David DeJesus


With a single in the first inning on Sunday, DeJesus extended his streak of reaching base safely to 19 games. The Cleveland Indians center fielder is hitting .308 (24-for-78) with nine RBIs and eight walks during this stretch.


DeJesus left Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox with tightness in his left hamstring. The Royals' center fielder may have been injured running out a groundball in the first inning of Kansas City's 4-1 loss. He was in the outfield for the bottom of the first, but was replaced by Shane Costa in the second.


After struggling while taking some swings and exhibiting a limited range of motion in the field during warmups this past weekend, it appears that DeJesus will not return this season. He suffered a sprained right shoulder on August 28 and has not played since.


Rehabbing a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, DeJesus did some throwing on Wednesday, before his Kansas City teammates faced the Chicago White Sox. The Royals' center fielder didn't experience any discomfort, and it's possible he may be able to return in about a week.


DeJesus is expected to miss at least the next two weeks with a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder. The Kansas City center fielder lacks range of motion and has a lot of pain in the shoulder.


DeJesus sprained the AC joint in his right shoulder Sunday, making a fine running catch and rolling over on the shoulder. He left the game and sat out Monday's contest against Minnesota. DeJesus is batting .293 with a .359 on-base percentage, 31 doubles, six triples and nine home runs.


DeJesus was absent from the Kansas City Royals' lineup for Saturday's game against the Oakland A's after hurting his rib cage the previous night. The injury is considered minor, and the outfielder is expected to return shortly. He is listed as day-to-day.


DeJesus reportedly suffered a mild concussion on a play at second base on Thursday. The Royals' center fielder caught a leg to the head on a slide at second. He left Kansas City's 11-9 loss to Boston, and he was replaced in the field by Chip Ambres.


DeJesus, who has been out of the starting lineup for a few games because of a bruised left foot, pinch-hit in Friday's loss to the Cardinals and is expected back in the starting lineup for Saturday's contest. DeJesus is batting .255 in 37 games this season.


DeJesus still is bothered by a bruised left foot he injured near the end of April. The Royals' center fielder has sat out the first two games of the team's midweek series with Baltimore, and he will be re-evaluated before the series finale on Thursday. His left shoe has been fitted with a hard plate to protect the foot, but the foot remains sore.


DeJesus sat out Kansas City's loss to the White Sox Sunday with a bruised left foot. The injury isn't believed to be serious, and the Royals' leadoff man should benefit from the team's off day on Monday. Look for DeJesus in the KC lineup on Tuesday, when the club hosts Minnesota.

Joe McEwing took over leadoff duties for DeJesus on Sunday and went 2-for-5 in the loss. On the season, DeJesus has a .304 average and .377 OBP.
