Player Notes
Eric Hosmer (hand) could begin a rehab assignment this weekend.

Advice: Hosmer began swinging a bat earlier this week and took batting practice Thursday for the first time since landing on the disabled list. The first baseman should only need a handful of rehab games before being activated, so a return next week is looking likely.

Eric Hosmer (hand) hopes to be cleared to resume swinging a bat on Monday after undergoing another X-ray.

Advice: Royals manager Ned Yost said on Tuesday that Hosmer was likely another couple of weeks away from swinging a bat, but is appears he may have jumped the gun. The first baseman has been on the shelf since late July with a stress fracture in his right hand and is likely a few weeks away from a return even if he gains clearance on Monday.

Royals manager Ned Yost said on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that Eric Hosmer (hand) is likely another couple of weeks away from swinging a bat.

Advice: Hosmer is dealing with a stress fracture in his hand and will need to show proper healing before picking up a bat. There's no clear timetable for his return, but it looks like the Royals will have to make due without him until late September.
