l-time designated hitter. But after watching Morales run down five fly balls without issue in St. Louis, Yost said he planned to Antworten

Hes the Kansas City Royals hottest hitter. And on Friday night, he was starting in right field for the third straight game. But Royals manager Ned Yost said Friday that Kendrys Morales days as a right fielder wont extend beyond this weekend, after his team completes a run of five games in a row in National League parks.Even though the Royals just placed Lorenzo Cain on the disabled list this week, Yost said he thinks his team has enough options that, over the long haul, weve got the outfield covered.You know, this team is built around pitching and defense, he said. Weve got Cain and [Alex] Gordon and [Paolo] Orlando and [Jarrod] Dyson. So weve got a pretty good defensive alignment out there. ... So well just keep Kendrys in his DH spot. But as long as hes got that bat and weve got these National League games -- five in a row right here -- were going to put him out there.Before Wednesday, when the Royals played the first of two games in St. Louis, Morales hadnt played the outfield since Sept. 27, 2008, before a freak ankle injury, at the end of a triumphant, game-winning home run trot in 2010, turned him into a full-time designated hitter. But after watching Morales run down five fly balls without issue in St. Louis, Yost said he planned to play his DH in right in all three games in Philadelphia this weekend.It kills you not to have his bat in there when were playing these interleague games, Yost said. I hate having him sit on the bench. ... With him being hot like he is now and with Cain being out, if youve got Cains bat out of the lineup, to take Morales bat out of the lineup too, it just doesnt make sense. That would be two pretty big bats that are missing.Morales, 33, isnt just the Royals hottest hitter at the moment, though. Hes actually the hottest hitter in baseball. He entered Fridays game riding a streak of six straight multi-hit games, in which he has gone 16-for-24, with three homers, three doubles and an 1.833 OPS. Hes also a candidate for the American League player of the month award, after a June in which he hit .402 (35-for-87), with five home runs, seven doubles, a .655 slugging percentage and 1.108 OPS. He went 6-for-8 in his two games as a right fielder in St. Louis, with two doubles and a homer.Yost said the Royals talked about playing Morales in right in NL parks as far back as 2015. Even though they never actually did it, that idea has been in the back of the managers head ever since. You know, last year, going through the thought process ... he was having a tremendous year and I said, How do we get this guy in the game? Yost said.Then he was shagging during BP in Cleveland, and I was watching him out there, and man, he was making great catches and running good routes and looked good out there. So I really kept my eye on him for like two days.Yost also knew that Morales used to be an outfielder in Cuba before he defected and signed with the Los Angeles Angels in 2005. So the manager has been deciding whether to play this card ever since, and this week, he got his chance to play it. But hes wary of putting too much physical stress on Morales over the long haul.As an outfielder, theres a toll, Yost said. I mean, theres a lot of running around out there.So come next week, Morales will be back in his familiar DH spot. But for the next couple of days, hell be putting his glove to more use than it has seen in almost a decade. Adidas NHL Jerseys From China .

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- The only thing consistent about Kansas State this season has been Bill Snyders postgame message.One that laments the Wildcats inconsistency.Their yin-and-yang was on display once more on Saturday in a 24-21 victory over Texas. Kansas State was dominant on both sides of the ball in the first half, then committed a series of mistakes in the second half that provided the Longhorns an opportunity to make it a game.We played fine in the first half, Snyder said grimly, and laid eggs in the second half.Indeed, the Wildcats (4-3, 2-2 Big 12) raced to a 21-7 lead at the break, and added a field goal in the third quarter to take control. But three turnovers, including one by Charles Jones at the goal line, allowed the Longhorns (3-4, 1-3) to get within 24-14 later in the quarter.The Longhorns couldnt overcome their own multitude of mistakes, though. Among them was a badly missed 35-yard field-goal attempt with just over four minutes remaining that would have made it 24-17.The Longhorns eventually got the ball back, but then squandered precious time with running plays before Shane Buechele hit Dorian Leonard from 6 yards out with 46 seconds left. Then they knocked the ensuing onside kick out of bounds, preventing them from having a chance to kick a tying field goal.Its tough when you lose a game and we had the opportunity to go win it, said Texas coach Charlie Strong, whose hot seat only got hotter with his third loss in four games. We needed big stops in the first half and we didnt make them. We were able to bounce back there in the second half -- its just that weve got to learn from it, got to move on. ... Weve just got to get ourselves back together.Jesse Ertz led the Wildcats with 171 yards passing and a touchdown and 78 yards rushing and two more scores. He also teamed with running backs Charles Jones, Justin Silmon and Alex Barnes to pile up 240 yards on the ground against a Texas defense that began loading up the box to stop them.The result was the Wildcats fifth straight home win over Texas.ddddddddddddI was kind of upset after last week, Kansas State linebacker Elijah Lee said of a lopsided loss to Oklahoma. Thats something you have to carry with you: The season isnt over. You have to take it game by game.Buechele finished with 222 yards and two scores passing, but a big chunk of that came on an 80-yard pass to Devin Duvernay in the second quarter. Otherwise, Buechele was sacked twice and corralled most of the day.DOnta Foreman, the nations second-leading rusher, carried 24 times for 124 yards. But he was repeatedly stuffed in key situations, a big reason why Texas was 3 of 11 on third down and 0 for 2 on fourth.Beats the tar out of a loss, Snyder said in summary, but its not so much the win as how. If we play and prepare well start to finish, wed be better. Thats why Im not jumping up and down right now.THE TAKEAWAYTEXAS: After eclipsing 500 yards total offense for the fourth time this season a week ago against Iowa State, the Longhorns struggled to move the ball. They managed a season-low 344 yards on Saturday.KANSAS STATE: The fumble by Jones at the goal line summed up the Wildcats inconsistency issues. The senior running back otherwise had a solid day but, as Snyder pointed out, Were all taught when were 5 years old to put two hands on the football.PENALTY PROBLEMSTexas was penalized 10 times for 72 yards, drawing four flags on the Wildcats scoring march to open the game. Kansas State countered with eight penalties for 75 yards. It made for a busy game for an officiating crew that also spent a whole lot of time reviewing plays.SEEING REDThe Wildcats had scored on 56 straight trips inside the red zone before Jones fumbled in the third quarter. The last time they failed to score was Oct. 17, 2015, in a shutout loss to the Sooners.UP NEXTTEXAS: Ninth-ranked Baylor visits Austin on Saturday.KANSAS STATE: A trip to Iowa State awaits Saturday.
