Royals manager Ned Yost breaks pelvis falling out of tree

19 Comments

Royals manager Ned Yost broke his pelvis following a fall from a tree on the property of his Georgia home over the weekend. Yost was working on a tree stand — he’s a big hunter — when he fell.

As of last night Yost was still in the hospital, but he is expected to make a full recovery. According to the Kansas City Star, it’s unclear if Yost will be well enough to make the Winter Meetings in Orlando next month, but it’s possible.

Here’s hoping you get well soon, Ned. Your fleece vest/button-down combos at the Winter Meetings are easily the best among managers who break out the fleece vest/button-down combos each year.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
