Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer's season certainly has not gone the way he had hoped or wanted. It might have ended Thursday when he bruised and strained his right shoulder in the second inning while diving for Quintin Berry's two-run triple into the right field corner at Detroit in a game the Royals lost 5-4 to the Tigers. Hosmer was replaced by reserve catcher Brayan Pena. Hosmer's shoulder will be re-evaluated Friday to detect the extent of the injury. Manager Ned Yost said the preliminary diagnosis is Hosmer has a pinch in his rotator cuff in the back. Hosmer said he "just landed awkwardly." Hosmer said he is sure he would not play Friday at Cleveland, but he is hopeful he could return before the season ends Wednesday.

In his past 14 games, Hosmer has hit .093 (4-for-43) with only one extra-base ...

Royals seem determined not to improve
