Royals' DeJesus likely done for year
DeJesus sprained his right thumb crashing into the fence in center field Thursday night in Yankee Stadium, a play that resulted in an inside-the-park homer for Derek Jeter. The Royals initially called the injury a sprain Friday when he was placed on the disabled list. He will have surgery Monday.
The Royals recalled outfielder Alex Gordon from Triple-A Omaha and inserted him into the lineup as the right fielder Friday against the Yankees.
