Royals Manager On Anthony Lerew's Next Start: 'I Don't See It Happening'

On Tuesday night, Royals pitcher Anthony Lerew was struck by a line drive causing him to leave the game in the second inning. After the game, both manager Ned Yost said x-rays were negative and that he would likely make his next start. Lerew also expressed optimism that he would make his next start.

Today, making his next start doesn't seem likely.

"To be quite honest with you, I don't see it happening," Yost said. "He's pretty sore. We'll just have to wait and see. He's day-to-day."

He threw on Wednesday and felt OK, Yost says, but it's unlikely he'll be taking the mound Sunday against the Yankees.

Then that means he won't be the one giving up Alex Rodriguez's 600th home run.

13-1 Loss To Blue Jays Is Royals Worst Loss Of The Year

Something I skipped over after recapping the Royals awful loss to the Blue Jays was that the 12-run difference was the worst of the year for the Royals.

The Royals won the series opener in the 10th inning, which was their first victory in their past seven. They followed that up with the beating courtesy of the Blue Jays.

However, the Royals are hoping to turn this into a positive. With a Wednesday night victory, they can win the series.

“Hey, this is just one game,” center fielder David DeJesus said, “and we can win the series (today). We do that, and we make (this series) a positive and not a negative.”

They'll have a good shot at a victory with Zack Greinke taking the mound.

X-Rays On Royals Pitcher Anthony Lerew Are Negative, Expected To Make Next Start

Royals pitcher Anthony Lerew took a line drive to the stomach in the second inning of the Royals Tuesday night game against the Blue Jays. The hit knocked him out of the game but he appears to be OK.

"X-rays and everything were negative, so no broken ribs or anything like that," Royals manager Ned Yost said.

Lerew actually got the out on the play throwing out the runner at first.

"Nothing's broken, but obviously I have contusions, a big bruise [on my right bicep] and another on my side," Lerew said. "I did a bunch of treatment for it and it looks a lot better than it did. Hopefully I'll be ready to go soon."

He's expected to make his next start.

Blue Jays Stomp Royals 13-1, Anthony Lerew Leaves The Game Early

Well, things were looking up for the Royals for a few minutes. After breaking a six-game losing streak on Monday night, the Royals returned to Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night only to be blasted by the Blue Jays 13-1.

For the Royals, the game was bad enough. Then add on a line drive that took pitcher Anthony Lerew out of the game and it turned even worse.

"It caught me in the ribs and the biceps, and it hurt pretty bad," said Lerew. "Nothing is broken, but I have contusions."

The Blue Jays scored two runs in the first, second and third inning. The game was essentially over in the eighth but they added insult to injury with seven more runs in the eighth and ninth innings.

Jose Bautista hit his MLB-leading 26th home run of the year.

John Buck, former Royal, contributed a RBI.
