The Royals are back on the road this afternoon, facing the White Sox in Glendale.
A good thing, too, because Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson reports to Rangers camp on Monday, and the the Suprise, Ariz., complex will be packed with fans and reporters.
Here is the Royals lineup:
1. Nori Aoki, RF.
2. Lorenzo Cain, DH.
3. Alex Gordon, LF
4. Billy Butler, 1B.
5. Salvador Perez, C.
6. Danny Valencia, 3B.
7. Johnny Giavotella, 2B.
8. Jason Donald, SS.
9. Jarrod Dyson, CF.
Jeremy Guthrie is on the mound. Luke Hochevar will follow him.
1. You’ll notice Billy Butler is playing first base. Expect more of this during the spring. Manager Ned Yost wants to keep Butler fresh out there. In some games, he intends to start Butler as the designated hitter, then double-switch him to first and lose the DH in the process.
2. Reliever Louis Coleman (bruised finger) will throw a session of live batting practice on Tuesday.
3. Second baseman Omar Infante (shoulder inflammation) will test his arm while throwing on Tuesday.
