Ned Yost media session: August 20

Making the grade

When asked if he will evaluate his young squad any differently in tonight’s game against the White Sox, a club competing for the division title, Yost said no, he doesn’t add weight to games against certain teams. The manager expects everyone’s best effort each and every day, and he will put his best team on the field every day as well. He believes he owes it to fellow division teams and the league to start his best lineup.

Same guy, new position

Yost doesn’t know exactly what the future holds for converted pitcher Brian Anderson, but he has definitely noticed the former outfielder’s success on the mound this year. Yost noted that Anderson’s fastball can max out at 97 mph and he throws it comfortably at 95 mph. He thinks Anderson is making great progress and deserves a look, but he doesn’t know if that opportunity will come in September or next spring.

Etc.

? Yost said he moved Kila Ka’aihue to the three-hole in order to split up the lefties.

Gil Meche left Kansas City today for his rehab assignment with Triple-A Omaha. He should see action in tomorrow’s game.
