LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Royals manager Ned Yost, recovering from a fractured pelvis, is not in attendance at the Winter Meetings.
But Yost told club officials on Monday that he is "feeling better every day."
Yost also indicated he is eager for a doctor's checkup next Monday to determine his healing progress.
Yost remains doubtful in terms of attending Royals Fan Fest in late January, but he remains hopeful that he will be ready for Spring Training in February.
Yost sustained the injury when he fell 20 feet from a deer stand near his home in Georgia. Yost said later he could have died from the injuries had he not had his cell phone with him.
"I would have bled out by nightfall," Yost said after the injury.
Yost was Life Flighted to a nearby hospital. And a surgeon later told Yost he nearly bled out on the operating table as well because the injury was so severe.
