Royals newcomer Franco changes look, hopes to change results

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Maikel Franco has a new look to go along with a new attitude.

Franco had short hair, rather than his usual shoulder-length dreadlocks, when he arrived at the Kansas City Royals' spring training clubhouse.

In fact, Royals catcher Salvador Perez did not recognize him at first when Franco showed up in Miami to work out together.
