Royals-Blue Jays Preview

(AP) -- After receiving a warm welcome from his new team, Johnny Cueto is ready to show the Kansas City Royals they made the right move by adding him to the mix.

Cueto makes his Royals debut Friday night in Toronto against a Blue Jays club that's also bolstered its roster considerably this week.

Though Kansas City (61-40) enjoys a comfortable lead atop the AL Central, it lacked a true ace before acquiring Cueto from Cincinnati for left-handers Brandon Finnegan, John Lamb and Cody Reed on Sunday. Meeting his new teammates for the first time Tuesday with the Royals in Cleveland, the right-hander was greeted with a welcome sign from some players and staff and given a crown to wear.
