Royals prospect Kyle Zimmer to miss additional time with lat injury

The Royals announced today that right-handed pitching prospect Kyle Zimmer will miss additional time this season with a strain in his right latissimus dorsi muscle. Zimmer, the fifth overall selection in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft, will begin playing catch again in six to eight weeks.

He earned a non-roster invite to Major League camp this season after going 6-9 with a 4.32 ERA (52 ER in 108.1 IP) in 22 combined starts between Class A Wilmington and Double-A Northwest Arkansas in 2013.
