X-Rays Negative for Slavy

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com News coming from Jalisco, Mexico is very positive for Royals catcher Salvador Perez.  Salvy was injured on one of the strangest plays I have seen in a while, by none other than Royals back-up catcher Drew Butera.  In a tied ball game in the 9th inning, Drew Butera decided to try and score the game winning run on an ill-advised dash for home. Even more bizarre was the fact that Team Venezuela pitcher...

Royals Fill a Need But Weaken Their Bullpen

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com What was first being reported yesterday as a possibility, is now a reality.  The Kansas City Royals have traded the Cyborg, Wade Davis, to the Chicago Cubs for Right Fielder Jorge Soler.    This is an interesting trade from both sides.
