Getz cleared after passing concussion tests

KANSAS CITY -- Royals second baseman Chris Getz, who left Tuesday night's game with dizziness and an upset stomach, was cleared to play prior to Friday night's 16-2 loss to the Tigers after passing concussion tests.

Getz left the 4-3 win over the Mariners after two innings, shortly after being jarred while making a fielding play. He did not return for the third inning.

"I haven't even really looked at the play to be honest," Getz said. "It was more of how I reacted and how I felt, and then they put me through tests and you have to pass those tests for precautionary reasons."

Entering Saturday night's game, Getz was batting .225 through 20 games.
