Crown points

• Bench coach Chino Cadahia has been absent because of a family matter. He might be able to rejoin the Royals this weekend in Boston, manager Ned Yost said. No one has replaced Cadahia. "I'm my own bench coach, I just can't get thrown out of a game," Yost said.

• Left fielder Alex Gordon on Monday night became the third Major League left fielder to have a two-assist game this season, joining the Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez, who did it twice, and the Cubs' Alfonso Soriano. Gordon accomplished it twice last season.

• Triple-A Omaha right-hander Jake Odorizzi was the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Week after giving up just one earned run in 14 innings of two victories. Two other Royals farmhands won the same honor in other leagues -- Wilmington right-hander Brooks Pounders in the Carolina League and Burlington left-hander Patrick Conroy in the Appalachian League.

• Royals left-hander Tim Collins celebrated his 23rd birthday on Tuesday.
