Royals' Yost close to announcing rotation order

It’s getting close to what Royals manager Ned Yost likes to view as the "2-second" point in the decision-making process regarding roles and roster decisions prior to the April 1 opener. Yost is promising to announce the order of his starting rotation Friday at some point. It will be a surprise if it isn’t James Shields, Ervin Santana, Jeremy Guthrie, Wade Davis and Bruce Chen.
