Athletics-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Already without one of their top outfielders, the Kansas City Royals will be minus their starting shortstop for the immediate future.

Following a chippy opener between last season's wild-card participants, the Royals won't have Alcides Escobar in the lineup Saturday night against the visiting Oakland Athletics.

Meeting for the first time since Kansas City's 9-8, 12-inning wild-card game victory, both benches cleared in the seventh inning Friday after Oakland's Brett Lawrie slid hard into Escobar at second base. Though nothing further ensued, Escobar suffered a mild knee sprain that's left him day to day.
