Trey Hillman Media Session: Alex Gordon, Zack Greinke
Almost Flash Gordon
Royals third baseman Alex Gordon played for the Triple-A affiliate Omaha Royals last night, and according to manager Trey Hillman, things went about as expected. “His game went kind of like we thought it would, a hit here, a walk there, heavy legs in the field and on the base paths. There was no pain in his hip area and he was swinging the bat OK, he recorded one hit with two walks (one intentional).”
All-Star starter, Zack Greinke?
Hillman still feels Royals pitcher Zack Greinke should start for Joe Maddon’s American League All-Star team. “The innings he’s logged, his strikeout to walk ratio, his record is very respectable, his ERA is fantastic, I don’t think anyone could have kept up his pace, and sadly that has made him less appealing to some people,” said Hillman. If he has had any problem at all this season, at times it has been location, otherwise his stuff is still the same, he has not lost any action on his pitches, Hillman went on to say.
Happy July 4th Kansas City, have fun during this special weekend, but remember to be safe!
