SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Kansas City Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson is expected to miss the start of the season after straining his oblique while batting during the World Series champions’ spring training opener.

Dyson was removed from Wednesday’s game against Texas and taken for an MRI that revealed the Grade 2 strain. That type of injury typically takes about six weeks to heal, and manager Ned Yost said Thursday that Dyson will likely begin the season on the disabled list.

The speedy Dyson was expected to platoon with Paulo Orlando in right field.

Orlando now becomes the front-runner for the everyday job, though the Royals have an abundance of other options. Veteran Travis Snider, hot prospect Brett Eibner and Reymond Fuentes each could earn time there.
