Yost offers thoughts on Finnegan in 'pen

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- There is a perception by some observers that keeping rookie left-hander Brandon Finnegan on the 25-man roster and in the Royals' bullpen would be "wasting" him because he was a first-round Draft pick chosen to be an eventual starter.

Manager Ned Yost doesn't see it that way at all.

"People that think that way don't have to win ballgames here," Yost said. "We do. We have to do whatever we need to do to win baseball games."
