Recent Update

7/30:Outfielder Melky Cabrera is headed back to Kansas City after he was traded from the White Sox to the Royals on Sunday. In exchange, the Royals sent minor league pitchers AJ Puckett and Andre Davis to Chicago. Cabrera hit 18 home runs and stole 20 bases in his previous season with the Royals in 2011, and though the speed has fallen off with age, he's still hit 13 home runs and is batting .295 this year. Cabrera will join the assortment of outfielders on the roster and will likely split time between left field and designated hitter with Alex Gordon. Lorenzo Cain and Jorge Bonifacio are the regular starters in center and right fields.--Billy Stonick - RotoBaller
