Photos: Dozier off to quick start in Arizona Fall League

While the Royals are getting ready to play Baltimore in the ALCS, several Royals prospects are busy in Arizona with Instructional League and the Arizona Fall League.

2013 first-round pick Hunter Dozier started the Fall League season by winning the Bowman Hitting Challenge, which combines multiple aspects of hitting.

Dozier also helped Peoria win its first game of the fall on Tuesday night (5-4).  He had two hits and two RBI, with Bubba Starling adding a hit and two runs.

Thanks to Arizona-based photographer Lee Magenheim, who shared photos of Dozier in the Hitting Challenge.

Ned Yost media session: October 7, 2014

The Royals enjoyed an off day on Monday after finishing the American League Division Series on Sunday.  Today, they were back at it with a workout at Kauffman Stadium.

Media members asked Manager Ned Yost which way he was leaning on using Danny Duffy or Jeremy Guthrie in the rotation for the ALCS.  Yost said that he was leaning, but did not indicate his thoughts at this time.  Guthrie threw a simulated game after the workout.

Yost talked about how his players are relishing the big stage and big crowds.  Earlier in the year, media members had mentioned that the Royals record in front of large crowds was under .500.
