Royals give Ned Yost 2-year extension as manager

The Royals extended the contract of manager Ned Yost for two years on Saturday.

Yost took over the Royals from Trey Hillman, who was dismissed, on May 14. Since then the club has posted a 31-37 mark.

The 55-year-old Yost managed the Milwaukee Brewers  from 2003 until late in the 2008 season, compiling a 457-502 record. He was hired by the Royals last winter as a special advisor of baseball operations.

The announcement came just after the Royals made a deal at the trade deadline, sending outfielder Rick Ankiel and reliever Kyle Farnsworth and cash to the Braves for three players.
