    Royals evaluate stadium options, downtown ballpark possible

    With a decade left on their lease at Kauffman Stadium, the Kansas City Royals are evaluating their options and owner John Sherman said Tuesday one of those could be a new downtown ballpark. The Royals are tied to the 53-year-old stadium, named after founder Ewing Kauffman, until 2031 under terms of a public-private partnership 15 years ago that helped to fund $250 million in renovations to the quaint but aging ballpark on the outskirts of town.

    A's hold off Royals 12-10 to keep pace in AL wild-card race

    Matt Olson hit a two-run homer, Josh Harrison drove in three runs and Elvis Andrus had four hits as the Oakland Athletics held on through a nervy ninth inning to beat the Kansas City Royals 12-10 on Wednesday night. Oakland's Sean Manaea (10-9) was far from flawless against his former team, allowing five runs in five innings.

    Royals promote Dayton Moore to president, Picollo to GM

    The Kansas City Royals promoted general manager Dayton Moore to president of baseball operations and elevated longtime assistant GM J.J. Picollo to fill his previous role in a front-office shakeup Tuesday that promises a seamless path forward for the rebuilding organization. Moore, who has been general manager since 2006, will continue to have final say on trades and other roster moves, but Picollo will have a greater voice in the room when it comes to putting together the team. Indeed, the 54-year-old Moore and the 51-year-old Picollo have worked together for 15 years in Kansas City.
