The Kansas City Royals continue to try to mix and match the right outfielders on the bench and in the line-up with Lorenzo Cain continuing to sit due to injury. Bob Dutton has the latest moves by the team as they start a new series with the Minnesota Twins.

As the team faces their rivals, they'll still be missing Greg Holland in the bullpen and Cain in center field. Cain in particular was re-injured during his rehab when he had a problem with a hip flexor. He was originally trying to come back from a groin injury.
In the bigger picture, the Royals are trying to extend a winning streak that came on the heels of a news-making 12 game losing streak. They've now won two in a row and another win would continue to hearten the hopes of fans after an early season disaster.
