Rick Ankiel Not In The Royals Lineup, Takes Batting Practice

Here's the Royals lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Yankees in New York:

  1. Scott Podsednik
  2. Jason Kendall
  3. David DeJesus
  4. Billy Butler
  5. Jose Guillen
  6. Alberto Callaspo
  7. Mike Aviles
  8. Willie Bloomquist
  9. Yuniesky Betancourt

Notice there's no Rick Ankiel in that lineup. He was taking batting practice in New York today.

And Bruce Chen is your pitcher. He's facing C.C. Sabathia.
