The Sun Times’ Joe Cowley says we should all hold our horses on the rumored Edwin Jackson to the White Sox deal:
Hold off on the Jackson trade folks, KW has something big cooking and if he gets it done Jackson trade is off.
Maybe it’s a play for Dunn directly? Prince Fielder? You’d think that if he really knew anything that he’d just say it, but it’s also possible that Williams just called him and told him the above in so many words. I could totally picture Williams doing that.
Either way, the suspense it terrible! I hope it lasts!
The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.
In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.
The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
