MLB Trade Deadline: Royals Reliever Kyle Farnsworth Pulled From Game With Injury

Well, well, well. Let's call this the Royal luck.

The latest Royal to join the infirmary is reliever Kyle Farnsworth. Facing backup catcher Drew Butera in the sixth inning, Farnsworth threw a fastball that missed the strike zone and the bespectacled righty immediately hunched over. Yost and Royals trainer Nick Kenney emerged from the dugout, and Farnsworth joined them on the way back in.

Royals manager Ned Yost says he'll be ready on Wednesday but, you know what, Gil Meche was only supposed to be out for a couple weeks. The Royals are officially saying it's a right hamstring cramp and does not appear to be a strain.

Knowing the Royals luck, this will turn into a serious injury.

Stick around for more news on the baseball trade deadline.
