Around the Horn with the Royals
Royals outfielder Coco Crisp will be used sparingly in the coming days, if at all. Look for him to be used in the later innings of games as a pinch runner. “It’s just too much for him to swing and throw right now, it’s quite uncomfortable,” says Hillman. Everything went terrific for Joakim Soria down in Arizona with his two rehab outings. So much so that Hillman says, “He is on his way home, things went very well, he could be with the club tomorrow, we just have to wait and see how his body recovers from today’s outing.” Soria will be back in Kansas City by the start of tonight’s game against the Chicago White Sox.
