Nos. 66 and 69 on the Royals' roster have been doing a number on opposing pitchers in the Cactus League lately. First basemen Ryan O'Hearn and Frank Schwindel won't be cracking the Opening Day roster, but the cracks off their bats have been plentiful in recent days.

There was some concern that Mike Moustakas would not get enough at-bats to get his timing down before Spring Training concludes. But after two games, Moustakas has put any anxieties to rest.

Mike Moustakas was back in the Royals' lineup for the first time since re-signing with the club last Saturday. He went 1-for-4 with a two-run single.
Royals left-hander Brian Flynn is just one of several Royals players who is out of options. The Royals will have some tough decisions to make with regards to these players soon.
Danny Duffy will get the ball for the Royals on Opening Day.
Royals right-hander Jason Hammel's primary mission this spring was to command his two-seam fastball and get more ground balls. After Thursday's start against the Dodgers, a 14-8 win by the Royals, Hammel believes he's getting really close.
The Royals break camp in less than 11 days, and they still have several key roster decisions to make. Do they keep four or five outfielders? Five or six infielders? Seven or eight bullpen arms? We'll know the answers soon enough.
Royals manager Ned Yost hasn't made any proclamations about right-hander Wily Peralta's role in 2018. But with all the spots in the club's rotation taken basically before camp opened, it seemed an obvious conclusion that Peralta, a former starter, was a strong candidate to transition to the bullpen.
After legendary Bo Jackson and comedic actor Rob Riggle spent some time in camp earlier this month, actor Jim Caviezel showed up to take some batting practice on Wednesday with the Royals and throw out the ceremonial first pitch before their game against the Cubs at Surprise Stadium.
When camp opened, Hunter Dozier appeared to have at least a fair chance at becoming the Opening Day first baseman. Of course, that all changed when the Royals signed veteran Lucas Duda.
Just before the Royals unveiled their annual organizational awards here on Tuesday morning, the club wanted to informally recognize a veteran player whom few thought would even be in attendance.
The Royals on Monday night made their first round of camp reductions, which included optioning corner infielder Hunter Dozier and right-hander Kyle Zimmer to Triple-A Omaha.
Royals right-hander Jakob Junis was so good Monday, you almost wonder if he thought he was wasting such a performance in Spring Training.
The talent is there. No one has ever disputed that. Ever since the Royals took right-hander Josh Staumont in the second round of the 2015 Draft, he and his 100-mph fastball have been the center of conversation virtually where ever he has gone.
The Royals' outfield logjam may have cleared up a bit with the news of Jorge Bonifacio's 80-game suspension for taking a performance-enhancing drug. But not as much as you might think, according to manager Ned Yost.
Royals outfielder Jorge Bonfiacio, suspended Saturday for 80 games by Major League Baseball for taking a performance-enhancing drug, did not take questions from reporters Sunday morning but did speak briefly.
Moustakas is back with the Royals, an improbable reunion that became official when Moustakas passed his physical Saturday morning. No corresponding roster move on the 40-man was announced.
Royals third baseman Cheslor Cuthbert took the news of Mike Moustakas signing back with his former team in stride.
With third baseman Mike Moustakas expected to arrive in camp either Friday night or Saturday morning, the Royals have some immediate adjustments to make.
The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that Kansas City Royals outfielder Jorge Bonifacio has received an 80-game suspension without pay after testing positive for Boldenone, a performance-enhancing substance in violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.
Royals right-hander Ian Kennedy threw three scoreless innings on Friday, giving up three hits and one walk while striking out two in the Royals' 7-2 split-squad loss to the D-backs. He threw 47 pitches, 29 for strikes.
Every Spring Training, prospects get a chance to show what they can do as they prepare for the upcoming season. Some compete for jobs in big league camp, while others vie for spots on Minor League affiliates. MLB Pipeline will visit all 30 camps this spring, and today we check in on the Royals.
8 reasons to be excited about Moustakas
You're going to say spring statistics aren't worth a warm bucket of pine tar, aren't you? You're going to argue that we should not get worked up by anything that has happened in Florida or Arizona the last couple of weeks. But spring performances do matter on a bunch of levels.
As part of MLB Pipeline's visit to all 30 Spring Training facilities, we're sitting down with prospects and getting to know them a little better. At Royals camp, it was Kansas City's No. 10 prospect, Foster Griffin.
