Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer could miss up to six weeks with a broken hand.
Hosmer will more than likely go on the disabled list.
Hosmer is hitting .268 with six homers and 46 RBI in 103 games for the Royals, who begin their weekend series against Oakland four games behind the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central. The Royals are also 3.5 games out of a wild card spot.
