Kansas City Royals second baseman Chris Getz is expected to miss the rest of the season with a broken left thumb. Getz was injured in the fifth inning Friday night when he tried to bunt against the Chicago White Sox. The pitch hit his hand and the ball went foul. Getz began the night batting .280 with no homers and 17 RBIs. He is scheduled to have surgery on his thumb Saturday. After their 4-2 victory over Chicago, the Royals recalled second baseman Johnny Giavotella from Triple-A Omaha, where he was hitting .323 with 10 home runs and 71 RBIs. Giavotella batted .217 in 69 at-bats earlier this season with the Royals. Kansas City manager Ned Yost said Giavotella would get the majority of playing time at second base with Getz out.
