BREAKING: Royals Slugger Out For Remainder Of Season

Kansas City Royals' slugging first baseman, Vinnie Pasquantino, faced unfortunate news as it was announced on Wednesday that he would miss the remainder of the 2023 season due to a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

The 25-year-old slugger had shown promise despite his underwhelming performance this year, making this setback all the more disappointing for both the team.

Initially placed on the 10-day injured list due to right shoulder discomfort, further tests revealed the severity of Pasquantino's injury, necessitating surgery to repair the torn labrum.

This unfortunate development is expected to result in his transfer to the 60-day injured list, creating a vacancy on the team's 40-man roster.

Pasquantino's 2023 season concludes with a triple-slash line of .247/.324/.437, along with nine home runs, 26 RBIs, and 24 runs scored in 61 games and 260 plate appearances.

Prior to his injury, the left-handed slugger had been performing well in his second major-league season, impressing with 17 doubles and a rising .247 batting average (57-for-231).
