Collins, Bueno Placed on DLFollow @RoyalsBlue_com
Kansas City pitchers Tim Collins and Francisely Bueno have been placed on the DL according to Royals beat writer Andy McCullough. Collins is listed with a flexor strain in his left elbow, while Bueno was said to have a sprain/bone bruise in his left little finger.
Collins continued to struggle in the game on Sunday, and has not been able to do a whole lot since the season began, appearing in 2 games while only accounting for 3 outs of work to the tune of 4 runs on 4 walks and 2 hits. His inability to find the strike zone is a problem he has had in the past, but not to the extent he has suffered in the early going this season. While his 36.00 ERA would seem to be indicative of the possibility the Royals brass may simply be feigning injury in order to give him time to get his mind right with time off and a few injury appearences in Omaha, Brian Bannister believes he may have actual problems based on his body language in his last start.
