The Kansas City Royals cannot seem to catch a break with injuries of any kind in 2012, and second base also continues to be a carousel of starters. Both of those are further in flux with the news that Chris Getz could miss some time due to injury after hurting himself in Sunday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Getz has started the majority of games at second base this season for the Royals with others like Johnny Giavotella, Irving Falu and Yuniesky Betancourt also earning time.
It will be interesting to see if the Royals recall Giavotella with this news or just allow Getz to heal on his own on the active roster.
