Kansas City Royals
Sometimes a team’s best players don’t make the All-Star team. Here are the American League’s mid-season team MVPs.
Omar Infante homered and tied a career high with six RBIs, James Shields pitched seven innings of three-hit ball and the Kansas City Royals coasted to a 9-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday.
The Royals are hoping Yordano Ventura, their young fireballer, can transition from thrower to pitcher.
Salvador Perez homered early, then drove in the tie breaking run in the eighth and the Kansas City Royals ended their seven-game losing streak on Sunday, rebounding for a 6-4 victory after blowing a 4-0 lead against Washington.
There’s a new age of offensive catchers coming up through the ranks of the big leagues, and Salvador Perez is part of that movement.
American University forward Stephen Lumpkins is returning for his senior season after taking a year off to pursue a career as a pro baseball player within the Kansas City Royals organization.
