KANSAS CITY -- Royals second baseman Chris Getz, marking his first week on the disabled list on Sunday, believes he'll be ready to play when his 15 days are up.
Getz is out with a lateral strain in his lower left leg, sustained against the Cardinals last Sunday at Busch Stadium.
"We were aiming to get out in a rehab around Day 12 or 13. I don't know where that stands now from the original injury, but obviously I have to respond well from all the [treatment]," Getz said.
This is Getz's second stay on the DL this year. When healthy, he's hit .290 (29-for-100) in 36 games and fielded well. He has just two errors in 133 chances.
