Central Notes: Royals, Chisenhall, Theriot, Brewers

Let's take a look at some items from both the AL and NL Central..

  • Royals manager Ned Yost told the Associated Press that he would like to have two left-handers in the bullpen to start the year, though he won't have two southpaw relievers just for the sake of it.  For the time being, it sounds like Kansas City will look for an answer in-house, starting with their newest acquisition Robert Fish.
  • When asked if service time factored into the decision to demote Lonnie Chisenhall, Indians GM Chris Antonetti said, "That's certainly not the case," tweets Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.
  • After being dealt from the Dodgers to the Cardinals, Ryan Theriot says that he's looking to play the way he did in 2008, writes MLB.com's Matthew Leach.  In '08, Theriot posted a slash line of .307/.387/.359 for the Cubs.
  • Chris Cwik of Fangraphs wonders if the Brewers' acquisition of Zack Greinke has left them too thin in some areas.
