Royals Fire Trey Hillman

The Royals fired manager Trey Hillman, according to Yahoo's Jeff Passan (via Twitter). Former Brewers manager Ned Yost will take over the club. The 12-23 Royals already trail the first place Twins by 10.5 games in the AL Central. Hillman was in the last year of a three-year contract that he signed after the 2007 season. Hillman led the Royals to a 152-207 record in two-plus seasons.

Royals GM Dayton Moore said earlier in the week that the Royals were not close to making any moves and praised Hillman for doing a "terrific job." Hillman says he believes in the Royals; he told Passan that "it will work" in Kansas City (Twitter link).

Yost, 55, led the Brewers to a 457-502 record when he managed them from 2003-08.
