Dyson returns to lineup after sitting with injury
CLEVELAND -- Center fielder Jarrod Dyson was back in the Royals' lineup on Monday after missing a game because of a bruised right hamstring.

Dyson was injured on Saturday at Baltimore in a collision with left fielder Alex Gordon as both were chasing a fly ball. Gordon made a terrific diving catch but, in the process, banged Dyson's right leg and put his spikes on Dyson's left knee.

"I'm just glad he caught the ball," Dyson said.

Gordon wasn't hurt. Dyson left the game and sat out Sunday at Baltimore, but he was ready for the Indians.

"I'll have to break something to keep me out," Dyson said.
