Jose Guillen Hurts His Leg Running To First Base, Exits Game

Jose Guillen hit into a double play in Tuesday night's game against the Mariners.

More importantly, he came up lame clutching his hamstring.

It certainly didn't look good and Guillen exited the game.

I think one commenter on Royals Review captured the thoughts of more than a few Royals fans:

Kila Ka'aihue, COME ON DOWN!!!

While Ka'aihue could be construed as good news, depending on the injury, this could mean bad news for the Royals with the MLB trade deadline coming up. The Royals are expected to field offers for Guillen, who's entering the final year of his contract.

And Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star:

Well, that was just so Royals, and on so many different levels. Wow.

Updates coming after the game. The Royals are leading 3-1 in the eighth.
