Getz set to return as Royals open White Sox set
KANSAS CITY -- Second baseman Chris Getz will rejoin the Royals on Friday against the White Sox.

Getz has been on the disabled list since June 18 with a lateral strain in his left lower leg. He was placed on the disabled list for the second time this season just six days after returning from a left ribcage contusion.

"It's been a bunch of fluke stuff," Getz said. "I feel a little snakebitten myself, but I felt like I came back so well last time, even though it was a short stint. Hopefully I come back just as well this time and go out there and just help the team as much as I can."

Getz has done well for the Royals this season, splitting time at second base with Yuniesky Betancourt. Getz is batting .290 in 36 games.

For Getz, he said the hardest part about being injured was being away from his teammates.

"Watching from afar is always tough," Getz said. "Whether they're doing well or not well, you want to go through these battles with them, and to not be able to do that is always tough. So I'm just happy to be here."
