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.
