Royals update

The Royals are coming off a resounding 12-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins in the deciding game of a three-game series at the Metrodome. The Royals won the first game of the series, 2-1, and lost on Saturday, 7-5. It was quite an improvement over their first series of 1997, a two-game sweep at the hands of the Orioles at Camden Yards. The Kansas City offense managed just two unearned runs off Orioles starter Jimmy Key on Opening Day in Baltimore. Key will face Kansas City right-hander Kevin Appier again in today's game, the home opener for the Royals. Kansas City is not at full strength. Catcher Mike Macfarlane (strained oblique muscle) and infielder Jose Offerman (strained groin) were placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday. The Royals filled the spots by promoting catcher Sal Fasano and infielder Shane Halter from Triple-A Omaha. Designated hitter Chili Davis has been on the disabled list with a torn right quadriceps since late in spring training and relief pitcher Jaime Bluma is on the DL with a sore right shoulder.
