BOSTON – Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas was not in the starting lineup against Boston, a day after he was hit by a pitch from Eduardo Rodriguez.
The Royals said Moustakas had a bruised right forearm after Monday’s game.
“Probably could play today, if there was a righty on the mound,” Royals manager Ned Yost said before Tuesday’s game against Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. “Sale’s pretty tough on lefties right now.”
Moose is out of the lineup tonight for the #Royals, but Ned Yost says he is progressing well after taking a pitch near the forearm last night: “There’s a good chance he could be back tomorrow, and if not absolutely a 100 percent chance when we get home.” pic.twitter.com/GqjG7vyjQt
