Betancourt remains out of lineup

|
BOSTON -- Shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt was out of the Royals' lineup for the second successive game on Thursday night as he recovers from a mild concussion suffered in a home-plate collision with Rangers catcher Matt Treanor.

"We knew that going in, we knew were going to give him two days," Royals manager Ned Yost said.

"He's feeling fine, he thinks he's ready to play today and he probably is, but when you go through something like that, it's better to give him one more day and we'll re-evaluate him [Friday], and if he feels as good as he does today, we'll probably play him."

Mike Aviles was back at shortstop in Betancourt's place, with Chris Getz playing second base.
