Trey Hillman Media Session: April 7th

Although the Royals are just one game into the 2010 season, manager Trey Hillman is already facing questions about wins and losses.  When asked if he felt a sense of urgency coming into tonight’s game, Hillman replied, “There’s a sense of urgency for every game…a little more so having lost a game we should have won.”

Keeping this sense of urgency in mind, the Royals will sport a slightly different lineup for Wednesday night’s game–the main change being the replacement of Willie Bloomquist by Alberto Callaspo at third.

Despite Callaspo’s previous injury (sore right oblique), Hillman claims he is comfortable with Callaspo playing third or else he wouldn’t have made the decision to put him there. Hillman noted that Callaspo enters the game coming off three or four good days of practice.  Fans will be happy to see the Venezuela native’s stick back in the lineup after he hit .300 in 2009, just shy of Billy Butler, who led the club at .301.

Royals faithful will also be pleased to hear that Hillman plans on having Gil Meche for Sunday’s game against the Red Sox, although that announcement has not been made official.
