Royals manager Ned Yost wondered if Navarro had violated the new rule against blocking home plate. Crew chief Bob Davidson called for a review and the call was confirmed.

"I couldn't tell, really, that's why I went out to check," Yost said. "I know Hoz had to slide wide so I thought it was a good time. It's not a challengeable play but they will review it and they did."
