Trey Hillman Pregame Media Session: June 14
Coco to the D.L.
Add Coco Crisp to the list of Royals players who are currently on the Disabled List. The centerfielder went on the 15-day Disabled List today with a sore shoulder. Manager Trey Hillman said, “We are going to keep him out until that shoulder fully heals, he can take as much time as he needs.” In his place on the active roster will be Tug Hulett. “He’s a good ballplayer, he can be very versatile for us,” said Hillman.
John Buck has been up and throwing in the last couple of days, but that is about the extent to which he can participate in activities. His back is quite sore and is need of constant and consistent rest. Mike Aviles is still resting his elbow, and Sidney Ponson had another encouraging bullpen session.
