    in right field for the third straight game. But Royals manager Ned Yost said
    Friday that Kendrys Morales days as a right fielder wont extend beyond this
    weekend, after his team completes a run of five games in a row in National
    League parks.Even though the Royals just placed Lorenzo Cain on the disabled
    list this week, Yost said he thinks his team has enough options that, over the
    long haul, weve got the outfield covered.You know, this team is built around
    pitching and defense, he said. Weve got Cain and [Alex] Gordon and [Paolo]
    Orlando and [Jarrod] Dyson. So weve got a pretty good defensive alignment out
    there. ... So well just keep Kendrys in his DH spot. But as long as hes got that
    bat and weve got these National League games -- five in a row right here -- were
    going to put him out there.Before Wednesday, when the Royals played the first of
    two games in St. Louis, Morales hadnt played the outfield since Sept. 27, 2008,
    before a freak ankle injury, at the end of a triumphant, game-winning home run
    trot in 2010, turned him into a full-time designated hitter. But after watching
    Morales run down five fly balls without issue in St. Louis, Yost said he planned
    to play his DH in right in all three games in Philadelphia this weekend.It kills
    you not to have his bat in there when were playing these interleague games, Yost
    said. I hate having him sit on the bench. ... With him being hot like he is now
    and with Cain being out, if youve got Cains bat out of the lineup, to take
    Morales bat out of the lineup too, it just doesnt make sense. That would be two
    pretty big bats that are missing.Morales, 33, isnt just the Royals hottest
    hitter at the moment, though. Hes actually the hottest hitter in baseball. He
    entered Fridays game riding a streak of six straight multi-hit games, in which
    he has gone 16-for-24, with three homers, three doubles and an 1.833 OPS. Hes
    also a candidate for the American League player of the month award, after a June
    in which he hit .402 (35-for-87), with five home runs, seven doubles, a .655
    slugging percentage and 1.108 OPS. He went 6-for-8 in his two games as a right
    fielder in St. Louis, with two doubles and a homer.Yost said the Royals talked
    about playing Morales in right in NL parks as far back as 2015. Even though they
    never actually did it, that idea has been in the back of the managers head ever
    since. You know, last year, going through the thought process ... he was having
    a tremendous year and I said, How do we get this guy in the game? Yost said.Then
    he was shagging during BP in Cleveland, and I was watching him out there, and
    man, he was making great catches and running good routes and looked good out
    there. So I really kept my eye on him for like two days.Yost also knew that
    Morales used to be an outfielder in Cuba before he defected and signed with the
    Los Angeles Angels in 2005. So the manager has been deciding whether to play
    this card ever since, and this week, he got his chance to play it. But hes wary
    of putting too much physical stress on Morales over the long haul.As an
    outfielder, theres a toll, Yost said. I mean, theres a lot of running around out
    there.So come next week, Morales will be back in his familiar DH spot. But for
    the next couple of days, hell be putting his glove to more use than it has seen
    in almost a decade.
