Hard day in Surprise for the Royals’ promising young lads:
- Eric Hosmer left yesterday’s game against the Giants after landing awkwardly on his right shoulder while making a diving stop at first base; and
- Mike Moustakas left Monday’s game against the Giants after being hit in the right knee by a pitch.
They’re both probably OK and may only miss a day or two to rest their owies.
But really, we’re starting to get into that point of spring training where it’s once again apt to say stuff like “man, why do they play so many spring training games? Dudes are gettin’ hurt for no reason.”
