Eric Hosmer to miss 3-6 weeks with broken hand
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer was forced out of Thursday's game against the Twins after re-aggravating his hand injury. He was sent for X-rays which revealed a stress fracture. He will land on the disabled list and will likely miss approximately 3-6 weeks moving forward, according to FOX Sports Kansas City and the Kansas City Star.


Hosmer first sustained the injury on a hit-by-pitch on July 20. He is hitting .267/.312/.377 with six homers and 46 RBI in 409 at-bats.

Billy Butler back in funk and back on bench
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ned Yost said after Billy Butler tore it up against Cleveland last weekend that the designated hitter would be in the lineup for the Royals as long as he continued to hit.

Well, Butler did not continue to hit this week and is out of the lineup for the Thursday night game against Minnesota. Butler is hitless in the first two games of the series. His stat line sits at a mediocre .271/.323/.366.

Vargas has recovered fully from an appendectomy, and made a simulated start Tuesday, which convinced the team he was ready to return. He had a 3.31 ERA in 125 innings prior to the injury.
