Randa will have surgery Tuesday
Randa will undergo arthroscopic surgery on the knee Tuesday and will be sidelined for about a month, general manager Allard Baird said. Baird said Randa would be placed on the DL following the Royals' game with Baltimore on Monday night.
"He'll have a scope done to clean up the torn section down there," trainer Nick Swartz said. "Probably about a three- or four-week return."
Randa becomes the fourth Royals player in 10 days to go on the disabled list.
Closer Jeremy Affeldt has partially torn muscles in his rib cage, and will be out possibly two months.
In addition, the Royals traded star center fielder Carlos Beltran to Houston last Thursday.
