Royals take on the Cleveland Indians Monday

MLB Kansas City

FILE – In this March 9, 2020, file photo, Kansas City Royals manager Mike Matheny pauses in the dugout prior to a spring training baseball game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Scottsdale, Ariz. Forget about those halcyon first few days of spring training, when arranging for the right tee time on the right golf course is often more challenging than the work on the field. When major leaguers report next week for spring training 2.0 — or perhaps more accurately, baseball’s first summer camp — time will be one precious commodity with about three weeks before opening day. “We’re going to have some live batting practices the first day they show up. Day 1 and Day 2. … Multiple ups for the starters,” Matheny said Friday, June 26, 2020, on a video conference call. “These guys are prepared for that. They’ve been hungry for it.” (AP Photo/Ross D.
