Trey Hillman Pregame Media Session: July 24
Jose on the sidelines
Royals outfielder Jose Guillen has been put on the 15-Day Disabled List with an LCL tear in his right knee. Apparently, while preparing for his first at-bat of the game Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Guillen felt a pop in his right knee. According to Manager Trey Hillman, “At the moment, it is 4-6 weeks with the possibility of taking as long as 8-10. It might need to be surgically repaired, but we are looking into getting a second opinion on the knee and we’ll go from there.”
Not too much new to report from the Royals dugout today, except that Royals pitchers Gil Meche and Kyle Farnsworth both threw off the mound prior to the game today. They will be closely monitored, evaluated and a determination will be made on their readiness as well as progress from their prospective injuries.
