Tuesday marks the full-squad report day for Kansas City. The pitchers and catchers have been conducting workouts since Friday. A good chunk of the position players are already here.
The only two players missing from the starting lineup are shortstop Alcides Escobar and designated hitter Kendrys Morales.
Manager Ned Yost indicated he expected both players to report on time. He said he had not been informed about any visa issues for any other players.
Escobar will likely begin the season as the team’s leadoff hitter, the position he held during last season’s playoffs. Morales is looking to bounce back from a rough 2014. His place in the batting order has not yet been decided.
