Royals' lack of walks doesn't worry Yost
CHICAGO -- The Royals received four free passes in Friday night's win against the White Sox, thanks mostly to Chicago lefty Francisco Liriano showing some inconsistency.

It was the third time in the last six games the Royals have drawn four walks -- although in the other three games, they've only combined to draw one.

Kansas City's lack of patience is nothing new, with the Royals dead last in the Majors with only 345 walks this season. Royals manager Ned Yost said he isn't concerned about the lack of plate discipline, saying he believes it will grow with time.

"You just can't come in here and demand plate discipline from a young hitter," Yost said. "It's a process. We talk about it, sure. We talk about it a lot, but [our players] will continue to grow and get more disciplined as their careers go on."
