KANSAS CITY -- Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson's season ended four innings prematurely on Wednesday night.
Dyson, who has been bothered by a lat strain near his right shoulder, was lifted after making a throw to second base when Austin Jackson doubled to drive in the Tigers' only run in their 1-0 victory.
"I felt it just a little bit and when I told them, they took me out so I wouldn't make it any worse than it was," Dyson said. "You want somebody out there that can make a throw if it comes to it. Not saying I can't make the throw, but just didn't want to put more pressure on my arm. But it wasn't bad or anything like that."
Jason Bourgeois pinch-hit for Dyson in the bottom of the fifth inning.
