Ned Yost media session: July 19

With the Royals now on a six-game losing streak, Yost said that they will have to fight through adversity by making adjustments and moving on. He added that a team doesn’t let losing streaks develop, they just happen. However, Yost does believe that you can control some aspects of the game such as preparation and focus, which Yost said every player must possess from the first pitch to the last. He stated that as manager, his main concern is getting the team prepared everyday, but unfortunately yesterday was the first time since he’s been the Royals’ skipper that he felt the team wasn’t focused 100 percent. Yost said he addressed the issue and has moved on.

The manager also confirmed that Gil Meche is still scheduled for a rehab start on Wednesday with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Yost imagines his pitch count will be around 40-60 pitches. Also, Luke Hochevar is still recovering from a bit of stiffness in his elbow after having an MRI this past week. Hochevar won’t throw until the stiffness is gone.
