Mike Trout was reportedly unhurt in an automobile accident following Wednesday's Angels game.
CBS Los Angeles reported that Trout was involved in the crash and that there was one serious injury, but that Trout was not hurt. Trout didn't play Wednesday night in what was labeled a rare routine day off for the MVP candidate.
Starlin Castro went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and a double Wednesday as the Yankees took down the Royals 5-4 in 13 innings.
Two straight extra-inning wins for the Yankees in Kansas City. Castro had the biggest hit in the 13th, though he neither scored nor plated the winning run. Instead, his double advanced Didi Gregorius to third, and Gregorius went on to score on Brian McCann's sac fly. Castro's homer was his 19th, which is five better than his previous career high. His .269 average and .302 OBP leave more to be desired.
Luis Cessa yielded four runs -- three earned -- in six innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Royals.
Cessa gave up homers to Kendrys Morales in the first and Eric Hosmer in the third. He was better afterwards, and he ended up eking out his third quality start in three tries. He hasn't quite shown enough to suggest that he'll be of use in mixed leagues.
Eric Hosmer hit his career-high tying 19th homer Wednesday against the Yankees.
He also hit 19 homers as a 21-year-old rookie in 2011. It was Hosmer's fourth homer in 15 games following a lengthy power drought.
Paulo Orlando went 0-for-5 as the Royals' No. 7 hitter Wednesday against the Yankees.
Orlando had hit leadoff in his previous 12 starts, but his recent slump got him dropped back down the order tonight. He could start losing some at-bats going forward, though that depends on the health of Lorenzo Cain's wrist. Orlando is just three for his last 43, sending his average spiraling from .334 to .303.
