• Royals prospect Daniel Mateo was named to the Midwest League All-Star team on Wednesday. Mateo, an infielder with Low-A Kane County, is batting .305 on the season with four home runs and 33 RBIs.

• While most of the focus on Tuesday was on Greinke's first start at Kauffman Stadium since being traded to Milwaukee, there was another first at The K for a Brewers pitcher. Reliever Francisco Rodriguez allowed his first run in Kansas City after 12 2/3 scoreless innings. The run counted as the game-winner, saddling Rodriguez with the loss.
