Royals outfielder-designated hitter Jose Guillen left Tuesday night’s game against the Mariners with what appeared to be a left leg injury. On Wednesday he got an official diagnosis.
According to the Kansas City Star’s Bob Dutton, Guillen has a Grade 1 strain of his left quadriceps muscle and could be out for the next several days.
Guillen will be a free agent this winter and is likely to be shopped by the Royals at this year’s July 31 trade deadline. He has a .274 batting average, a .336 on-base percentage and a .453 slugging percentage in 318 at-bats this season with 14 home runs and 52 RBI.
If the 38-46 Royals shop him actively and aggressively, they may be able to net a prospect or two with a decent amount of upside.
