Kansas City Royals second baseman Chris Getz left Sunday's 15-inning loss to the St. Louis Cardinals with an apparent leg strain. Initially it was thought the injury might keep Getz out of the lineup for only a few days, but the injury seems far worse than that.
The news got worse after the game for the Royals when Getz was spotted leaving Sunday's game in a bot:

For precautionary reasons the Royals pulled second baseman Johnny Giavotella from his current game at Triple-A Omaha once the news broke about Getz getting injured. Giavotella is now likely to be called up to earn some playing time while Getz is out.
