- Alex Gordon has broken his thumb on a headfirst slide during yesterday's Cactus League game. He should be out 3-4 weeks and then will probably need a couple more weeks to rehab. Trey Hillman sounded less than thrilled about the news and discussed how it could have been avoided had Gordon displayed proper fundamentals. Alberto Callaspo should get the nod on opening day.
- Jeff Bianchi is out for the season and will require reconstructive elbow surgery. At this point I am not sure what happened to cause the injury. But this is devastating news for Bianchi, who it seemed at finally started to put his days on the DL behind him. I'm definitely saddened by this development. Bianchi was #12 on the Royal Revival top prospect list for 2010.
- Danny Duffy is experiencing elbow stiffness as well. The Royals will shelve him for now and I would hope that they take an extremely conservative approach in bringing him back.
- Finally the Cactus League game was canceled today due to rain.
