Guillen returns to Royals' lineup

Outfielder missed Friday's game due to a stiff neck

KANSAS CITY -- Jose Guillen returned to the Royals' lineup on Saturday night as the designated hitter.

Guillen missed Friday night's game because of a stiff neck.

"It's a little better," Guillen said before taking some cuts in the indoor batting cage before the game.

Outdoor batting practice was canceled due to morning and early afternoon rain.
