The Kansas City Royals got some bad news on Thursday, as they learned Eric Hosmer may miss up to six weeks or more with a stress fracture in his right hand. The injury, according to the Kansas City Star, is the result of the first baseman having been hit by a pitch on July 20 and was "camouflaged" by swelling that only recently subsided.
