Chris Getz injury: Royals place 2B on disabled list with left knee sprain
More Royals: KC Acquires Justin Maxwell
Dutton adds that Getz's injury will likely force the infielder play in a few minor-league rehab games before rejoining the team.
Getz, 29, has been dealing with his knee sprain for about two weeks now. The infielder's left knee gave out on him while running the bases on July 20, forcing him out of the game. He was able to return to the lineup just a few days after the initial injury, but continued discomfort has sidelined him since Sunday (his DL stint is backdated to then).
It's unclear what the club plans to do about making roster space when Getz returns from the DL since Maxwell is unlikely to go anywhere.
