KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Rookie left-hander Neal Musser will miss
the rest of the season after breaking the little finger on his
right hand. The Royals say Musser punched a chair in the clubhouse
after a poor relief outing.
Musser gave up a go-ahead double to Justin Morneau and retired
just one of the four batters in the Royals' 4-2 loss to Minnesota
X-rays after the game showed a break below his knuckle on his
right little finger. He was wearing a cast today.
Musser was 0-1 with a 4.38 ERA in 17 relief appearances for the
Royals this season, his first year in the majors.
