Royals skip Adcock, but only once
NEW YORK -- Right-hander Nate Adcock is being bypassed in the current turn of the Royals' starting rotation because of Thursday's off-day. But he'll return to start against the Indians on Monday afternoon at Cleveland.

Adcock made his first start of the season on Sunday and went five innings, giving up one run, in a 2-0 loss to the D-backs.

Will Smith will start on Tuesday night and Bruce Chen will go on Wednesday at Cleveland, Royals manager Ned Yost said.

When the Royals leave for this weekend's three-game series at Baltimore, infielder Yuniesky Betancourt will head for Springdale, Ark., to join the Double-A Northwest Arkansas Naturals and continue his rehab from a sprained right ankle.
