Royals conclude 2020 season with eye on progress of youth

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Kansas City Royals spent the 60-game season in 2020 saying farewell to longtime outfielder Alex Gordon, one of the linchpins of their back-to-back World Series runs, and welcome to the young core they hope will take them back there.

Brady Singer nearly threw a no-hitter in his abbreviated rookie year. Fellow right-hander Kris Bubic made 10 starts and began to figure things out by the end of September. And their young bullpen, which was an abject failure last season, took massive strides from summer camp to the final out of the season Sunday with an eye toward the future.

The Royals may have finished 26-34 and fourth in the AL Central. But simply playing was huge for their rebuilding effort.
