Giavotella continues to play third base and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base against Triple-A New Orleans on Friday.
Perhaps it's the struggles of learning a new position, but Giavotella seems to be blowing a golden opportunity here as the club is giving him an easy path to the majors. With Mike Moustakas mired in a season-long slump in the big, the Royals have used Giavotella at the hot corner over the last 10 games. He has rewarded them with a .195 average and eight strikeouts over 41 at-bats. The team may have to dig a little deeper into the farm if they want to fix this problem in-house.
