Bannister seeking second opinion
Royals manager Trey Hillman said on Thursday that Meche would most likely be shut down for the final weeks of the season. He declined to speculate on whether Bannister would need surgery.
The Royals did not disclose the exact nature of the problems.
Meche is 6-10 with a 5.09 ERA and Bannister is 7-12, 4.73.
