Royals briefly shuffle coaches as Eiland returns home


KANSAS CITY -- Royals pitching coach Dave Eiland will be out of the staff rotation for a couple of days as he returns to his Florida home to attend his daughter's confirmation.

Bullpen coach Doug Henry is moving into the dugout to handle the pitchers and Steve Foster, the Royals' former bullpen coach, is returning to that post for two days. Foster is currently the organization's pitching coordinator.

Eiland is expected back for Monday's game against the Cardinals.
