Felipe Paulino will get the start Friday night for a Royals rotation that's still juggling its starters due to injury. As Paulino returned from the DL (forearm) to make his first start last Saturday, lefty Jonathan Sanchez landed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday with tendinitis in his left bicep.Paulino replaced Luis Mendoza, who moved into the bullpen as a reliever.
The Paulino / Sanchez "swap" essentially changes the rotation order. Danny Duffy is expected to start Sunday, then Bruce Chen on Monday. The Royals will name a fifth-starter for Tuesday's game.
