Time will tell on that, but that could have a domino effect." â†µâ†µâ†µFirst base coach Rusty Kuntz could become special assistant to the GM for player development:â†µâ†µâ†µ"My priority, right now, is finding the best outfield/base-running coach I can find with the priority being on the base-running."â†µâ†µâ†µâ†µI think there were a few things, at times, that the Royals did very well this season that gives reason for Yost to return. Of course, they're still battling for fourth place. â†µâ†µYost is operating on a two-year contract extension he signed this season.
