"He's got some patellar tendinitis," Royals manager Ned Yost said after the game. "He's been playing through it a little bit, and it got a little worse out there. It just got sore. He was having trouble pushing off."

Almonte has made one appearance with the Royals this season. The 24-year-old allowed three runs on four hits against the Indians on May 28.
