Dyson dings shoulder in Winter League play

KANSAS CITY -- Jarrod Dyson returned to Kansas City this week to be examined after banging up his right shoulder while colliding with a wall during a game in the Venezuelan Winter League. The outfielder is expected to be OK.

General manager Dayton Moore said that Dyson, playing for Caracas, will take a couple of weeks to heal from a contusion and slight strain of the shoulder. He is not likely to return to Venezuela, where he was batting .227 (5-for-22) in seven games.

"He was tracking a ball and ran into a wall while chasing a deep foul. He's fine," Moore said.

In other news on Thursday, the Royals announced they had re-signed seven Minor League players: pitchers Andrew Dobies, Edgar Osuna and Mario Santiago; catcher Cody Clark; infielders Irving Falu and John Whittleman, and outfielder Paulo Orlando.
