KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- 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 on 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.
