Kansas City Royals pitchers James Shields, left, and Wade Davis, right, pose in their jerseys and hats Wednesday during a news conference at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. The two pitchers arrived in Kansas City to undergo physicals and check out the stadium from the home clubhouse for the first time. Shields and Davis became members of the Royals on Sunday in a blockbuster trade that sent top prospect Wil Myers and three other minor leaguers to Tampa Bay.

About this Article

James Shields and Wade Davis, who were in Kansas City to undergo physicals, will be joined in a new-look rotation by Ervin Santana, who arrived in a trade with the Angels, and Jeremy Guthrie, who was a late-season revelation for the Royals and signed a three-year deal to stay with the team. They'll stand on the mound surrounded by one of the best defenses in the American League, and a collection of young position players who are the envy of many other franchises.
