CLEVELAND (AP) Kansas City Royals first-base coach Rusty Kuntz had surgery on his broken left arm, an injury he sustained when he was hit by a line drive during pregame batting practice.
Kuntz had the operation Wednesday at the Cleveland Clinic. He was struck before Monday's series opener by a ball off the bat of Salvador Perez.
Kuntz was standing behind a protective net in shallow center field when he was hit. Kuntz was able to poke fun at himself afterward, saying it was the first time he had broken a bone.
