  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Racks up three hits

    Olivares went 3-for-5 in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Tigers.

    Olivares knocked three singles in the contest, but the Royals' lone run was an MJ Melendez leadoff solo shot in the first inning. Since returning from a two-month absence with a quadriceps injury, Olivares has hit .333 with a home run, three RBI, seven runs scored and four doubles across 10 games. The outfielder has seized a near-everyday role to close out the year, playing mainly in the corner outfield spots while fending off challenges from Kyle Isbel and Drew Waters for playing time.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Slugs fourth homer

    Olivares went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Thursday against the Twins.

    Olivares took Josh Winder deep in the fourth inning to record his fourth home run of the season. He returned from a two-month absence Sept. 17 and has gone 6-for-19 with three doubles, three runs scored and two RBI since. Overall, Olivares has a .305/.357/.466 line across 129 plate appearances on the season.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Reclaims everyday role

    Olivares will start in right field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Twins, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Olivares will pick up his fourth straight start in the corner outfield since he returned from the injured list Saturday and appears to have supplanted Drew Waters as a regular in the Kansas City lineup. The 26-year-old has recorded a double in each of his first three starts since returning and has scored two runs.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Reinstated, starting Saturday

    Olivares (quadriceps) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and is starting Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Olivares was placed on the injured list after the All-Star break but spent the last several weeks at Triple-A Omaha on a rehab assignment. He slashed .304/.333/.413 with five doubles, nine RBI, seven runs and two stolen bases over 12 rehab games and will start in right field and bat sixth Saturday. The 26-year-old should have a chance to serve as the Royals' primary right fielder to close out the regular season.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Starts up rehab assignment

    Olivares (quadriceps) will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

    Coming out of the All-Star break, Olivares was deactivated due to the left quad strain and was later moved to the 60-day injured list, so he won't be eligible to rejoin the Royals until the second half of September. That said, so long as Olivares incurs no setbacks during what will likely be a two-plus-week-long rehab assignment, he could get a look in a near-everyday role in the Kansas City outfield over the final couple weeks of the season. Prior to suffering the injury, Olivares slashed .303/.358/.434 with three home runs and two stolen bases across 109 plate appearances with the Royals.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Olivares (quadriceps) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday.

    Olivares landed on the injured list with a left quadriceps strain July 22, and the issue is apparently significant enough to keep him sidelined for at least another six weeks. It's not yet clear whether the Royals expect him to return prior to the end of the regular season, but Nate Eaton's contract was selected Thursday to provide additional assistance in the outfield.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Placed on 10-day IL

    Olivares was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left quadriceps strain.

    Olivares tweaked his quadriceps at some point this week and will now be away from the team for 10 days while nursing the injury. Nick Pratto was called up Friday to replace him on the active roster. Kyle Isbel will likely operate at the primary option in right field for the time being.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Perfect at plate Thursday

    Olivares went 3-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jays.

    With the Royals placing 10 players on the restricted list due to their unvaccinated status, Olivares got a chance to hit leadoff Thursday. He did well in the table-setting role, getting on base four times and providing the opening run with an RBI single in the fifth inning. The 26-year-old is now slashing .310/.365/.460 with three home runs, 11 RBI, 14 runs scored and two stolen bases through 33 contests. He should have no trouble staying in the lineup this weekend, and he could use that as an audition for more playing time once the Royals are back stateside.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Out of lineup for Game 1

    Olivares will sit Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    Olivares will remain on the bench for a second straight game and for the third time in four contests while the Tigers bring a right-hander (Michael Pineda) to the mound for the front end of the twin bill. Ryan O'Hearn will get the start in right field and bat sixth in place of Olivares.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Takes seat Sunday

    Olivares is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus Cleveland.

    Olivares is 4-for-15 with three runs and six strikeouts over his past five games, and he'll head to the bench for Sunday's series finale. Hunter Dozier will move to right field while Vinnie Pasquantino starts at first base.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Breather Friday

    Olivares is not in the starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Guardians.

    Olivares will get a breather after he produced a 2-for-4 effort with two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Astros. Kyle Isbel will get the start in right field and bat seventh Friday.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Shaping up as everyday player

    Olivares will start in right field and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Olivares has now started three times in the last four occasions that the Royals have opposed right-handed pitchers, as he appears to be getting a look as an everyday player rather than in the short side of a platoon with the lefty-hitting Kyle Isbel. Since coming off the injured list June 24, Olivares has produced only five hits in 28 at-bats, but three have left the yard.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: On bench Tuesday

    Olivares is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game in Houston.

    Olivares went 0-for-4 with a trio of strikeouts in Monday's series-opening loss. After a string of three straight starts, Olivares will sit against the right-handed Luis Garcia while Kyle Isbel gets a look Tuesday as Kansas City's right fielder.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Tallies two hits Sunday

    Olivares went 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs, two RBI and a walk in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Tigers.

    Olivares was out of the lineup for two of the four games leading up to Sunday's matchup, but he was one of four Royals to record multiple hits during the series finale against Detroit. Over his seven games since returning to the field, the 26-year-old has hit .208 with three homers, five runs and five RBI.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Sitting Friday

    Olivares is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

    Olivares returned from the injured list with a two-homer game June 24, but he's 1-for-14 with seven strikeouts since. He will sit for the third time in five games as manager Mike Matheny goes with Andrew Benintendi, Michael Taylor and Kyle Isbel in the outfield from left to right.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: On bench against righty

    Olivares is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers.

    Since being activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Olivares has started in three of the Royals' five games, but each of those starts have come against left-handed pitching. He'll find himself on the bench versus a right-handed pitcher (Jon Gray) for the second time in five games, so at this point, Olivares may not be guaranteed a full-time role in the outfield. The lefty-hitting Kyle Isbel will get the nod in right field Tuesday in place of the righty-hitting Olivares, and it's possible manager Mike Matheny could end up deploying the two players in a platoon at the position.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Takes seat Sunday

    Olivares is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

    After slugging two home runs in his return from the 10-day injured list in Friday's 3-1 win, Olivares followed up with an 0-for-5, four-strikeout performance in Saturday's 9-7 loss. Despite the poor showing Saturday and his move to the bench a day later, Olivares should have a fairly clear path to playing time in right field with MJ Melendez set to take over as the Royals' No. 1 catcher now that Salvador Perez (thumb) is on the shelf with a long-term injury. Kyle Isbel will get the nod in right field Sunday, however.

  • Royals' Edward Olivares: Pops two homers in return

    Olivares went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs in Friday's 3-1 win over the Athletics.

    Olivares took Oakland starter Cole Irvin deep in the third and fifth innings, providing the Royals all the offense they needed to win. Olivares had missed about six weeks with a quadriceps injury prior to his big return Friday, which featured his first two homers of the year. The outfielder is slashing .395/.439/.658 with five RBI, two stolen bases and seven runs scored in 41 plate appearances. He should have a chance to grab a starting role in right field, as Hunter Dozier is expected to see time at first base and designated hitter while MJ Melendez moves behind the dish with Salvador Perez (thumb) out for at least eight weeks.
