Vargas injury to change Royals’ pitching rotation after break

Ned Yost is planning to reset his post-All-Star break pitching rotation while left-hander Jason Vargas recovers from an appendectomy. No. 1 starter James Shields, who will pitch Saturday against Detroit, will open the second half the season at Boston on July 18. Left-hander Danny Duffy, who started Friday, will slide into Vargas’ spot as the No. 2 starter.
