursday morning in a mandatory domestic violence education program. The programs are being held throughout spring training and are conducted by the San Francisco-based Futures Without Violence. All major-league teams will hear the presentation.
Kansas City just signed Morales on a minor-league contract. He will not stretch out as a starter at Royals camp, though he has the ability to do so if needed. This could help Morales’ case in the battle for a roster spot.
