Player Notes
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.

Eric Hosmer (hand) could go for another X-ray on Thursday.

Advice: Hosmer originally hoped to get clearance to swing a bat last Thursday, but doctors told him to rest for another week. He'll hope for better news this time around. Either way, the Royals will likely have to make due without him until into September.

Royals manager Ned Yost said Thursday that Eric Hosmer (hand) will not swing a bat for at least another week.

Advice: Hosmer hoped to receive clearance to do so after undergoing an X-ray on Thursday, but he's not quite ready yet. The 24-year-old is dealing with a stress fracture in his right hand and his return now appears likely to fall on the long end of the initial 4-6 week timetable, so mid-September might be most realistic at this point.

Eric Hosmer (hand) hopes to be cleared to resume swinging a bat after undergoing an X-ray Thursday.

Advice: Hosmer was placed on the disabled list earlier this month after a CT scan revealed a stress fracture in his right hand. "If it's all healed up, then we start the hitting progression," Hosmer said. He was given a 4-6 week timetable to return and could conceivably be back during the shorter end of that projection if he gains clearance to swing Thursday.
