UPDATES & NEWS
Clayton Kershaw (back) played catch prior to Sunday night's game, but there is still no definite timetable for his return.
While we'd like to take the "no news is good news" approach here, we have to update you bitter, irate Kershaw owners out there. We're not trying to rub it in at all that you used a first round pick on a starting pitcher. Seriously, we're not. As we said, there's still no timetable for Kershaw's return. Some estimates have him at least a month away, but we'll just have to wait and keep tracking his progress. Tough to sell him, but surely there's someone in your league willing to trade based on name alone.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
