Bueno OK after taking liner off wrist

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Royals left-handed pitcher Francisley Bueno sustained a bruised left wrist when he was struck by a batted ball in the fourth inning of Saturday's 4-2 win over the Texas Rangers.

A sharp grounder by the Rangers' Jeff Baker deflected off Bueno, but he recovered and threw for the third out. That ended his two-inning outing in which he gave up two runs and two hits. The injury is not believed to be serious.

Center fielder Lorenzo Cain, who's been out with a strained right hand, took about 50 swings in the batting cage on Saturday with no problems. He's expected back in action shortly.
