Royals Rumblings - News for April 10, 2017
Matt Strahm says he has a mechanical issue he needs to work out.
“He just kept fighting,” Strahm said of McCann. “I couldn’t keep the ball down. When I keep it up, it’s easier for him to get to.”
Against Gattis, Strahm got ahead 0-1 on a curveball before missing with three straight fastballs. Gattis fouled off another fastball to run the count full. On the final pitch of the game, Strahm missed high again.
As the Astros celebrated, Strahm screamed into this glove. In the moments after the loss, he said he needed to fix the mechanical issue.
“I got to figure out what I’m doing when I’m leaving it up,” he said.

Peter Moylan has become a reliable reliever for the Royals.
"With what he did in the second half for us, it wasn't that tough of a decision," Yost said. "We know what we had in Peter. And we don't have to worry about him.
"We knew he would take the ball. We knew he was durable and extremely effective against right-handed hitting."
