Ned Yost media session: August 12

D.L. Update

Luke Hochevar, Robinson Tejeda, and Gil Meche are all chomping at the bit to get back on the field. Yost said Meche threw very well today and has looked good in his last couple outings. 

The Young Guns

According to Yost, the Royals lost veterans on purpose in order to take a look at younger players. Yost said it takes time for new guys to get in a groove, but you just have to let them play and go through it. He added that they are all in the big leagues for a reason–because they have all had success.

Hawaiian Hitter

Yost also discussed Kila Ka’aihue’s numbers at the plate. Ka’aihue enters tonight’s contest hitting .103, but Yost says he looks for good at-bats and execution, not at averages.
